Described as a "retro-future dramedy," the show features a group of traveling salesmen who are hawking lunar timeshares.

Crudup will play the starring role of Jack, a talented, ambitious salesman "whose unshakeable faith in a brighter tomorrow inspires his coworkers, revitalizes his desperate customers but threatens to leave him dangerously lost in the very dream that sustains him."

The series is directed by Jonathan Entwistle, known for "The End of the F***ing World," with Crudup serving as an executive producer.

In addition to starring in this new series, Crudup is also working on season two of "The Morning Show," which is set to premiere on ‌Apple TV+‌ later this year.

Agree with the sentiments here; he provided an excellent counterpoint in The Morning Show and gave a nuanced performance.

Looking forward to this new show. Sounds like a little of the Ted Lasso ethos may be in the recipe. I wonder if Apple can do it again.

In 2018, I walked out of a Walgreens and he was standing right there in front of me. Big Fish is one of my favorites.
