Jack’s sales team – Shirley (Haneefah Wood), Herb (Dewshane Williams) and Eddie (Hank Azaria), plus newcomer Joey (Nicholas Podany) – struggle to sell dreams and opportunities that Brightside Lunar Residences stands for, but they all have different motivations that lurk beneath the surface. The writing on Hello tomorrow! fleshes out each character in ways that are both broad and nuanced. For example, Eddie is a gambling addict who knows he should pay off his dangerously mounting debts, but he struggles to do the right thing (and too easy to do the wrong thing). He is extremely competitive, especially when dealing with his highly coiled business rival, Herb. He also has a spicy romantic relationship with Shirley, which makes no sense; on paper they are an obvious mismatch, but somehow chemistry works.
We get a feel for all the supporting players very quickly, though the naive Joey – who joins the team at Jack’s insistence, not realizing his new boss is his long-lost father – feels like the character whose arc will change the most during the season. progress. That said, we meet more key characters along the way, like Myrtle (Alison Pill), a frustrated housewife who turns her life upside down to pursue a new, lunar one… with rage to spare when Brightside doesn’t immediately deliver. The show’s fast pace (each episode is around 30 minutes long) seems just right to keep up with all the drama that’s unfolding.
