What is ‘The White Lotus’ on HBO about?

Fans of the HBO series Succession and Mare of Easttown enjoy this similar new show, The White Lotus. Director Mike White wanted the new limited HBO series to seem similar to Succession, however, at a more relatable level. The wealthy guests at the resort aren’t billionaires like the Roy family, but they are rich people who still benefit from the class they live in. 

The White Lotus also delves into the lives of the resort staff, including manager Armond (Murray Bartlett) and spa manager Belinda (Natasha Rothwell). They try to put on a constant smile, but within the first few episodes, it’s evident that the stress of running the resort is getting to Armond. Lone traveler Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge) becomes increasingly interested in keeping Belinda for herself. However, she’s not versed in authentic relationships. Instead, she attempts to throw money at the woman, insisting that Belinda might be better off owning her own business rather than behind the resort desk.


‘The White Lotus’: Who Dies During the Vacation? Every Theory so Far

Meanwhile, money and wealth interfere with the newlyweds’ marriage as well. Shane Patton (Jake Lacy) insists that his bride, Rachel (Alexandra Daddario), stop working because her “situation has changed.” She married into a wealthy family, so she should relax. The comments about money don’t sit well with Rachel, who still wants to have a career. 

Plus, there’s an entirely different dynamic between the Mossbacher family — Mark’s (Steve Zahn) insecurities run rampant. His wife, Nicole (Connie Britton), prides herself on being a powerful businesswoman.

The White Lotus airs at the same time every Sunday night through mid-August: 9 p.m. EST on HBO and HBO Max.
