The Variety Streaming Room is hosting a special screening of the first episode of AMC’s “Dispatches From Elsewhere,” followed by a Q&A with creator and star Jason Segel and cast members Eve Lindley and André Benjamin. The screening and Q&A will take place on June 9 at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET.
Variety’s Michael Schneider will moderate the exclusive Q&A with the cast and discuss the first season.
“Dispatches From Elsewhere” is a ten-episode series centered around four ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but can’t quite put their finger on what it is. The group is brought together by chance 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.
AMC Network is home to several popular and acclaimed programs on television. It was the first basic cable network to ever win the Emmy for outstanding drama series with “Mad Men” in 2008, which then went on to win the coveted award four years in a row, before the network’s “Breaking Bad” won it in 2013 and 2014. AMC’s hit show “The Walking Dead” is also the highest-rated series in cable history.
The Variety Streaming Room is dedicated to presenting virtual conversations that span private screenings of upcoming projects in film and TV, exclusive Q&As with creators and talent and relevant B2B discussions with industry thought leaders.
