Amazon has announced the premiere date and released the first trailer for its upcoming series “Tales From the Loop.”

The series will have its world premiere at SXSW on March 16 before its April 3 wide release on Amazon. “Tales From the Loop” is adapted from and based on digital paintings by the Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag.

The series stars Rebecca Hall (“Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” “The Town”), Paul Schneider (“Parks and Recreation”), Daniel Zolghadri (“Eighth Grade”), Duncan Joiner (“Waco”) and Jonathan Pryce (“The Two Popes,” “Game of Thrones”).

Here is the official logline from Amazon:

“‘Tales from the Loop’ explores the town and people who live above ‘The Loop,’ a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe – making things possible that were previously relegated only to science fiction. In this fantastical mysterious town, poignant human tales are told that bare universal emotional experiences, while drawing on the intrigue of genre storytelling.”

The series comes from Fox21 Television Studios and Amazon Studios in association with 6th & Idaho and Indio Studio.  Nathaniel Halpern created the series and wrote all eight episodes. He executive produces alongside Mark Romanek, Matt Reeves, Adam Kassan, Rafi Crohn, Mattias Montero, Samantha Taylor Pickett and Adam Berg.
