‘The White Lotus’ Was Like ‘A Fever Dream-Type TV Camp’, Says Star – Deadline

It sounds too good to be true, but it wasn’t: the actors were pulled from the hell that was the pandemic and fell into a tropical bubble, where they would eventually do The White Lotus for HBO. It would yield an amazing 20 Emmy nominationsincluding one for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series.

“It all feels very surreal,” the star admitted Murray Bartlettwho was joined at Deadline’s Contenders Television: The Nominees awards season event by fellow Emmy nominees Connie Breton, Jennifer Coolidge, Alexandra Daddario, Jacques Lacy, Steve Zahn and Natasha Rothwell. “I mean, it was kind of a surreal experience from start to finish because we were all ripped out of Covid and taken to Hawaii in this kind of fever dream type TV camp, you know? And then, from those kind of humble beginnings to those [nomination]it was very sweet and surreal.

Britton added, “We just had a great time on set. We were in the most beautiful Covid bubble you could imagine. It was weird being in a Covid bubble. But the best thing about it was that we met, we had this beautiful place, and we would crack each other up on set 100% of the time. And, if we had left in time, we would come down and watch the sunset on the beach together. That’s what I remember the most from it all. It was so spectacular. I feel like that kind of everything is blessed in some way.

Set in the tropical resort, the series of Mike White follows the exploits of various guests and employees for a week. He has already been renewed for a second season and Coolidge, who plays Tanya McQuoid, is expected to return. The next installment of the series will follow a different group of vacationers as they book their stay at an Italian White Lotus property and settle temporarily among its inhabitants. Actors joining The White Lotus in season 2 include Aubrey Plaza, Will Sharpe, Sabrina Impacciatore, Theo James and Meghann Fahy (all of whom feature in today’s promo), plus F. Murray Abraham, Adam DiMarco, Tom Hollander, Michael Imperioli, Haley Lu Richardson, Leo Woodall, Beatrice Granno and Simona Tabasco.
