HBO has announced that it has ordered the anthology comedy series Room 104 from Jay and Mark Duplass, which will revolve around a room in an average American hotel and tell the story of the various guests who pass through it each episode.
“Jay and Mark Duplass are two of the most inventive talents in TV today,” states HBO president of programming Casey Bloys. “We’re excited to see what they do with this unique concept.”
“We’ve all seen stories set in seedy motels and high-class international resorts, but for years we’ve been fascinated by the funny, weird, sad, scary, absurd things going down in that corporate chain hotel near the airport. That’s what Room 104 is after… finding some magic in the seemingly mundane,” adds Jay and Mark Duplass.
The Duplass brothers will serve as executive producers on the series, which will go into production later this year ahead of a 2017 premiere.
