Apple has today announced that it is co-producing a neo-noir psychological thriller ‘Losing Alice’ in partnership with Israel’s Dori Media productions, which will make its worldwide debut later this year exclusively on Apple TV+.
Set to join Apple’s slate of sweeping international original series, Losing Alice has been created, written, and director by Sigal Avin. The first season of the series consists of 8 episodes and follows Alice (played by Ayelet Zurer), a 48-year-old female film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family.
After a brief encounter on the train, Alice becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity in order to achieve power, relevance, and success.
“Losing Alice” is a thrilling cinematic journey that uses flashbacks and flash-forwards in a satisfyingly complex narrative that takes the viewer through the conscious and subconscious of its protagonist’s mind.
Through the prism of this female Faust, the series explores issues such as jealousy, guilt, fear of aging, and the complex relationships women have among themselves and each other. But above all, “Losing Alice” is a love letter for the still-too-rare female director.
Apple has not yet announced the official air date of Losing Alice on Apple TV+.
