From executive producer Oliver Stone comes 1993’s sexy and surreal five-part mini-series Wild Palms, written by Bruce Wagner and set in a neo-noir Los Angeles of the future. It originally aired on ABC-TV.

Harry Wyckoff (James Belushi, Thief) is about to become a player in a dark and terrifying battle where everything is at stake and no one is who they seem. Directed by the impressive quartet of Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Keith Gordon (Dressed to Kill), Peter Hewitt (Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey) and Phil Joanou (State of Grace), Wild Palms is sci-fi saga of greed, treason and virtual reality wherein a multi-national corporation attempts to take over American while small pockets of resistance hold out against rampant—and terrifying!—technology. It’s drama, it’surrealism, it’s mystery….it’s Wild Palms!

Shot by Phedon Papamichael (Ford v Ferrari) and scored by Ryuichi Sakamoto (The Revenant), the cast of Wild Palms includes Dana Delany (TV’s Desperate Housewives), Robert Loggia (Scarface), Kim Cattrall (The Ghost Writer), Angie Dickinson (Dressed to Kill), Bebe Neuwirth (Malice), David Warner (Cross of Iron), Bob Gunton (The Lincoln Lawyer), Robert Morse (TV’s Mad Men) and Brad Dourif (Color of Night).
