Loot is created, written, and executive produced by Yang and Hubbard. Rudolph executive produces, along with Natasha Lyonne and Behrens, through their Animal Pictures banner. Dave Becky of 3 Arts also serves as executive producer. “Loot” is produced for Apple by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
According to the official press release by Apple TV+, the series Loot follows the story of billionaire Molly Novak (Rudolph) has a dream life, complete with private jets, a sprawling mansion, and a gigayacht — anything her heart desires. But when her husband of 20 years betrays her, she spirals publicly, becoming fuel for tabloid fodder.
She’s reaching rock bottom when she learns, to her surprise, that she has a charity foundation run by the no-nonsense Sofia Salinas (Rodriguez), who pleads with Molly to stop generating bad press.
With her devoted assistant Nicholas (Kim Booster) by her side, and with the help of Sofia and the team — including mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Faxon) and her optimistic, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Funches) — Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Giving back to others might be what she needs to get back to herself.
The main and recurring cast members of the series with their respective character names with full descriptions as highlighted in the official press release by Apple TV+ are mentioned as the following:
Maya Rudolph plays Molly Novak: A happy-go-lucky billionaire wife who has all the things you expect a billionaire to have: a mansion with closets the size of a living room, nice boats that lead to nicer boats, and even a pet llama. However, that all falls apart when Molly discovers that her husband of 20 years is cheating on her with a younger woman. Molly walks away with a modest settlement of $87 billion, but the first trailer still has a scene where she cries while eating candy, which to be fair a lot of people would probably do in that situation. Much to her surprise, Molly finds out that she has a charitable organization so, in an effort to help herself, Molly realizes that she needs to help others. This new journey of self-discovery may also humble her along the way.
Michaela Jaé Rodriguez plays Sofia Salinas: The hard-nosed executive director of Molly’s non-profit, who not-so-surprisingly managed the organization while Molly was doing whatever a billionaire who doesn’t know that they run a non-profit would do. In the first trailer, Sofia tells Molly that “part of me wants to hate you,” probably due to the latter’s oblivious nature, but she then tells her, “you pulled us together, and you made us better.” Even though this sort of dynamic is not new, especially for a show like this, seeing two very talented actresses work together in a fun workplace comedy will surely be a treat.
Joel Kim Booster plays Nicholas: Molly’s assistant who sticks with her even after the divorce.
Nat Faxon plays Arthur: The easygoing accountant at Molly’s foundation.
Ron Funches plays Howard: Sofia’s comparatively more cheerful cousin who also works at the non-profit. He also loves pop culture so expect him to spout a lot of pop culture references throughout the series.
Olivier Martinez plays Jean-Pierre: A charming French billionaire who wants his family’s charitable foundation to team up with Molly’s. Unsurprisingly, romantic tension ensues between the two characters since the first trailer depicts Molly attempting to seduce Jean-Pierre.
Some of the guest cast members of the series include:
Adam Scott as John Novak: Molly’s tech billionaire husband who cheats on her with a younger woman, leading to their divorce.
Dylan Gelula as Hailey: John’s young mistress who brings about the end of his marriage with Molly.
