The trailer shows Jack and his fellow salesmen going around selling homes on the moon. The retrofuturistic world around them looks like something straight out of “Pleasantville,” with pastel colors, big boat-like cars, and lots of cocktail swing dresses. The ensemble cast, which includes Alison Pill, Haneefah Wood, Dewshane Williams, Nicholas Podany, Matthew Maher, Hank Azaria, and Jacki Weaver all look stunning in their tailored suits and pleated skirts, living a life of luxury with the help of all manner of robotic helpers. The series was co-created by Amit Bhalla and Lucas Jansen and will center around Jack’s life as he becomes lost in his own idealistic vision of the future.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Set in a retro-future world, “Hello Tomorrow!” centers around a group of traveling salesmen hawking lunar timeshares. Crudup stars as Jack, a salesman of great talent and ambition, whose unshakeable faith in a brighter tomorrow inspires his coworkers, revitalizes his desperate customers, but threatens to leave him dangerously lost in the very dream that sustains him.
“Hello Tomorrow!” looks gorgeous, like they spared no expense in making the retro-futuristic world look as shiny and pretty as possible, but it’s also kind of strange just how much it reminds me of the beginning of “Fallout 4.” It’s genuinely a little eerie.
