Apple continues to rack up high profile series for its upcoming Apple TV+ subscription service.
The latest is an eight episode limited series based on Stephen King’s best selling novel Lisey’s Story. In a rare move for Stephen King he will be writing all eight episodes of the TV series for Apple.
The series will star Oscar Award winner Julianne Moore and will be produced by J.J. Abrams through Bad Robot Productions. Julianne Moore, J.J. Abrams and Stephen King will all be executive producers on the series.
Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a twenty-five year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and bools.
Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went–a place that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it’s Lisey’s turn to fact Scott’s demons, Lisey’s turn to go to Boo’ya Moon.
What begins as a widow’s efforts to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King’s most personal and powerful novel, Lisey’s Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.Lisey’s Story – Stephen King
