HBO presents “White Lotus,” a social satire set in Hawaii
Madrid, May 12 (EFE) .- The HBO platform presented “White Lotus” this Wednesday, a social satire set in an exclusive Hawaiian resort that will premiere on July 12.
Created by Mike White ("Enlightened"), the six-episode series portrays several hotel guests' vacations for a week as they relax and rejuvenate in paradise.
With each passing day, HBO added in the statement, "a darker complexity emerges in the lives of these perfect travelers, the giggling hotel employees and that idyllic setting."
"White Lotus" stars Murray Bartlett ("Looking"), Connie Britton ("Nashville"), Jennifer Coolidge ("2 Broke Girls"), Alexandra Daddario ("True Detective"), Fred Hechinger ("Eighth Grade") , Jake Lacy ("Girls"), Brittany O'Grady ("Little Voice"), Natasha Rothwell ("Insecure"), Sydney Sweeney ("Euphoria") and Steve Zahn ("Treme").
Guest stars will include Molly Shannon ("Divorce"), Jon Gries ("Dream Corp LLC"), Jolene Purdy ("Scarlet Witch and Vision"), Kekoa Kekumano ("Aquaman") and Lukas Gage ("Euphoria").
The series has been filmed on the island of Maui and will feature some characters such as Armond (Bartlett), the fussy resort manager, who, "after a sudden trauma, begins a dramatic downward spiral", while Rothwell will be Belinda, the spa manager, who "is embarked on an emotional roller coaster by a guest."
Guests will include members of the Mossbacher family, including Nicole (Connie Britton), “a successful high-level executive who can't help but treat her family like disobedient employees” and her husband, Mark (Steve Zahn), who deals with with an embarrassing health crisis and a tremendous inferiority complex.
