Uma Thurman is heading to Apple TV+ this February for new thriller Suspicion, and new images give us a first look at the series.
The eight-part drama begins with the son of a prominent American businesswoman (Thurman) being kidnapped from a New York hotel. The eye of suspicion quickly falls on four seemingly ordinary British citizens who were at the hotel on the night in question. As they find themselves in a trans-Atlantic cat and mouse race to evade the combined forces of the National Crime Agency and the FBI to prove their innocence, it becomes apparent that not everyone can be trusted. Who is really behind the mysterious abduction, and who is only guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time?
With BAFTA Award nominee Rob Williams (The Man in the High Castle) serving as showrunner and executive producer, Suspicion is based on the award-winning Israeli series False Flag and is produced out of the UK by Keshet Productions, Keshet International’s UK production arm. Alongside Williams, executive producers include Chris Long (The Americans), who also directs, Howard Burch for Keshet Productions, Avi Nir for Keshet Media Group and Anna Winger. The series is produced by Darin McLeod (Watchmen).
In addition to Thurman, the ensemble cast includes 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.), Tom Rhys-Harries (White Lines) and Angel Coulby (Dancing on the Edge).
You can see them in action on 4th February, when the first two episodes premiere on Apple TV+, with the remaining six episode then arriving weekly on Fridays.
