Apple has just dropped the official trailer for its upcoming comedy series, “The Big Door Prize”. The show, which stars Chris O’Dowd, is set to premiere on March 29 on Apple TV+ and will consist of ten episodes, with one new episode being released every Wednesday through May 17.
Based on M.O. Walsh’s novel of the same name, “The Big Door Prize” takes place in a small town that’s forever changed by the sudden appearance of a mysterious machine in the local general store. The Morpho machine promises to reveal each resident’s true potential in life, leading to some unexpected revelations and life changes.
The show’s main character is high school teacher Dusty Hubbard, played by O’Dowd, who remains skeptical of the machine’s abilities. As the townspeople start using the machine to reevaluate their life choices and ambitions, Dusty’s wife, Cass (played by Gabrielle Dennis), realizes that the machine’s printouts might be able to help her achieve a better life.
In addition to O’Dowd and Dennis, the series also features Ally Maki, Josh Segarra, Damon Gupton, Crystal Fox, Djouliet Amara, and Sammy Fourlas.
