Apple TV+ May 2024 - Dark Matter


Dark Matter (Sci-Fi Series)
Sci-fi thriller “Dark Matter” stars Joel Edgerton alongside Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly, Alice Braga, Jimmi Simpson, Dayo Okeniyi, and Oakes Fegley. Based on the blockbuster book by New York Times bestselling author Blake Crouch, the new nine-episode Apple Original series will premiere globally on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes on May 8, followed by one new episode every Wednesday through June 26, 2024.

Hailed as one of the best sci-fi novels of the decade, “Dark Matter” is a story about the road not taken. The series follows Jason Dessen (played by Edgerton), a physicist, professor, and family man who — one night, while walking home on the streets of Chicago — is abducted into an alternate version of his life.

Dark Matter

Wonder quickly turns into a nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the mind-bending landscape of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.

Crouch serves as creator, executive producer, showrunner, and writer alongside executive producers Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl for Matt Tolmach Productions. Edgerton also serves as executive producer. “Dark Matter” is produced for Apple TV+ by Sony Pictures Television.

Hollywood Con Queen

Hollywood Con Queen (Documentary Series)
The three-part documentary series “Hollywood Con Queen” comes from Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Chris Smith (“Tiger King,” “Fyre,” “100 Foot Wave”). Based on the original reporting of investigative journalist Scott Johnson and his book published by Harper Collins, “Hollywood Con Queen: The Hunt for an Evil Genius,” “Hollywood Con Queen” explores the shocking story behind one of Hollywood’s biggest scams. The series is set to debut globally on Apple TV+ on May 8, 2024.

A mysterious figure dubbed the ‘Con Queen’ impersonates the industry’s most powerful women, luring unsuspecting victims to Indonesia with the promise of a life-changing career opportunity. The Con Queen’s marks exhaust their personal finances in pursuit of a big break while being exploited in a perverse psychological game spanning the globe.

Hollywood Con Queen

The scam eventually drew the attention of veteran investigative journalist Johnson of The Hollywood Reporter and dedicated private investigator Nicole Kotsianas, formerly of K2 Integrity, who set out to find the truth only to discover a story more strange than they could have imagined.

“Hollywood Con Queen” is produced by Library Films for Apple TV+. Smith is the director and executive producer, Ben Anderson is the executive producer, and Johnson is the consulting producer.

“The Big Cigar” is a limited series led by André Holland, who stars alongside Alessandro Nivola, Tiffany Boone, P. J. Byrne, Marc Menchaca, Moses Ingram, Rebecca Dalton, Olli Haaskivi, Jordane Christie and Glynn Turman. “The Big Cigar” makes its global debut on May 17 with the first two episodes, followed by new episodes every Friday through June 14.

Based on the magazine article by Joshuah Bearman (“Argo”), who also serves as executive producer, “The Big Cigar” tells the incredible true story of the Hollywood revolution meeting the social revolution. It’s a wild caper about Black Panther founder Huey P. Newton escaping from the FBI to Cuba with the assistance of famed producer Bert Schneider in an impossibly elaborate plan — involving a fake movie production — that goes wrong every way it possibly can.

The Big Cigar

NAACP Image Award winner Janine Sherman Barrois (“Claws,” “Self Made”) is the showrunner of “The Big Cigar.” Executive producer Jim Hecht (“Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty”) penned the show’s first episode.
