With exactly one week under its new streaming service’s belt, Apple is continuing to expand their library of content. One of those future properties is a thriller featuring two recognizable faces in front of and behind the camera.
Severance, the latest series to come out of Endeavor Content (See, soon-to-be-released Truth Be Told), will star Adam Scott (Big Little Lies, Parks And Recreation) and be executive produced and directed by Ben Stiller (Escape At Dannemora). The Hollywood Reporter describes the series as follows:
Severance is a workplace thriller that is set at Lumen Industries, a company looking to take work-life balance to a new level. Scott will star as Mark, an employee with a dark past trying to put himself back together.
The series was created by Dan Erickson (Treasure Trouble, A Sibling Mystery) and has been in development for months. Erickson will be writing the entire series and executive produce alongside Chris Black (Outcast, Desperate Housewives). Stiller will also be executive producing and directing each episode—marking his latest TV project since his recent wins for his work on Escape From Dannemora. Scott will also be credited as a producer for the series.
No release date has been set yet for the series. Severance is one of many projects Apple is spending billions on to produce quality content for their customers. Apple launched AppleTV+ last Friday, November 1st, with a price tag of $5 a month. It was the first of the new streaming competitors to step into the ring with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.
