Now airing its first season, the HBO series is an episodic anthology (think Twilight Zone) with a new story, but the same setting (the titular motel room).

The original anthology series "tells tales of the characters who pass through a single room of a typical American chain motel, ranging from comedy to drama to horror". HBO describes "Room 104" as the story of everyday people "striving for connection and meaning each week, with the tone, the characters and the era changing every time". Directors include Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Patrick Brice, Sarah Adina Smith and So Yong Kim, among others.

Get ready for more adventures in Room 104. They previously collaborated on two seasons of Togetherness for HBO.

"Jay and Mark Duplass are gifted storytellers who have brilliantly reinvented the anthology series for the modern era", HBO programming EVP Amy Gravitt said in a statement.

The series comes from the minds of creators and executive producers Jay and Mark Duplass.

"We can't remember the last time we had so much fun making something", said Jay and Mark Duplass. "The format of Room 104 offers endless possibilities and opportunities for new talent to experiment, and I look forward to seeing where the series takes us". "We're excited to go even further down the rabbit hole with this show".

Quite a few actors have already taken a stab at appearing in the anthology series, including Mae Whitman, James Van Der Beek, Nat Wolff, Karan Soni, Hugo Armstrong, Philip Baker Hall, Orlando Jones, Amy Landecker, and Tony Todd.

Now in its 12-episode debut season, which began Friday, July 28 (11:30 p.m. -midnight ET/PT), ROOM 104 tells a story of everyday people striving for connection and meaning each week, with the tone, the characters and the era changing every time.
