See Sarah Lancashire Bring Julia Child to Life in New HBO Max Series

The only bad thing about HBO Max‘s new series Julia is that we can’t eat the food.

The streaming platform released the first trailer for Julia, a show about Julia Child, on Tuesday, Mar. 1, inspiring feelings of hunger and a deep desire for a bowl of French onion soup. In addition to detailing her show The French Chef, “the series explores a pivotal time in American history—the emergence of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrity and America’s cultural evolution. At its heart, the series is a portrait of a loving marriage with a shifting power dynamic.”

In the preview, actress Sarah Lancashire plays the beloved chef, who tells her husband Paul Childs (David Hyde Pierce), “At this stage of my life, I want to feel relevant.” So, she sets out to promote her French cookbook on her own, advocating for herself in the face of criticism and negativity.
