I can’t think of another show with a cast that I uniformly love as much as I love the cast of Loot. Maya Rudolph. Joel Kim Booster. Michaela Jaé Rodriguez. Ron Funches. Nat Faxon. It doesn’t get much better than that. Thankfully, Loot is more than worthy of this incredible cast. It tells the story of a recently divorced billionaire who decides to get more involved with the philanthropic foundation that bears her name. I don’t know if Maya Rudolph’s character is specifically based on MacKenzie Scott, but the parallels are certainly there. Right down to the asshole ex-husband whose company logo looks like a dick.
But back to Loot. This show is hilarious, filled with wonderful characters and performances, and it is sharply on point with its social commentary. I burned through the first season in a matter of days, and now I’m very impatiently waiting for season two. Absolutely love this show.
