Loot Trailer: Maya Rudolph Is A Billionaire Acting How All Billionaires Actually Should

Apple TV+ is continuing its star-studded comedy game with the new Maya Rudolph starring series "Loot," from Emmy Award-winning creators Alan Yang ("Little America," "Master of None," "Parks and Recreation") and Matt Hubbard ("30 Rock," "Forever," "Parks and Recreation"). The series sees Rudolph as billionaire Molly Novak, who lives a life that most of us could only dream of. She's a jet-setter who lives in a sprawling mansion, owns a gigayacht, and has spent the last two decades married to the man of her dreams (Adam Scott).

However, Molly's life is completely flipped on its head when she discovers that her husband has been having an affair with a much younger woman, she has a very public meltdown that destroys her reputation and makes her the perfect target for tabloid gossip. Now, plummeting toward rock bottom but armed with an $87 billion divorce settlement, Molly she decides to get involved with the charity foundation she forgot she owns, redeem her public image at the request of her foundation's figurehead Sofia Salinas (Michaela JaƩ Rodriguez), figure out who she truly is, and finally put her excessive wealth to good use.

It's as if real-life billionaire MacKenzie Scott was in a comedy series and the entire world wasn't already irreversibly damaged by her ex-husband. Now, that's a kind of escapism I can get behind!

Loot trailer

"You're like the most famous cheated on woman on the planet."

In addition to her starring role, Maya Rudolph is also executive producing "Loot," along with Natasha Lyonne and Danielle Renfrew Behrens, together through their Animal Pictures banner. Dave Becky of 3 Arts also serves as executive producer. This is the second collaboration between Apple TV+ and creator Alan Lang, after the two joined forces on the three-time Independent Spirit Award, BAFTA and NAACP Image Award nominated anthology series, "Little America." Joining Rudolph, Scott, and Rodriguez in the cast are Ron Funches ("Undateable"), Nat Faxon ("Married"), and Joel Kim Booster ('Sunnyside").

Based on the trailer, "Loot" looks to be a solid addition to the Apple TV+ lineup, which also includes "Mythic Quest," "Physical," "Schmigadoon!," "Trying," "Ted Lasso," "Acapulco," and "The Afterparty." Yang and Hubbard both have a knack for inserting a lot of heart beneath the punchlines, so we can expect at least a handful of warm fuzzies to go with our belly laughs.

"Loot" will debut globally on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes on Friday, June 24, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
