Created by the Duplass brothers, each episode of “Room 104” tells a different story that takes place in the same hotel room. The 12-episode first season began July 28.

“We can’t remember the last time we had so much fun making something,” say Jay and Mark Duplass. “We’re excited to go even further down the rabbit hole with this show.”

Jay and Mark Duplass serve as executive producers with Sydney Fleischmann and Mel Eslyn. Tyler Romery serves as producer.

In her review of the first five episodes or “Room 104” for Variety, Maureen Ryan wrote, “All in all, ‘Room 104. is to be lauded for its adventurousness, but more rigorous attention to quality control could have made it more consistently enthralling.
