Prime Video has recently released a trailer and some first-look images for its highly anticipated series, The Consultant. Based on Bentley Little’s 2015 novel of the same name, The Consultant is a workplace thriller with dark humor and vibration that can be only called eerie.
Coming from Tony Basgallop, who has had his fair share of experience in the genre, we can’t expect anything but some actual amazing stuff. Matt Shakman, the three-time Emmy nominee, is also a part of the project as the executive producer. With the trailer, release date, and other details being out, here’s everything we know about it:
What is ‘The Consultant’ all about?
The series is set in a game development firm, CompWare that goes through a merger and a new business consultant joins the office. Regus Patoff is as distinct as his name sounds. The old man with a bowtie is nothing but a nightmare for the employees of CompWare.
His eerie behavior includes invading people’s personal space, putting them in difficult and embarrassing situations, and a lot more. But things will get way out of hand when conspiracies and kidnappings enter the picture.
The Consultant Trailer
The trailer opens with Regus Patoff standing in the middle of the office lobby, followed by sharpening a bunch of pencils in the most creepy manner. The opening sequence itself establishes the kind of vibes we’ll be getting throughout the show and they are not particularly pleasant.
And trust us when we say that things are going to escalate pretty quickly. Don’t move forward until you’ve had a look at the trailer:

As per the tweet from the official Twitter handle of Prime Video, The Consultant will hit the streaming platform on February 24, 2023. So, buckle up and get ready to binge to your heart’s content as the craziest comedy-thriller hits the screens.
