HBO NOW Unveils Movember Collection, Celebrating the Most Iconic Moustaches in HBO History to Raise Awareness for Men's Health
New York, NY - (October 30, 2015) - From Al Swearengen's 1870s businessman moustache to Rust Cohle's trucker 'stache, HBO NOW has created a collection of episodes and programs featuring the most iconic moustaches in HBO history as part of the Movember Foundation's annual Movember campaign, which helps encourage men to live happier, healthier, and longer lives through investing in four key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and physical inactivity. Celebrate the 'Stache: 22 HBO Moustaches for Movember is available on HBO NOW today and features moustaches made famous in hit HBO programming including Deadwood, True Detective, Game of Thrones, Flight of the Conchords, VEEP, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Bored to Death and Sex and the City, among other hit series and films. Subscribers can check out the full collection starting November 2, and a 30-day free trial of HBO NOW will be available to new subscribers throughout the month.
The Movember campaign challenges men to grow and women to support the moustache or make a commitment to get active and MOVE for the 30 days of November. HBO fans can get in on the action by tweeting and posting pictures of their favorite moustaches from HBO shows or even growing a moustache to look like one their favorite characters. The @HBONOW Twitter handle will be on the look-out for the best 'staches all month, sharing Movember-themed content and elevating fans' posts.
In addition to the Movember Collection on HBO NOW, HBO will also make a contribution to the Movember Foundation and challenge its employees worldwide to help spread awareness for men's health by either growing their moustaches or joining the MOVE efforts.
The Movember Foundation is the leading global charity raising funds and awareness for men's health, raising over $650 million and funding 1,000 programs in 21 countries to date. Men and women sign up at Movember.com, and choose to grow, give or MOVE. Men start Movember 1st clean-shaven and grow only a moustache for the month, or men and women can commit to MOVE every day during Movember. After signing up to grow or MOVE, participants get friends, family, or colleagues to donate to their efforts to change the face of men's health.
