Justin Theroux’s new Apple TV+ series has a premiere date! The Mosquito Coast, based on the best-selling novel by his uncle Paul Theroux, will debut its first two episodes Friday, April 30, the streaming service announced Friday during the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
The series, which also stars Melissa George, Logan Polish and Gabriel Bateman, follows a radical idealist and brilliant inventor, Allie Fox (Justin), who uproots his family for Mexico when they suddenly find themselves on the run from the U.S. government.
In addition to announcing the show’s premiere date, Apple TV+ debuted the first look at the gripping series.
“We have a problem,” Justin says in the trailer. “You know the kind of problem that you think, ‘OK, first glance, that looks pretty bad? If I just sit down and think about it, I might be able to figure a way out of it’? We don’t have that kind of problem. This is going to be an adventure.”
Watch the official trailer for Mosquito Coast below.
The seven-episode series is executive produced by Paul, Justin and creator Neil Cross, alongside Rupert Wyatt, who also directs the first two episodes. Edward L. McDonnell will also executive produce, along with Bob Bookman, Alan Gasmer and Peter Jaysen of Veritas Entertainment Group.
The Mosquito Coast premieres April 30 on Apple TV+ on April 30. New episodes will drop every Friday.
