AMC unveiled a press release today giving an inside look at the new anthology series Dispatches From Elsewhere, created by and starring Jason Segel.
Along with Segel, the series also stars Sally Field, Andre Benjamin, Richard E. Grant and Eve Lindley. It debuts it two-night premiere event on Sunday, March 1 and Monday, March 2 on AMC.
The ten-hour series is centered around four ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is. This diverse foursome is brought together by chance – or perhaps it’s by design – when they stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. As they begin to accept the mysterious ‘Dispatches from Elsewhere’ challenges, they come to find that the mystery winds deeper than they imagined, and their eyes are opened to a world of possibility and magic.
The AMC Studios production is executive produced by Segel, Scott Rudin, showrunner Mark Friedman, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, Jeff Freilich and Alethea Jones.
