The plotline of the Olive Kitteridge series unfolds around a small cozy town Crosby. Its inhabitants pursue a fishing industry. All in all, the series comprises around twenty years of the Kitteridge family life. It consists of a wife, Olive, aged teacher of mathematics, a husband, Henry, and their son teenager. Each of the thirteen episodes of the premiere season is a separate story and a unique adventure, and they are connected by a slim tether of the common events. Every story has invariably its own protagonist – prim and strict Olive Kitteridge. She is a true embodiment of a shallow-hearted and cold-blooded pensioner. But her mood influences greatly the progression of events in the series. Some citizens have their skeletons in the closet, which leaves the viewers open-mouthed with their frightening consequences. This TV project will catch fancy of those who are fond of tightly-plotted adventure stories and of the fans of dramatic genre. It will bring some intrigue and variety in calm evenings during the family viewing.
