every week on hbo there will be four 15 minute uber tales shown
every week it will be four different actors
every week it will be directed by a different director
some of the segments will be traditional television: guy picks up a passenger, they hit it off, theres laughs and then they drop them off.
but some of the segments will be
what does the uber guy do during a break
why did he take a break
why does he stop his break
a 15 minute drive where no one talks
robert de niro is the uber driver
two girls get in the back
all they do is talk to each other
de niro doesnt talk
but we do see his facial expressions now and then
as he listens to their stories
the beauty with this format is you never know who they will pick up
and you never know who’s gonna drive.
as the weeks go on, some of the same drivers are featured
will de niro say anything this week?
hey arent those the same chatty girls as two weeks ago?
but this time mike tyson is the driver
or al gore
or pee wee herman
maybe pee wee is the driver and some old lady wants to talk about mike brown.
or some saudi guy wants to talk about how he just smoked weed yesterday for the first time.
or prince wants to play a 15 minute guitar solo
because he has a battery operated amp he just bought
and wants to know how good it sounds in a car
maybe some great actress wants to show how great she is
and delivers a 10 minute soliloquy
and when we finally see the driver
it’s stephen hawking
or hologram tupac
who just says
and then they run into a bus.
i think thats what the show is.
