‘High Desert’ Trailer Reveals Patricia Arquette as a Former Drug-Addict Turned PI!! Check It Out!!

Apple TV+ has unveiled the first trailer for High Desert, an upcoming dark comedy series starring Patricia Arquette as a former drug-addicted turned PI. This absurd concept is played for more than laughs, as the new trailer underlines how the series will also dig into complicated family matters.

The trailer takes us to the small desert town of Yucca Valley, California. In this desolate place, Peggy (Arquette) decides to turn a new leaf after her mother’s passing. As the trailer underlines, Peggy’s mother was always there to support her, regardless of her questionable life choices. But now, all Peggy has are judgmental siblings who still haven’t forgiven her for becoming a drug dealer, even though the entire family used the money she got from her illegal affairs.

While the stage is set for a gripping family drama, the High Desert trailer also teases the hysterical situations Peggy will get herself into. While struggling to distance herself from her junkie past, Peggy will still have to deal with people who only want her for her drugs. And her career as a PI will soon get her involved with dangerous people and situations she’s too distracted to notice. Finally, there’s a whole deal of car accidents slowly chipping away at Peggy’s sanity. In short, High Desert promises to deliver a great dark comedy story that still packs an emotional punch.
