‘Room 104′ Trailer: HBO Opens Door To Duplass Bros.’ Anthology Series

HBO’s teaser trailer for the Duplass Brothers’ upcoming anthology series Room 104 doesn’t give much away in terms of plot, but offers what seems a pretty clear sense of the show’s bonkers mood and eccentric approach. Set in a single room of an American hotel (hence the title), Room 104 tells a different story in each of its 12 weeks as guests check in and out.

From what we could make out, the guest book includes a couple Mormon missionaries, a dorky kid in a bath towel cape, a Santa Claus, an passionate elderly couple and James Van Der Beek dancing around in a tux.

The half-hour Room 104, from Mark and Jay Duplass, premieres at 11:30 PM July 28 on HBO.

The lengthy list of the show’s actors includes Hugo Armstrong, Davie-Blue, Melonie Diaz, Jay Duplass, Veronica Falcon, Adam Foster, Ellen Geer, Keir Gilchrist, Philip Baker Hall, Sarah Hay, Poorna Jagannathan, Orlando Jones, Ethan & Gavin Kent, Amy Landecker, Konstantin Lavysh, Sameerah Luqmaan-Harris, Keta Meggett, Natalie Morgan, Ross Partridge, Karan Soni, Dendrie Taylor, Tony Todd, Will Tranfo, James Van Der Beek, Mae Whitman and Nat Wolff.
