Jason Segel, Eve Lindley and André Benjamin joined the Variety Streaming Room for a Q&A after a screening of the first episode from their new TV series, “Dispatches From Elsewhere.” Moderated by Variety senior editor Michael Schneider, the stars discussed the making of the series, their connection to their characters and what they hope the audience takes away from the show.

“Dispatches From Elsewhere” was created by Segel and premiered March 1 on AMC. Based on Jeff Hull and Spencer McCall’s documentary “The Institute,” the show follows four normal people who discover an alternate reality puzzle and fall deeper into its realm while attempting to solve the mystery behind it.
