Amazon’s Prime Video today released the trailer, key art, and release date for The Outlawsan upcoming comedy thriller series created by Etienne Marchand (Office) and Elgin James (Mayans MC).
The trailer introduces us to a group of seven people arrested for several petty crimes, ranging from forging a few signatures on checks to soliciting sex in exchange for money. Due to the non-violent nature of their crimes, the group is ordered to clean up an abandoned community center, putting it back into shape. Unfortunately, the path to an honest life is strewn with obstacles, and the group will soon be tempted by a crime once they find a bag full of money hidden on the ceiling of the abandoned community center. The series follows the misadventures of the group while deciding whether to keep the money to themselves. However, the owners of money are part of organized crime and will hunt down and kill those who dared to steal it.
While the stakes are high in The Outlaws trailer, the series relies heavily on comedy to poke fun at the absurd situation. While the whole group is ready to band together and fight for their lives, they aren’t exactly experienced criminals. In addition, each member of the group has a different social background, which makes it more difficult for them to work together.
