Dispatches From Elsewhere teaser: Jason Segel is wrapped ip in a chilling mystery
Though primarily known for his comedic efforts, Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) is trying his hand at the mystery genre with the upcoming AMC anthology Dispatches From Elsewhere, which has debuted its first teaser and can be viewed in the player below!
Created by and starring Segel, who will also direct the pilot, Dispatches From Elsewhere is about a group of ordinary people who stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. They will come to find that the mystery winds far deeper than they ever imagined.
In addition to Segel, the cast will also feature Richard E. Grant (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Sally Field (Maniac) and André Benjamin (High Life). Segel executive produces with Scott Rudin, showrunner Mark Friedman, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, Jeff Freilich and Jones. An AMC Studios production, the hour-long series will include viewer engagement elements across multiple media platforms.
André Benjamin — best known as André 3000 — is one of the most celebrated artists of the last three decades, an auteur whose work in music, film, fine arts, fashion, and more continues to influence the cultural landscape on a global scale. After conquering music, André set his eyes on other mediums within which to create, becoming a highly sought-after actor in acclaimed films such as JIMI: All Is By My Side, High Life, Four Brothers, and more. In 2006, he created Cartoon Network’s Class of 3000, an animated series about a successful musician who leaves the spotlight to teach music at an Atlanta area performing arts school. His unique flair for fashion drew the eyes of the fashion world.
The series is set to premiere next year!
