First Look: Julianne Moore, Clive Owen in ‘Lisey’s Story,’ set for June debut on Apple TV+
Apple today revealed that Lisey’s Story, the highly anticipated limited series based on the best-selling novel and adapted and written by author Stephen King himself, will make its global debut on Friday, June 4, 2021 exclusively on Apple TV+. Featuring a star-studded cast led by Academy Award-winner Julianne Moore and Academy Award-nominee Clive Owen, the eight-episode Apple Original series will premiere with the first two episodes, followed by new episodes every Friday.
Lisey’s Story is a deeply personal, pensive thriller that follows Lisey Landon (played by Academy Award winner Julianne Moore) two years after the death of her husband, famous novelist Scott Landon (played by Academy Award nominee Clive Owen, who starred with Moore in Children of Men). A series of unsettling events causes Lisey to face memories of her marriage to Scott that she has deliberately blocked out of her mind. Academy Award nominee Joan Allen, Academy Award nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh, Dane DeHaan, Emmy Award winner Ron Cephas Jones and Sung Kang star alongside Moore and Owen.
Directed by Pablo Larraín, Lisey’s Story hails from J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. In a rare step, every episode of the series was personally written by Stephen King. King, Moore, and Larraín executive produce alongside Abrams, Ben Stephenson and Juan de Dios Larraín.
