Jakarta. HBO's new original series "Room 104" will make its Indonesian debut exclusively on Cinemax in July at the same time as it debuts in the United States.

The series, produced by the Duplass Brothers, will run for 12 episodes in its first season and its first episode will air on Saturday, July 29, at 10.30 a.m., with a same-day encore at 9 p.m.

Featuring a star-studded cast, including James Van Der Beek, Philip Baker Hall, Nat Wolff and Amy Landecker, the half-hour comedy series will tell a different story in each episode and feature an assortment of characters. Each episode will be set inside a room in a typical American roadside motel.

Creators Mark and Jay Duplass told Refinery29 the series will focus on digging into the personal stories of the people who come to stay in the motel's Room 104.

"We’ve all seen stories set in seedy motels or international resorts for the rich, but this time we're more fascinated by the funny, weird, sad, scary and absurd things going down in that corporate chain hotel near the airport," Duplass said.

A select host of writers and directors were responsible for Room 104's first season, including upcoming Captain Marvel directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and South Korean indie filmmaker So Yong Kim.

The show is created and executive produced by Mark and Jay Duplass, their third project with the network after Togetherness and Animals.

Room 104 will also be available on HBO Go and HBO Demand.
