Expats: first-look at Prime limited series starring Nicole Kidman

Expats is a six-part series based on the novel The Expatriates, and it's premiering at TIFF this September.

Prime Video has just released first-look images for Expats, the six-part limited series based on the internationally best-selling novel The Expatriates, by Janice Y. K. Lee.

The Lulu Wang-directed series stars Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning actor Nicole Kidman, Sarayu Blue (Never Have I EverBlockers), Ji-young Yoo (The Sky is EverywhereSmoking Tigers), Brian Tee (Chicago MedTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows), and Jack Huston (House of GucciFargo).

Expats will have a world premiere screening of its’ feature-length’ penultimate episode at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, before dropping all six episodes on Prime.

Set in Hong Kong in 2014, Expats centers on three American women – Margaret (Nicole Kidman), Hilary (Sarayu Blue), and Mercy (Ji-young Yoo) – whose lives intersect after a sudden family tragedy. Brian Tee plays Margaret’s husband Clarke, and Jack Huston plays Hilary’s husband David.

The series ‘interrogates privilege’ and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred.
