"Jay and Mark Duplass are two of the most inventive talents in TV today," noted Bloys. "We're excited to see what they do with this unique concept."

"We've all seen stories set in seedy motels and high-class international resorts, but for years we've been fascinated by the funny, weird, sad, scary, absurd things going down in that corporate chain hotel near the airport. That's what Room 104 is after... finding some magic in the seemingly mundane," added Jay and Mark Duplass.
