Who is in the cast of Palm Royale?
Along with the Oscar-nominated Wiig, the cast includes Oscar and Emmy winners Laura Dern and Allison Janney, Ricky Martin, Josh Lucas, Leslie Bibb, Amber Chardae Robinson, Mindy Cohn, Julia Duffy and Kaia Gerber. Bruce Dern and multiple-award-winning Carol Burnett are special guests.
Loosely based on the novel Mr. and Mrs. American Pie by Juliet McDaniel and produced for Apple TV+ by Apple Studios, Palm Royale is written, executive produced, and showrun by Abe Sylvia for Aunt Sylvia’s Moving Picture Company.
It’s executive produced by Laura Dern and Jayme Lemons for Jaywalker Pictures, Kristen Wiig, Katie O’Connell Marsh, Tate Taylor, and John Norris for Wyolah Films, Sharr White, Sheri Holman, and Boat Rocker. The series is directed by Taylor, Sylvia, Claire Scanlon, and Stephanie Laing.
“As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, Palm Royale asks the same question that still baffles us today: ‘How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to get what someone else has,’” reads the official synopsis. “Set during the powder keg year of 1969, Palm Royale is a testament to every outsider fighting for their chance to truly belong.”
