So HBOMax has been pushing Jett pretty hard in my recommendations, and I decided to give it a chance. I’m really glad I did. This premiered on Cinemax back in 2019, when they were winding down their original programming, and I think it just got lost in the shuffle.
It’s very Tarantino, and very Elmore Leonard, and in the smart-trashy vein of dearly departed Terriers and Stumptown, with an incredible performance by Carla Gugino.
It looks like she and the creator, Sebastian Gutierrez (who is Gugino’s creative and romantic partner for going on 20 years) are trying to get a new show with some thematic overlap off the ground. I hope that HBOMax pushing Jett means they plan to air that show as well.
