Maya Rudolph plays Molly Novak, the shallow and rejected wife of billionaire John Novak (Adam Scott, Severence) in Apple TV Plus’ new workplace comedy, Loot, which Rudolph also executive produces.
When the series starts, Molly has everything she could dream of and more – private jets, a sprawling mansion and a gigayacht. But all of that crumbles when she learns that John has been cheating on her with a much younger woman. Now she’s left to figure out what to do with the rest of her life, and is surprised to learn that a charity foundation exists in her name.
Molly gets pulled into that charity when the executive director Sofia Salinas (Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Pose) calls her to request that quit generating bad press with her very public spinout. With her devoted assistant Nicholas (Joel Kim Booster) by her side, and with the help of Sofia and team — including mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Nat Faxon) and her optimistic, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Ron Funches) — Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Giving back to others might be what she needs to get back to herself.
Loot is created, written and executive produced by Alan Yang (Little America, Master of None, Parks and Recreation) and Matt Hubbard (30 Rock, Forever). Rudolph executive produces, along with Natasha Lyonne and Danielle Renfrew Behrens, through their Animal Pictures banner. Dave Becky of 3 Arts also serves as executive producer. Loot is produced for Apple by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Loot’s first three episodes debut Friday, June 24 with one new episode each week after that.
