The White Lotus on HBO – what is it about?
The White Lotus is a social satire set in an exclusive Hawaiian resort.
Without giving too much away, the series follows the vacations of various hotel guests over a week while they relax and unwind in paradise.
But … obviously it’s not REALLY Paradise!
With every day that goes by, a darker complexity emerges in these picture-perfect travelers.
The cheerful staff at the hotel are not at all what they seem, and neither is the quaint eatery itself.
The cast of the White Lotus – who will star in it
Nashville actress Connie Britton and Dirty John will star in the new drama, as will Australian actor Murray Bartlett.
Legally Blonde Star Jennifer Coolidge rocks as a super needy guest at the resort too.
Baywatch’s Alexandra Daddario and Modern Family’s Steve Zahn also make an appearance – she’s on her honeymoon when her mother-in-law (ARGH!) Shows up while he’s telling himself he has testicular cancer.
Other actors include Fred Hechinger, Jake Lacy, Brittany O’Grady, Natasha Rothwell and Sydney Sweeney.
Recurring guest stars include Molly Shannon (as the aforementioned nightmare mother-in-law), Jon Gries, Jolene Purdy, Kekoa Kekumano, and Lukas Gage.

Who wrote the HBO satire?
Most of you will recognize the writer Mike White as well.
In addition to writing School of Rock – and other stuff including Nacho Libre – he starred in it as Ned Schneebly.
He said in a statement last year, “It’s more than exciting to be returning to HBO with this project and such an incredible cast.
“I’m very grateful to everyone who made it possible for us to bring our little bladder to Hawaii, a place that I proudly consider a home away from home.”
