Musician, comedian and producer Jack Dishel has released the second episode of his digital series :DRYVRS, guest starring actress Rosanna Arquette and music legend Tom Petty, with a special appearance from Dhani Harrison.
The episode, titled, DRYVRS Ep. 2 "Bob's Direction Home," debuted yesterday at the Tribeca Film Festival's N.O.W. (New Online Work) program, and was co-directed by Jack Dishel and Kerry Harris and produced by Dishel, Harris and David Zonshine. In each episode of the :DRYVRS series, Dishel stars as a car service passenger accompanied by special guest drivers, with upcoming appearances by Jeff Garlin, Darren Criss, Steven Weber, Kevin Pollak and recurring appearances by Macaulay Culkin.
"As I was making the new Only Son album, I took Uber and Lyft to the studio every day," said Dishel. "I kept having these strange conversations with the drivers and would tell everyone at the studio when I got there. We'd all laugh about it and I thought it would be fun to make a series based on those experiences with some of my actor friends. Anytime I tell anyone about the show they say, "Oh, I have the craziest story!"
The episode follows Dishel's character and his eccentric, acid-dropping driver, played by Rosanna Arquette. As the ride commences, Arquette's character begins to hallucinate, believing her passenger to be a young Bob Dylan, and taking him-and the viewer-on a wild, psychedelic ride across Los Angeles. As Dishel's character guides his tripped-out driver to their destination, she drifts into a dreamlike state, imagining an intimate serenade from Dishel's Bob Dylan persona with a special guest appearance from fellow rock legend Tom Petty, as himself. The episode also features a cameo appearance from Dhani Harrison.
