The ten-hour series is centered around four ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is. This diverse foursome is brought together by chance – or perhaps it’s by design – when they stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. As they begin to accept the mysterious “Dispatches from Elsewhere” challenges, they come to find that the mystery winds deeper than they imagined, and their eyes are opened to a world of possibility and magic.

Dispatches from Elsewhere is an upcoming American anthology television series created by and starring Jason Segel that is set to premiere on AMC in March 1, 2020.
Dispatches from Elsewhere, being filmed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, follows “a group of ordinary people who stumble onto a puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life. They will come to find that the mystery winds far deeper than they ever imagined.”
On July 28, 2018, it was announced that AMC had given the production a series order. The series was created by Jason Segel who is also set to direct the pilot and executive produce alongside Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, and Garrett Basch. Production companies involved with the series are slated to include AMC Studios. The series is based off original stories and content created by Nonchalance for a series known as Games of Nonchalance, which was produced in San Francisco and Oakland, California during 2010. The title of the show comes from an element of Act 2 which featured a pirate radio station that broadcast in Dolores Park, in the Mission District of San Francisco.
