Tells us the story of people who feel like they don’t belong anywhere, Somebody Somewhere pictures the struggle of trying to fit in the society.
HBO (Righteous Gemstones) and HBO Max never runs out of ideas to create such an exceptional TV show. Now, they come up with a brand new TV series called Somebody Somewhere.
Created and executively produced by Hannah Bos and Paul Thureen, this comedy, drama, coming of age TV show is written by Bos, Thureen, and Breen, and directed by Jay Duplass and Robert Cohen.
As mentioned earlier, Somebody Somewhere pretty much follows the story of people who try to fit in and find their own voice and people who can actually accept them.
A TV show that talks about body positivity and special people who try to find their place in the world, are largely made nowadays, such as Atypical, Orange is the New Black, The Mindy Project, Dietland, and many more. This kind of premise is indeed interesting. It also can bring up the topic as well as eliminate the stereotype that these people used to face in their daily lives.
So when HBO decided to come up with Somebody Somewhere, it apparently has the similar premise with the shows of its kind, but obviously it is still great to have another this kind of show and it will be definitely highly anticipated.
