The Michel Imperioli Starring The White Lotus Got Favorable Reviews In The First Season
The reviews have been favorable for The White Lotus, which has been seen as a series where much happens and comes out in the open. It tends to seduce the viewer. The guests at the resort are either angry or unhappy, offended or confused. White has managed to bring the whole storyline together without it feeling contrived or melodramatic.
The White Lotus manages to achieve what proves to be the pitfall of many TV series and should be considered a colossal effort.
Michael Imperioli has a project of his own at HBO in collaboration with Alec Berg as writer-producer. It will be based on Michael Imperioli’s personal experience as a practicing Buddhist.
