Four ordinary people brought together by chance stumble into a bizarre puzzle permeating their everyday lives in the offbeat and mysterious trailer for “Dispatches From Elsewhere,” premiering in March on AMC.
Oscar-winning Stern Show veteran Sally Field stars on the series alongside funnyman Jason Segel, rapper and actor André Benjamin, and “Mr. Robot’s” Eve Lindley. Together they must unravel a curious case of a missing woman named Claire while also contending with an enigmatic foil played by recent Oscar nominee Richard E. Grant. As the strangers turned allies begin to accept the puzzle’s mysterious challenges, the four come to find that the mystery winds deeper than they imagined and soon their eyes are opened to a world of possibility and magic.
Not everyone is so easily convinced, however, including Field’s character. “Quite an elaborate hoax,” she says at one point (above), amid a montage of talking fish, rain dancing, and cloaked occult figures. “Thrilling.”
As Stern Show fans may remember, Sally spoke of several thrilling subjects during her 2016 sit down with Howard, opening up to him about everything from her early days as TV’s “Flying Nun” to her work on “The Amazing Spider-Man” and opposite the late Robin Williams in “Mrs. Doubtfire.” Take a listen (below).
“Dispatches From Elsewhere” debuts March 1 on AMC.
