TV show description:
This TV series is a single-camera ensemble comedy about a diverse group of strangers who are stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. It’s a dangerous new world where they must face many threats — mostly brought on by themselves. No longer plugged into the rest of the world, the group struggles to navigate their makeshift society while also learning to live without modern comforts.
As a freshman, Jess Kato (Ally Maki) fell hard for Todd, the dopest fifth-year senior at Arizona State. Nine years later, Jess is still dating him. Hoping their big international trip may bring on the asking of a certain question, Jess remains a sweet-natured romantic ready to start the next phase of her life.
Arrogant and a bit selfish, Todd Hinkle (Will Greenberg) may finally be ready to settle down now that he’s stuck in a place where she’s officially the best-looking woman available.
Optimistic and excitable, Danny Wallace (Brian Sacca) is the sweetest guy on the island, despite the fact that he almost immediately lies to the others about being a police officer. He cares about the well-being of the other survivors but probably shouldn’t be carrying the only gun on the island when he has no real firearm training.
A sports agent from Los Angeles, Pack Hara (Asif Ali) is the modern man whose skill set has been perfectly honed for our cosmopolitan world — but he has zero survival skills. Though smart and conniving, living without modern comforts starts to chip away at his well-tailored veneer.
A senior-level statistical analysis executive at the Bing search engine, Karen Cushman (Brooke Dillman) has prospered in the world of business with her blunt talk and take-no-prisoners attitude. Her social understanding is a different story.
Brash and complicated, Florence Bittermann (Jessica Lowe) is essentially a walking contradiction — she hates capitalism, but went to a private liberal arts school. She doesn’t trust eggs that aren’t free-range, but she’ll take a hit of acid from a stranger at a music festival.
Smart, capable, and a little neurotic, Doctor Emma Cook (Ginger Gonzaga) thinks of herself as the voice of reason on the island. Having graduated with top marks from Columbia, Emma was all set to start her residency before Florence dragged her on a trip to Thailand.
Despite a lifetime of taking crap from others back in New Zealand, kind Steve Rutherford (Rhys Darby) is happy to finally have some company that doesn’t totally ignore him. He comes to recognize the island as a chance to live the life he’s always dreamed — even if that life means a diet that consists of a lot of wild boar.
As the only surviving member of the Lotus Airlines flight crew, Owen O’Connor (Zach Cregger) is the de facto leader on the island. Having served as a flight attendant for most of his adult life, Owen’s existence as a comfortable loner is shattered by the forced intimacy that comes with depending on strangers for survival. In other words — the island is his nightmare.
