Directed by Emmy Award winner Jay Roach, created by Nancy Fichman, Katie Ford and Jennifer Hoppe, and executive produced by Ben Stiller, the half-hour series will make its global debut on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, followed by new episodes weekly, every Wednesday.

High Desert follows Peggy (Arquette), an on-again-off-again addict who decides to make a new start after the death of her beloved mother, with whom she lived in the small desert town of Yucca Valley, California, and makes a life-changing decision to become a private investigator.

The series is created and written by Nancy Fichman (Nurse Jackie, Damages), Katie Ford (Miss Congeniality) and Jennifer Hoppe (Grace and Frankie, Nurse Jackie, Damages), who also serve as executive producers. High Desert is produced in-house by Apple Studios, Red Hour Films, 3 Arts Entertainment and Delirious Media.

The project reunites Stiller with Arquette following Severance, Escape at Dannemora and the comedy classic Flirting with Disaster, and finds Stiller and Jay Roach back together again since their work on yet another legendary comedy trilogy Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers and Little Fockers.

Next up, Apple TV+ today unveiled the trailer for Silo, the gripping, world-building Apple Original drama based on Hugh Howey’s New York Times bestselling trilogy of dystopian novels, starring an ensemble cast led by Rebecca Ferguson (Dune, Mission: Impossible films), who also serves as an executive producer.

Created by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Graham Yost (Band of Brothers, Justified), who also serves as showrunner, the 10-episode series will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, May 5, 2023 with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday through June 30, 2023.

Silo is the story of the last ten thousand people on earth, their mile-deep home protecting them from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why the silo was built and any who try to find out face fatal consequences.

Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer, who seeks answers about a loved one’s murder and tumbles onto a mystery that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined, leading her to discover that if the lies don’t kill you, the truth will.

Finally, Apple Original Films unveiled the trailer for the highly anticipated film, STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie starring Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan, directed by Academy Award-winner, Davis Guggenheim.

The film, which incorporates documentary, archival and scripted elements, recounts Fox’s extraordinary story in his own words — the improbable tale of an undersized kid from a Canadian army base who rose to the heights of stardom in 1980s Hollywood.

The account of Fox’s public life, full of nostalgic thrills and cinematic gloss, unspools alongside his never-before-seen private journey, including the years that followed his diagnosis, at twenty-nine, with Parkinson’s disease.

Intimate and honest, and produced with unprecedented access to Fox and his family, the film chronicles Fox’s personal and professional triumphs and travails, and explores what happens when an incurable optimist confronts an incurable disease.

With a mix of adventure and romance, comedy and drama, watching the film feels like… well, like a Michael J. Fox movie.
