The White Lotus - All We Know So Far

HBO definitely has you covered if you’re searching for a soapy, humorous summer viewing. This summer, HBO and HBO Max will broadcast “The White Lotus,” a six-episode satirical comedy limited series set at a Hawaiian resort. Mike White, who previously developed the cult classic HBO dramedy “Enlightened,” in which Laura Dern plays a troubled woman undergoing a spiritual conversion that allows her to channel her selfishness for good, wrote, directed, and executive-produced the show. As seen by his screenplays for films such as “School of Rock” and “The Good Girl,” White is a sharp observer of self-absorbed characters who ultimately mean well.

Since “Enlightened” finished in 2013, “The White Lotus” is White’s debut TV series, which is quite intriguing for fans of his unique aesthetic. The cast, release date, and narrative of the limited series “The White Lotus” are all listed here.
