Apple Shares Teaser for 'The Mosquito Coast' Coming to Apple TV+ April 30

Apple today shared a teaser trailer for "The Mosquito Coast," a TV series starring Justin Theroux that's coming to Apple TV+ on Friday, April 30.


Adapted from the novel of the same name, "The Mosquito Coast" follows a radical inventor who uproots his family and moves to Mexico to escape the U.S. government.

From award-winning novelist and creator Neil Cross, and based on the best-selling book by Paul Theroux which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, "The Mosquito Coast" is a gripping adventure and layered character drama following the dangerous journey of a radical idealist and brilliant inventor, Allie Fox (played by Justin Theroux), who uproots his family for Mexico when they suddenly find themselves on the run from the US government.

The first two episodes of the show will premiere on April 30, with five additional episodes to follow each Friday following the launch. Along with Theroux, the series stars Melissa George, Logan Polish and Gabriel Bateman.

Awkward! Jen and Justin on the same network. It would be one thing if it were a huge network like Netflix. But this is like sitting next to each other on the bus given how few shows Apple TV+ has.
I think you meant to post this on TMZ, this is MacRumors.

I think it looks good, reminds me of Ozark. Not sure why people continue to crap on Apple TV+, I find it to be a great service.

Apple is slowly but consistently delivering good content! Now make a big acquisition so I can cancel my HBO MAX.

It’s probably worth mentioning that Justin Theroux is Paul Theroux’s nephew. :)

This x 100. Btw, very few people are "crapping" on Apple TV+ anymore. At least, not the ones I meet in public, and chat with on the internet/social media.

The people who diss TV+ are people with either horrible taste in entertainment, are anti-Apple (looking at you, Android4Life ppl), or who pre-judge TV/movies before watching even one episode.

The normal people (which is most) who don't fall into those groups certainly don't have this vitriol against TV+ (and many others are glowing with how great the content quality has been).
That's a fair point, I really only see it on this site. Anyone I talk to loves the service. From a purely original content standpoint, I'd consider it the best.
