Unfortunately, The Big Door Prize is not streaming on Netflix. The comedy is an Apple Original series, which means it is streaming on Apple TV+ exclusively. The 10-episode, half-hour comedy premiered with the first three episodes on Wednesday, March 29, 2023. Going forward, one new installment will be released weekly until the final on May 17, 2023.

The show takes us to the small town of Deerfield and is centered around Dusty Hubbard (O’Dowd). When a mysterious machine appears in the town’s general store, the residents start to reevaluate their life choices and ambitions, per the synopsis. That’s because this piece of technology seemingly reveals everyone’s “true life potential.”

Dusty is happy with his life as a family man and high school teacher but starts to question whether he really is content when everyone around him does the same. Plus, his wife Cass (Dennis) believes there’s something more out there for her. The arrival of the Morpho machine in Deerfield changes the community “in pursuit of a better future.”

The Big Door Prize is now streaming on Apple TV+. New episodes are released weekly on Wednesdays.
