Kristen Wiig headlines Apple TV+ comedy drama Palm Royale, and here’s the trailer for the upcoming show.

Kristen Wiig made her name as one of the cast members of Saturday Night Live, alongside the likes of Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Bill Hader.

Since then, she found huge success as a writer, scripting and starring in 2012’s Bridesmaids and 2021’s Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar with Annie Mumolo. She has also starred in several films she hasn’t written, including Girl Most Likely and Craig Johnson’s wonderful 2014 film The Skeleton Twins, in which she stars alongside Hader.

She now headlines Apple TV+ comedy drama Palm Royale. The synopsis reads as follows:

Palm Royale is a true underdog story that follows Maxine Simmons (Kristen Wiig) as she endeavours to break into Palm Beach high society. As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, “Palm Royale” asks the same question that still baffles us today: “How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to get what someone else has?” Set during the powder keg year of 1969, Palm Royale is a testament to every outsider fighting for their chance to truly belong.

The cast also includes Josh Lucas, Leslie Bibb, Amber Chardae Robinson, Mindy Cohn, Julia Duffy, Kaia Gerber, with Laura Dern, Allison Janney, Carol Burnett and Bruce Dern.

The series was created and written by Abe Sylvia, who previously wrote episodes of Nurse Jackie, The Affair, and George and Tammy, alongside Sheri Holman, Kelly Hutchinson, Sharr White, Celeste Hughey, Becky Mode, Emma Rathbone, and Logan Faust, adapted from the novel Mr. & Mrs. American Pie by Juliet McDaniel. Episodes were directed by Sylvia, Tate Taylor, Claire Scanlon and Stephanie Laing.

Palm Royale will stream on Apple TV+ from 20th March 2024.
