The Mosquito Coast is a new adventure drama series and is set to premiere on Apple TV+ on April 30. Of interest to note, the show is adapted from a 1981 novel of the same name by Justin Theroux’s uncle, Paul Theroux.
The series follows the story of brilliant inventor and radical idealist, Allie Fox, played by Justin Theroux (The Leftovers). When they suddenly find themselves on the run from the U.S. government, Fox uproots his family and heads with them to Mexico.

In the trailer, included below, Dina asks, “Dad, why are you doing this to us? Why is it such a big secret?” Allie replies, “Because we have a problem.” He says. “You know the kind of problem that you think, ‘Okay, first glance, that looks pretty bad?'”
We then see the couple talking, while Margot warns that the kids could get hurt. Allie assures his wife that the children won’t get hurt because they are with them. However, Margot responds that this is what she is worried about.
