Apple TV+ has revealed the trailer for Losing Alice, the eight-episode psychological thriller series releasing on January 22.
Losing Alice is a thrilling cinematic journey that uses flashbacks and flash-forwards in a satisfyingly complex narrative that takes the viewer through the conscious and subconscious of its protagonist’s mind.
The series follows Alice (played by Ayelet Zurer), a 48-year-old female film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family.
After a brief encounter on the train, she becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity in order to achieve power, relevance and success.
Through the prism of this female Faust, the series explores issues such as jealousy, guilt, fear of aging, and the complex relationships women have among themselves and each other. But above all, Losing Alice is a love letter for the still-too-rare female director.
Written, directed and created by Sigal Avin, the series stars Ayelet Zurer, Lihi Koronowski, Shai Avivi, Gal Toren, Yossi Marshak, and Chelli Goldenberg.
Losing Alice comes from Israel’s Dori Media productions in association with HOT. The executive producers include Sigal Avin, Yoni Paran, Nadav Palti, and Tami Mozes Borovitz.
Losing Alice will join an expanding list of premium Apple Originals from all over the world, including Tehran, a thrilling new original series from Israel created by Fauda writer Moshe Zonder; and Masters of the Air, a new limited drama series from Apple Studios, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s Playtone.
Also coming to the service are Slow Horses, an international espionage thriller starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman; and Shantaram, based on Gregory David Robert’s best-selling novel and starring Charlie Hunnam.
Apple TV+ will also have Pachinko, a drama series based on The New York Times best-selling acclaimed novel by Min Jin Lee, and written and executive produced by Soo Hugh; and Suspicion, a high-paced thriller starring Uma Thurman and based on the award-winning Israeli series False Flag.
