Jason Segel's Says His New Show 'Dispatches from Elsewhere' Is Like Magic As An Act Of Defiance!

Jason Segel wants to bring some magic into your life!

While making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (February 26), the 40-year-old writer-director-actor opened up about what inspired his new show, Dispatches from Elsewhere, which is set to premiere on March 1 at 10/9c on AMC.

“It’s a real thing that happened in San Fransisco in like the early 2000′s. I think we all have this feeling, especially right now, that there should be more or that we’re deserving of a happier feeling,” Jason explained. “This group of adults got together and instead of beating each other up over it they decided to make magic in the secrecy of night.”

Jason‘s upcoming drama is based on the true story of an underground network of artists operating in San Francisco, who were chronicled in the 2013 documentary The Institute — and to get things started, Segel had to reach out to the mysterious founder of the movement.

“It’s like magic as an act of defiance,” Jason continued. “It’s a show about saying that I’m refuse to accept this thing that’s coming at me, I’m going to make the world beautiful. It’s about love and community.”

This is Jason Segel‘s first new project since The Friend, which he premiered during the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival back in September.
