Whether or not you've heard of HBO's mockumentary television show "Family Tree," chances are you know at least one of the films by its creator, Christopher Guest.
This new show, from the mind of Guest (best known for films like "This Is Spinal Tap," "Waiting for Guffman," "Best in Show," and "For Your Consideration"), takes audiences inside Tom Chadwick's journey to learn more about his family after he is given a box of belongings left behind by his great-aunt.

"Family Tree," with its dry and offbeat sense of humor, has the benefit of performers such as English comedian and ventriloquist Nina Conti, who plays Tom's sister, Bea, Michael McKean (of "SNL" fame), who plays his father, Keith, plus Ed Begley Jr. (of "St. Elsewhere" and "Arrested Development) and Christopher Guest, who play two of Tom's American relatives.
After only one season on the air, the show is already receiving great critical acclaim for its quirky and eccentric cast of characters. Many cast members, including Ed Begley Jr., Michael McKean, and Fred Willard, have appeared in multiple Guest films.
