Kaley Cuoco's The Flight Attendant is your next binge-worthy obsession. The Big Bang Theory alum joined Ryan Seacrest via Zoom on Thursday, November 19, and shared the juicy, party-filled murder mystery has been a passion project of hers since she came across the the 2018 novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian.
The Flight Attendant, set to premiere on HBO Max on November 26, also stars Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman.
"It's about a flight attendant; she’s a little bit eccentric," Kaley shared with Seacrest. "She has a major drinking problem, but she’s a blast to around … [and] on one of her layovers in Thailand … she goes home with one of her passengers and …wakes up the next morning very hungover and she looks over and he’s dead," Kaley added. "... She has blood on her hands and she’s not only dealing with the world's worst hangover, she has no idea what happened.”
The series, which is giving us some major Dead to Me vibes, was shot in Rome and Thailand, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We went to Thailand and we shot in Rome right before shut down," Kaley added. "[My husband] Carl went with me and … there were a couple places he went and he was like, 'Yeah, I don’t know if you would have loved it,'" she jokingly added when Seacrest asked if they got into any trouble. "... I stayed in the happy spots."
