Staff Reporter | On 12, Mar 2020
Apple has ordered Suspicion, a new drama starring Uma Thurman.
The high-paced thriller follows the kidnapping of the son of a prominent American businesswoman. 21-year-old Leo’s abduction from a large, upmarket hotel in central New York is captured on video and goes viral. Swiftly, four British citizens staying at the hotel become the prime suspects. But are they guilty of anymore than being in the wrong place at the wrong time?
In addition to Thurman, the new series will star Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory), Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Georgina Campbell (Black Mirror), Elyes Gabel (Scorpion), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Angel Coulby (Dancing on the Edge).
Rob Williams will serve as showrunner. The series is directed by Golden Globe winner Chris Long and produced by Darin McLeod.
Williams and Long will also serve as executive producers on the project, along with Howard Burch for Keshet Productions, Avi Nir for Keshet Media Group, Anna Winger (Deutschland 83) and Liat Benasuly (Fauda).
The series is based on the award-winning Israeli series False Flag from Keshet Broadcasting, created by Amit Cohen and Maria Feldman.
The series will be produced out of the UK by Keshet Productions, Keshet International’s UK production arm, and joins upcoming international Apple Originals including Trying, Slow Horses, Masters of the Air and Pachinko.
