Apple TV+ has released the official Lisey’s Story trailer for the upcoming limited series adaptation of Stephen King’s bestselling romantic horror novel of the same name. The video features Julianne Moore’s Lisey Landon as she remembers repressed memories of her marriage to Clive Owen’s Scott, involving the darkness and secrets that plagued him. The series is scheduled to make its debut on June 4 with the first two episodes, then followed by new episodes every Friday. Check out the video in the player below!
Based on Stephen King’s 2006 novel, Lisey’s Story is a deeply personal, pensive thriller that follows Lisey Landon two years after the death of her husband, famous novelist Scott Landon. A series of unsettling events causes Lisey to face memories of her marriage to Scott that she has deliberately blocked out of her mind.
The series will be led by Oscar winner Julianne Moore and Oscar nominee Clive Owen, reuniting 15 years after 2006’s action-thriller pic Children of Men. Joining them are Joan Allen (Nixon), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Atypical), Dane DeHaan (ZeroZeroZero), Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us), and Sung Kang (Fast & Furious films).
The story was actually inspired by King’s own experience when he was involved in a serious accident in June 1999. The idea for the novel sprang from a sudden realization he had when he came home from the hospital and saw that all of his belongings are in boxes. Because of that, he saw a vision of what his studio would look like after his death.
Lisey’s Story is executive produced and directed by Pablo Larraín, with Stephen King personally writing all eight episodes. It is produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Television and Warner Bros. Television. Executive producers are Abrams, King, Moore, Ben Stephenson, and Juan de Dios Larraín.
