While the world and its mother waits with fingers crossed that the rumors of a reboot of The Office are true, one member of that classic show's writing team is back with an altogether very different TV proposition.
Read on to find out how to stream The Premise and watch the new comedy series online from anywhere in the world.
This drama/comedy anthology of standalone stories tackles the big issues of the times we live in, in a somewhat off-kilter manner not unlike Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror.
From social media addiction to race relations, gun control, and celebrity culture, episode titles such as "Social Justice Sex Tape" give an insight into the satirical tone of how the show deals with its weighty subject matters.
Each character-driven episode boasts a strong cast, from rising stars like Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hansen), and Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), to beloved veterans like Ed Asner, George Wallace, and Beau Bridges.
It's set up to be one of the most talked-about shows of the autumn. Don't miss a moment, by reading our guide on how to stream The Premise no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
The Premise - Where and when?

Watch The Premise online from outside your country
We have details for how you can watch the show further down in this guide. If you're intent on watching The Premise, but find yourself away from home then you'll run into problems when trying to stream your domestic coverage online from abroad as it's likely to be geo-blocked.
That's where a VPN (Virtual Private Network) can be a lifesaver. They allow you to virtually change the ISP of your laptop, tablet or mobile to one that's back in your home country, letting you watch as if you were back there.
VPN's are incredibly easy to use and have the added benefit of giving you a further layer of security when surfing the web. There are lots of options, and we recommend ExpressVPN as our #1 pick due to its speed, security and ease of use. It can be used on a vast array of operating systems and devices (e.g. iOS, Android, Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, Roku, games consoles, etc).

Can I stream The Premise in the UK?
