Tales from the Loop

Amazon has done a wonderful job of keeping things mysterious with the promotional materials, and there’s a sense of awe and wonder with technology surrounding the people.

Synopsis: Tales from the Loop explores the town and people who live above “The Loop,” a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe – making things possible that were previously relegated only to science fiction. In this fantastical mysterious town, poignant human tales are told that bare universal emotional experiences, while drawing on the intrigue of genre storytelling.

The series is created and written by Nathaniel Halpern, and it’s the first television series in history to be adapted from digital paintings. He also serves as an executive producer along with Matt Reeves (The Batman, War of the Planet of the Apes), Mark Romanek, Adam Kassan, Rafi Crohn, Mattias Montero, Samantha Taylor Pickett and Adam Berg.

The series stars Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Town), Paul Schneider (Parks and Recreation), Daniel Zolghadri (Eighth Grade), Duncan Joiner (Waco) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes, Game of Thrones).

Tales from the Loop contains 8 episodes and will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on April 3, 2020.

The World Premiere event will be held on March 16 at SXSW.
