Coastal Elites is a socially distanced comedic satire that spotlights five characters breaking down and breaking through as they grapple with politics, culture, and the pandemic. Starring Bette Midler (Hello, Dolly!), Kaitlyn Dever (Unbelievable, Booksmart), Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Sarah Paulson (American Crime Story), and Issa Rae (HBO’s Insecure), this special presentation explores our current world of deeply divided politics and the universal pursuit of human connection. When the shutdown forces these distinct and impassioned people with varying points-of-view across the United States to cope in isolation, they react with frustration, hilarity, and introspection. Originally conceived for the Public Theater in New York, Coastal Elites took the leap from the stage to the screen at the beginning of the pandemic and evolved in real-time as the unprecedented events of 2020 unfolded, with filming taking place this summer under quarantine guidelines. Coastal Elites is written by playwright and screenwriter Paul Rudnick; directed by Jay Roach; and executive produced by Paul Rudnick, Jay Roach, Jeffrey Seller, Flody Suarez, Scott Chaloff, and Michelle Graham.
