HBO’s multi genre-spanning series “Room 104” returns this September with twelve episodes that combine comedy, horror, and much more.
Created by Jay and Mark Duplass (HBO’s “Animals.” and “Togetherness”), “the late-night, half-hour anthology series returns with 12 new episodes, telling unique and unexpected tales of the characters who pass through a single room of a typical American chain motel. While the room stays the same, every episode of the series features a different story, with the tone, plot, characters, and even the time period, changing with each installment. Tapping into a variety of genres, from dark comedy to poignant drama to musical romance, the stories and characters featured in season 3 include: a man searching for a cure to his chronic skin condition; the caretaker of an exotic animal looking to make a sale; estranged siblings reuniting to make an investment; and more. Filled with plenty of twists and surprises, this season offers a new discovery from one episode to the next, telling tales of everyday people striving for connection and meaning inside a single room.”
