AMC Orders Anthology 'Dispatches From Elsewhere' Created by and Starring Jason Segel

During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, AMC gave a series order to the anthology series Dispatches From Elsewhere created by and starring Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother). Production will begin in early 2019.

The series is about a group of ordinary people who stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. They will come to find that the mystery winds far deeper than they ever imagined.

Segel will executive produce with Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and Garrett Basch. AMC Studios produces.

"AMC has a proven history of finding shows that rise above, in every sense, and we think Dispatches From Elsewhere will be an incredible addition to that club," said David Madden, President of Original Programming, AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "This is a very special project based on a truly unique premise and peopled by vivid characters, all driven by Jason's wildly creative vision. We're thrilled for audiences to see this bold, witty and enthralling series."
