Jason Segel’s AMC anthology series Dispatches from Elsewhere trailer is out and it’s got everyone talking. Dispatches from Elsewhere is created, written by and stars Jason Segel. Also starring Sally Field (Forrest Gump, Smokey and the Bandit), Andre Benjamin of R&B group Outkast (Four Brothers, Idlewild), Eve Lindley (Mr. Robot), and Richard E. Grant (Hudson Hawk, Gosford Park), Segel will executively produce with Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and Garrett Basch for AMC Studios. Filming began earlier this year.
Segel, usually a comedic actor turns his sights on this new drama that tells the tale of four people who feel they’re missing something in their life, who stumble onto a puzzle hidden in plain sight. According to a summary by AMC,
“Four ordinary people feel there's something missing in their lives, but can't quite put their finger on what it is, are brought together by chance - or perhaps it's by design - when they stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. As they begin to accept the mysterious "Dispatches from Elsewhere" challenges, they come to find that the mystery winds deeper than they imagined, and their eyes are opened to a world of possibility and magic.”
It sets the stage for a show that could potentially take us anywhere with a possibility of magic and mystery! It also has stong ties to actual life events, which either makes it terrifying, interesting or both.
The first phrase in the trailer, “Welcome to the Jejune Institute,” is strange and an interesting rabbit hole to get lost in. According to Vice,
“The Jejune Institute might have gone the same way. Over three years, the game/art installation/social movement became a living metafiction, encompassing a series of “episodes” staged around San Francisco as well as an online community. You might call it an alternate reality game, but its creator insists the term is insufficient.”
The trailer for the new show sounds eerily familiar with the Jejune account. In San Francisco during the event in 2008-2011, the search for Eva, a teen-punk from the 1980’s was in full effect. People would have to look for clues and tie them together to further their search. The storyline only got weirder and more confusing as the game went on.
In the Dispatches from Elsewhere trailer, we hear a voice telling them they must find Clara. This could be an obvious nod to the real-life event where they had to look for Eva. The whole story behind it can lead you down a rabbit hole for hours, days and even months if you care about it enough.
Segel looks to combine fiction with fantasy to create a unique one a kind story that will fit perfectly into AMC’s standards for taking these amazing storylines and creating number one shows.
Look for Dispatches from Elsewhere on AMC early next year and be sure to check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
