In HBO Max’s first official trailer for The Flight Attendant, Kaley Cuoco learns that joining the Mile High Club comes at a lofty mental price. In the upcoming series, Cuoco stars as flight attendant Cassandra Bowden, who wakes in her hotel room in Dubai, hungover from the night before and with a dead body lying next to her. Afraid to call the police, she continues her morning as if nothing happened, joining the other flight attendants and pilots traveling to the airport. In New York, she is met by FBI agents who question her about her recent layover in Dubai. Still unable to piece the night together, she begins to wonder if she could be the killer.
This dark and comedic tale is based on the novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian and co-stars Michiel Huisman, Rosie Perez, Zosia Mamet, Michelle Matthews, and Nolan Gerard Funk. In addition to her starring role, Cuoco will also executive produce the eight-part limited series with Greg Berlanti, Steve Yockey, Marcie Ulin, Meredith Lavender, and Sarah Schechter. Susanna Fogel, who wrote the 2019 laugh-out-loud comedy, Booksmart, will direct and executive produce the first two episodes.
The first three episodes of The Flight Attendant are prepared to liftoff on Thursday, November 26, with the next two episodes taking to the sky on December 3rd. Two more will cruise the clouds on December 10th, with the final episode landing on December 17th.
Recently it was announced that Cuoco’s other series, Harley Quinn, has been renewed for a third season on HBO Max.
From where I’m standing, it looks as if Cuoco has done well for herself since playing Penny on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory sitcom. In addition to The Flight Attendant, she’s also set to star alongside Woody Harrelson and Kevin Hart in THE MAN FROM TORONTO for director Patrick Hughes. In the upcoming film, the world’s deadliest assassin and New York’s biggest screw-up are mistaken for each other at an Airbnb rental.
