Season 1 premieres Mon July 31 on showcase.
All-new half-hour anthology series from Jay and Mark Duplass that tells assorted tales of the various characters who pass through a single room of an average American motel.
Created by Jay and Mark Duplass (Animals., Togetherness), Room 104 is a new HBO half-hour anthology series that takes a peek inside one room at an average American corporate motel, exploring the stories of the characters who pass through it on any given night. Embracing the idea that “the banal” can be a most interesting place if you stop and take a look, each of the season’s 12 episodes tells a different story, as the room stays the same everything else – the tone, the plot, the characters, even the time period – changes. Tapping into a variety of genres including comedy, drama, thriller and horror, the stories and characters featured in Season One include: the tale of a pizza- delivery boy who gets way more than he bargained for; a babysitting gig gone eerily awry; a love story between two octogenarians; a woman seeking to enter another realm of reality with the help of a cult-like priest; two Mormon missionaries thrust into a crisis of faith; and more. Poignant, quirky, and filled with plenty of twists and surprises, each episode of Room 104 plays like a mini-movie, offering a new discovery from one week to the next, telling tales of everyday people striving for connection and meaning inside a single room.
