When a trailer for a show has people digging their own graves, presumably as a way to send a message about the changes they need to make in their lives, well, that sends a message. A pretty loud one. Which is precisely what Nine Perfect Strangers wants to do. The 8-episode series, which is coming to Hulu next month, and features a stellar cast, is not hitting any familiar notes. In fact, we’re not even sure where it’s going or what twist is coming our way.
That’s what makes it interesting. And that’s why we’ll give it a chance.
Here’s the synopsis for the show:
Based on The New York Times bestselling book by author Liane Moriarty, “Nine Perfect Strangers” takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this 10-day retreat is the resort’s director, Masha, a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. However, these nine “perfect” strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.
The eight-episode series stars Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon, Luke Evans, Bobby Cannavale, Regina Hall, Samara Weaving, Melvin Gregg, Asher Keddie, Grace Van Patten, Tiffany Boone and Manny Jacinto.
