Apple TV+ today unveiled the star-studded trailer for its new workplace comedy “Loot,” starring and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live,” “Bridesmaids”).
The 10-episode comedy, from Emmy Award-winning creators Alan Yang (“Little America,” “Master of None”) and Matt Hubbard (“30 Rock,” “Forever”), will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, June 24 with the first three episodes, followed by one new episode every Friday thereafter.
The entire cast of “Loot” is led by actors Michaela Jaé Rodriguez (“Pose”), Ron Funches (“Undateable”), Nat Faxon (“Married”), and Joel Kim Booster (‘Sunnyside”), in addition to Rudolph.
In “Loot,” Molly Novak (Rudolph) is a billionaire with a dream lifestyle that includes private jets, a large mansion, and a gigayacht – anything her heart desires. But when her 20-year-husband betrays her, she explodes in public, becoming tabloid fodder.
She’s at her lowest point when she discovers, to her astonishment, that she has a charity foundation overseen by the tough-as-nails Sofia Salinas (Rodriguez), who begs Molly to stop causing trouble.
Molly goes on a journey of self-discovery with the support of her dedicated assistant Nicholas (Kim Booster) and Sofia and the team, which includes mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Faxon) and her cheerful, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Funches). Giving back to others could be just what she needs to reclaim her identity.
“Loot” is created, written and executive produced by Yang and Hubbard. Through their Animal Pictures banner, Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne, and Danielle Renfrew Behrens executive produce. 3 Arts’ Dave Becky also acts as executive producer. Universal Television, a part of Universal Studio Group, is producing “Loot” for Apple.
Following the three-time Independent Spirit Award, BAFTA, and NAACP Image Award-nominated anthology series “Little America,” this is Apple TV+’s second collaboration with Yang.
