First Trailer For Prime Video’s “Expats” Navigates the Intricate Balance Between Blame and Accountability

Prime Video has just debuted the trailer for the six-part limited series “Expats” which interrogates privilege and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred, The series is directed by Lulu Wang and based on Janice Y. K. Lee’s internationally best-selling novel The Expatriates.

Set against the vibrant and tumultuous tapestry of 2014 Hong Kong, Expats centers on three American women – Margaret (Kidman), Hilary (Blue), and Mercy (Yoo) – whose lives intersect after a sudden family tragedy. Tee plays Margaret’s husband Clarke and Huston plays Hilary’s husband David.

Wang serves as a creator, director, and writer for “Expats” and also executive produces the series with Daniele Melia for Local Time.
