Apple TV+ Releases Trailer for Upcoming Psycho-Thriller Series ‘Surface’ [VIDEO]
Apple on Monday released the trailer for Surface, an upcoming psychological thriller series on Apple TV+.
The Apple TV+ original was created and written by Veronica West (High Fidelity), who also serves as executive producer and showrunner. It was produced for Apple TV+ through a partnership between Apple Studios and Hello Sunshine that has several other projects in the works as well.
Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter executive produced the show on behalf of Hello Sunshine.
The synopsis for Surface reads:
Set in high-end San Francisco, “Surface” stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“The Morning Show”), who also executive produces, as Sophie, a woman who has suffered a traumatic head injury that has left her with extreme memory loss, believed to be a result of a suicide attempt.
As Sophie embarks on a quest to put the pieces of her life back together with the help of her husband and friends, she begins to question whether or not the truth she is told is in fact the truth she has lived. Through twists and turns and an unexpected love triangle, this sexy, elevated thriller asks: What if you woke up one day and didn’t know your own secrets? “Surface” is a story of self- discovery which contemplates if we are pre-programmed to become who we are, or if we choose our own identity.
Check out the official trailer for the series below:
Surface will unravel over the course of eight episodes. The first three episodes will drop Friday, July 29, on Apple TV+, followed by one new episode every Friday.
Sam Miller (I May Destroy You) directed four of the series’ eight episodes, including the pilot. Kevin Sullivan, Jennifer Morrison, and Tucker Gates directed the remainder.
Surface also stars Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House), Stephan James (If Beale Street Could Talk), Ari Graynor (I’m Dying Up Here), Academy Award nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies), François Arnaud (I Killed My Mother) and Millie Brady (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).
Apple TV+ also has another psychological thriller series, Black Bird, coming out next month. As Apple continues to expand the breadth of its Apple TV+ programming, the company is also looking to bring sports streaming into the fold.
According to a report from last week, the tech giant is still waiting for a response to its bid for the NFL’s Sunday Ticket package.
