HBO has you covered if you’re searching for a soapy, humorous summer watch. This summer, HBO and HBO Max will premiere “The White Lotus,” a six-episode satirical comedy limited series set at a Hawaiian resort.
Mike White, who previously created the cult classic HBO dramedy “Enlightened,” which stars Laura Dern as a troubled woman undergoing a spiritual conversion that allows her to channel her selfishness for good, wrote, directed, and executive-produced the show.
In his writings for films like “School of Rock” and “The Good Girl,” White is a sharp observer of self-absorbed people who ultimately mean well.
Since “Enlightened” finished in 2013, “The White Lotus” is White’s debut TV series, which is quite exciting for fans of his distinct style. Here’s everything we know so far about “The White Lotus,” including the cast, release date, and narrative.
When Will The White Lotus Be Released?
On Sunday, July 11 at 9 p.m. EST, HBO will premiere “The White Lotus,” which will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
According to Maui News, the series was shot at the Four Seasons Resort Maui last fall and followed COVID-19 requirements.
According to the publication, the production had given approximately 2,000 COVID tests to the team by the time “The White Lotus” was roughly halfway through filming, with no positives.
Mike White stated in a statement announcing the limited series, “It’s beyond exciting to return to HBO with this project and such an outstanding cast” (via Variety).
“I’m grateful to everyone who has helped us move our tiny bubble to Hawaii, a place I’m pleased to call home.”
The series’ trailer has yet to be released, but fans should keep a look out as the launch date approaches.
Who Is In The White Lotus Cast?
“The White Lotus” features a vast ensemble cast that includes actors who have been in a number of HBO shows as well as other small-screen favourites (via WarnerMedia).
Murray Bartlett, best known for his role as aspiring San Francisco restaurateur Dom Basaluzzo on HBO’s dramedy “Looking,” Connie Britton, star of “Friday Night Lights” and “Nashville,” and Jennifer Coolidge, well known for playing Stifler’s mother in the “American Pie” film series, and Paulette Bonafonté Parcelle in the “Legally Blonde” films, star in the series.
Alexandra Daddario, who starred in Season 1 of “True Detective” and the “Percy Jackson” film series, will also appear in “The White Lotus,” as will Fred Hechinger, who starred in “Eighth Grade” (who will also be seen in the upcoming Netflix film trilogy “Fear Street”).
Jake Lacy (from “Girls”), Brittany O’Grady (from “Little Voice”), Natasha Rothwell (from “Insecure”), and Sydney Sweeney and Lukas Gage (from “Euphoria”) will all appear in the new series. Along with “Saturday Night Live” mainstay Molly Shannon, the cast includes legendary character actor Steve Zahn, who starred in the HBO thriller “Treme.”
Mike White frequently appears in his own productions, but it’s unclear whether he’ll be in “The White Lotus.”
What Is The White Lotus’s Plot?
According to the character descriptions in the series, “The White Lotus” appears to contain a variety of stories that will intersect in unexpected ways as the characters interact throughout their stay at the hotel. According to WarnerMedia, the hotel’s “fastidious” manager, Armond (Murray Bartlett), is suffering from a “dramatic downward spiral” following a terrible occurrence, while spa manager Belinda (Natasha Rothwell) is “taken on an emotional roller coaster trip by a needy guest.”
The Mossbacher family, which includes Nicole (Connie Britton), “a successful type-A executive who can’t help but treat her family like disobedient employees,” her husband Mark (Steve Zahn), who has “an embarrassing health crisis and a terminal inferiority complex,” and their teenaged son Quinn (Fred Hechinger), “a socially awkward gamer, experiencing the wonder of nature for the first time,” is among the hotel guests.
“Sharp-tongued college sophomores who cast a cynical eye on the lifestyles and belief systems of everyone around them,” the two teen ladies are described as.
Shane (Jake Lacy) and Rachel Patton (Alexandra Daddario) are newlyweds whose honeymoon phase is coming to an end… while they’re still on their honeymoon.
Shane’s mother, Kitty (Molly Shannon), arrives unexpectedly and unwelcomely, exacerbating the dilemma. Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge), “a wealthy, unstable woman, recovering from the death of her mother, flying alone to the hotel, yearning for love and in dire need of a massage,” is the final character.
If you’re looking forward to seeing “The White Lotus,” mark July 11 on your calendars for the series’ launch on HBO and HBO Max.
