Apple TV+ today shared the official trailer for the upcoming drama to its YouTube channel. The film centers around Timberlake’s character, a former college football phenomenon who returns home after a lengthy stint in prison. When he returns home, he finds a set of whole new issues, with his past coming back to haunt him.
Here’s how Apple describes the upcoming film:
After 12 years in prison, former high school football star Eddie Palmer returns home to put his life back together—and forms an unlikely bond with Sam, an outcast boy from a troubled home. But Eddie’s past threatens to ruin his new life and family. Coming exclusively to Apple TV+ on January 29.
Palmer is directed by Fisher Stevens (Short Circuit), and Cheryl Guerriero is the writer. It’s being produced by Daniel Nadler, Charlie Corwin, Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, and Charles B. Wessler.
Here’s the trailer:
Ryder Allen will be making his feature film debut in the upcoming movie, while Oscar-nominee June Squibb (Nebraska), Juno Temple (Horns), and Alisha Wainwright (Raising Dion) will be co-starring alongside Timberlake.
