Apple TV+ has great news for Maya Rudolph and ‘Loot’ fans
If you’re a fan of the new Apple TV+ comedy series “Loot,” Apple has some good news for you.
The company has announced that the series will be returning for a second season. The news comes soon after the first season’s premiere and Animal Pictures’ first-look deal with Apple. Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+, said that the series “has captured the hearts of global audiences.”
“Thanks to Maya, Alan, Matt, and the entire incredibly talented “Loot” cast and creative team who have created a show filled with captivating and endearing characters, and hilarious and heartwarming moments throughout each episode. This show has captured the hearts of global audiences, and we can’t wait for season two.”
The new series, which stars and is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Maya Rudolph, follows the story of a billionaire who discovers giving back is better than hoarding all of that money.
In “Loot,” billionaire Molly Novak (Rudolph) has a dream life, complete with private jets, a sprawling mansion and a gigayacht — anything her heart desires. But when her husband of 20 years betrays her, she spirals publicly, becoming fuel for tabloid fodder. She’s reaching rock bottom when she learns, to her surprise, that she has a charity foundation run by the no-nonsense Sofia Salinas (Rodriguez), who pleads with Molly to stop generating bad press. With her devoted assistant Nicholas (Kim Booster) by her side, and with the help of Sofia and team — including mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Faxon) and her optimistic, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Funches) — Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Giving back to others might be what she needs to get back to herself.
