Disclaimer: Cate Blanchett, Kevin Kline to star in Alfonso Cuarón Apple series
James R | On 03, Dec 2021
Cate Blanchett and Kevin Kline will star in Disclaimer, a new series from Alfonso Cuarón for Apple TV+.
Apple has given a full series order to the thriller, which is based on the novel of the same name by Renee Knight.
Blanchett will star as Catherine Ravenscroft, a successful and respected television documentary journalist whose work has been built on revealing the concealed transgressions of long-respected institutions. When an intriguing novel written by a widower (played by Kline) appears on her bedside table, she is horrified to realize she is a key character in a story that she had hoped was long buried in the past. A story that reveals her darkest secret. A secret she thought was hers alone.
The series will be the first project to debut from a multi-year deal with Cuarón, who is developing television series exclusively for Apple TV+. It also marks first time Cuarón has written and directed all episodes of an original series.
Cuarón’s production company Esperanto Filmoj will producer alongside Anonymous Content. Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, Birdman) and Bruno Delbonnel (The Tragedy of Macbeth, Inside Llewyn Davis) will serve as directors of photography. Cuarón serves as executive producer alongside Esperanto Filmoj’s Gabriela Rodriguez and Anonymous Content’s David Levine, Dawn Olmstead and Steve Golin.
Blanchett will also executive produce and Renee Knight will serve as co-executive producer.
