You've probably walked into a room and forgotten why you were going in there. Now, imagine losing a huge chunk of time and having no memory of what happened. That's just part of the premise of a new Apple TV+ series that's coming this July.
Surface comes from Veronica West (High Fidelity), and stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Morning Show). Raw will play a woman named Sophie: "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."
Additional cast members include 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”). West and Raw both also serve as executive producers for the series. They are joined by Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter executive produce on behalf of Hello Sunshine. Sam Miller (I May Destroy You), who also directed the first four episodes, rounds out the list of executive producers. Additional episodes were directed by Kevin Sullivan, Jennifer Morrison and Tucker Gates.
This is just the latest partnership between Apple TV and Hello Sunshine. Considering it all started with the award winning The Morning Show, I would say it's been a successful team-up. Surface premieres it's first three episodes on July 29th. Does this mean a possible appearance at Comic-Con for Apple TV this year? Fingers crossed for that. We'll keep you posted.
