Note that this show being an anthology will have different characters every week. The topics will surely vary from comedic to dramatic to possibly even tragic and offer the dynamic range of human conditions and situations. Each week you are never sure what you are going to get. Just by the graphic offered we can’t tell much about the size and accommodations of this room. It is described as an “average American motel” room but it doesn’t look like a seedy dive with a coin-operated bed in it. Are you interested in stepping inside this summer?
Again, the story these four walls will tell begins 07.28 on HBO.
