On Friday, Apple announced the new drama will premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, April 30, 2021. The series is based on the book of the same name, which was written by Paul Theroux. The show will star Justin Theroux (Mulholland Drive) and Melissa George (30 Days of Night), along with Logan Polish (The Astronaut Farmer) and Gabriel Bateman (Child’s Play).
