The Premise season 1
This is a satirical anthology, so each 30-minute episode will tell a new story with a new cast. The authors promise a provocative approach to topical contemporary topics. For example, in the first episode, we are talking about a home video of a sexual nature, which accidentally fell on an episode of police violence. Episode two follows a father who lost his daughter in a school shooting and his new job as a PR for the National Arms Association. Well, the topics are really provocative, let's see how BJ Novak handles them.
