Apple TV+ Shares Trailer for Stephen King's Thriller Series 'Lisey's Story'

Apple today shared the official trailer for "Lisey's Story," a thriller series based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King.


Hailing from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, the original series follows Lisey Landon (played by Julianne Moore) two years after the death of her husband, famous novelist Scott Landon (played by Clive Owen). A series of unsettling events causes Lisey to face memories of her marriage to Scott that she has deliberately blocked out of her mind, according to Apple.

All eight episodes of "Lisey's Story" were personally written by King, with Pablo Larraín directing. The series premieres on Apple TV+ on June 4.

No one tell this guy what King thinks of people like him. Sounds like it’ll kill him.

Looks interesting. Love Clive Owen.
Agree x 2. Also feel Clive is an underrated / under appreciated actor. Julianne is virtually bullet proof. Plus King’s writing, JJ is signed on, like that it’s a series vs a feature film… I see nothing but good here.

Looks promising, although it has to be said, King adaptations are not universally great by any stretch of the imagination.

This looks freaking incredible. The best part is that Stephen King is INCREDIBLY hands on on this series. He wrote every single episode apparently. Wow.
