Home Before Dark featurette takes you inside Apple TV+’s newest series
Ahead of Home Before Dark‘s series debut this Friday, Apple TV+ has released the behind-the-scenes featurette for their upcoming Hilde Lysiak-inspired mystery drama series. The video features interviews by the real-life Hilde and the main cast led by The Florida Project breakout star Brooklynn Prince as they give highlight to the titular character and why the series is important to inspire a whole generation of kids. Check out the Home Before Dark featurette below!
Home Before Dark is inspired by the life of 11-year-old Hilde Lysiak and will follow the young girl as she moves to a small lakeside town with her family and unearths a cold case that the town and her father have worked hard to keep buried.
Lysiak is a child reporter in Selinsgrove, PA, who received fame two years ago when she reported on the murder of one of her neighbors and received criticism for being such a young reporter covering a grisly crime, to which she’s defended herself by pointing out not only how dedicated she is to journalism, but also to the fact she had appropriate quotes and sources for her story.
In addition to Brooklynn Prince and Jim Sturgees, the series will also star Abby Miller (The Sinner), Louis Herthum (Westworld), Michael Weston (Psych), Kylie Rogers (Skin) and Joelle Carter (Justified).
The series is directed and executive produced by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians). It is also being produced by Anonymous Content (Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot) and is created by Dana Fox (Ben and Kate) and Dara Resnik (Castle) with Fox and Resnik also serving as showrunners.
Home Before Dark is set to premiere on April 3.
