André Benjamin Joins the Cast of AMC’s Dispatches From Elsewhere

-

AMC has cast André Benjamin (High Life), aka André 3000, in the original anthology series Dispatches From Elsewhere. Alethea Jones has also signed on to executive produce and direct several episodes of the series, which begins production this week in Philadelphia, PA.

Created by and starring Jason Segel, who will also direct the pilot, Dispatches From Elsewhere 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 executive produces with Scott Rudin, showrunner Mark Friedman, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, Jeff Freilich and Jones. An AMC Studios production, the hour-long series will include viewer engagement elements across multiple media platforms.

“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,” David Madden, president of original programming for AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios, said previously. “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.”

Said Segel, “I am thrilled to be telling this story at AMC. I truly could not imagine a better team and a more perfect home for this material.”




AMC Studios opened a writers’ room last year for Dispatches From Elsewhere under their scripts-to-series development model. AMC has successfully utilized this model for series such as Dietland, Lodge 49 and the upcoming NOS4A2.

Dispatches From Elsewhere is an AMC Studios production.
