Prime Video released first-look images for Expats, the six-part limited series based on the internationally best-selling novel The Expatriates, by Janice Y. K. Lee. And we can’t wait for this show! Ready?
Here we go!
The Lulu Wang-directed series stars Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning actor Nicole Kidman, Sarayu Blue, Ji-young Yoo, Brian Tee, and Jack Huston. Expats will have the world premiere screening of its feature-length penultimate episode at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8 and will premiere in early 2024 on Prime Video.
Set against the vibrant and tumultuous tapestry of 2014 Hong Kong, Expats centers on three American women—Margaret (Nicole Kidman), Hilary (Sarayu Blue), and Mercy (Ji-young Yoo)—whose lives intersect after a sudden family tragedy.
The series interrogates privilege and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred. Brian Tee, who plays Margaret’s husband Clarke and Jack Huston, who plays Hilary’s husband David also star in the series.
Lulu Wang serves as a creator, director and writer for Expats. Wang also executive produces the series with Daniele Melia for Local Time. Nicole Kidman serves as an executive producer for the series with Per Saari for Blossom Films, along with Alice Bell, who was the first writer onboarded to the series.
Theresa Park for Per Capita Productions and Stan Wlodkowski also serve as executive producers. Vera Miao, Gursimran Sandhu, and author Janice Y. K. Lee served as writers on Expats with Bell and Wang.
Expats will premiere in early 2024 on Prime Video.
