Paul Rudd, who consistently proves that he is willing to do things outside the box, is helming a new series on Audible.
The series, Escape from Virtual Island, is written by John Lutz (30 Rock and Saturday Night Live) and costars Amber Ruffin (Late Night with Seth Meyers), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and Paula Pell (A.P. Bio and 30 Rock). So we’ve definitely got a TGS reunion on our hands!!
It is described in the statement as follows. “Derek Ambrose (Rudd) runs an island resort in 2038 where the wealthy come to live out their wildest fantasies in virtual reality. With the help of his assistant Beasley (McBrayer), lead computer scientist Faith (Ruffin), and head of security Ramona (Pell), the island has been running smoothly since Derek inherited it from his mother. When a high-profile guest suddenly goes missing inside a computer simulation, Derek, Faith, Beasley, and Ramona form a search party to retrieve him. Bouncing between VR environments, the team soon realizes that the computer has become self-aware and is preventing them from escaping back to the real world.”
This audio series also features all star cameos from the likes of Scott Adsit, Jane Krakowski, Seth Meyers, Jason Sudekis, Olivia Wilde, Kenan Thompson, and Henry Winkler.
It premieres on Audible on April 2nd. And whatever this thing is, it sure has got our attention with a cast like that!
