Reviews are in for Coastal Elites on HBO, which premieres September 12. The satire from Paul Rudnick explores, via a series of monologues, how the COVID-19 pandemic and politics affects five individuals.
Filmed entirely in quarantine and directed by Jay Roach, the special presentation stars Tony winner Bette Midler (Hello, Dolly!), Emmy winner Sarah Paulson (American Crime Story), and 2020 Emmy nominees Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Issa Rae (Insecure), and Kaitlyn Dever (Unbelievable).

Rudnick and Roach executive produce along with Tony winner Jeffrey Seller, Flody Suarez, Scott Chaloff, and Michelle Graham.
The project was originally conceived for Off-Broadway's Public Theater.
