AppleTV+ Slots Premiere Date for New Comedy 'The Big Door Prize' Starring Chris O'Dowd

AppleTV+ has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original comedy series The Big Door Prize starring Chris O'Dowd.

The 10-episode first season will premiere on Wednesday, March 29 with its first three episodes. New episodes will then be released weekly every Wednesday until the season finale on May 17.

A small town is forever changed when a mysterious machine appears in the general store, promising to reveal each resident's true life potential. Dusty Hubbard (O'Dowd), a seemingly content, cheerful family man and high school teacher, watches everyone around him reevaluate their life choices and ambitions - based on the machine's printouts - and is forced to question whether he is truly as happy as he once thought. While he remains skeptical of the machine, his wife, Cass, indulges in the dream that there's something bigger out there for her. Like many of Deerfield's residents, the couple has lived a relatively safe, uncomplicated life, until the arrival of the Morpho machine. However, all of that is about to change when the community is forced to reconcile with their unfulfilled achievements in pursuit of a better future.

In addition to O'Dowd, the comedy stars Gabrielle Dennis, Ally Maki, Josh Segarra, Damon Gupton, Crystal Fox, Djouliet Amara and Sammy Fourlas.

David West Read developed the comedy based on the novel by M.O. Walsh. He executive produces with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Miky Lee, Young Kyu Kim, Hyun Park, Bill Bost and Sarah Walker. Skydance Television and CJ ENM/Studio Dragon produce.
