Apple TV + continues to expand the ranks of its platform, with a new series that stars Uma Thurman as a mother desperate to find her kidnapped son.
Since its inception in 2019, Apple TV+ has made it a point of honor to offer only new productions, whether films or series. A very different strategy from that adopted by its competitors like Netflix and Disney +, which rely on already popular productions to attract new subscribers. Disney, for example, relies on the Marvel and Star Wars licenses to make revenue.
If the apple platform has some successes to its credit, such as the Ted Lasso series which won several awards, we have to admit that its growth is rather timid. In the United States, it claims less than 20 million subscribers. Figures significantly below those of Disney+, yet launched at the same time.
However, the Cupertino company does not slow down its efforts and regularly offers new series which, it hopes, will become the huge success it lacks to really enter the big leagues. Apple can also boast of attracting big names from Hollywood, such as Uma Thurman who will be starring in Suspicion next February. A few weeks before its release on our screens, the new series is revealed through a trailer, rather promising.
The story follows an influential businesswoman whose son was kidnapped from a hotel in New York. The charges are quickly brought on four British citizens, who were staying in the American city at the time of the facts. Thrown into a game of cat and mouse, they try to escape the British National Crime Agency and the FBI, in order to prove their innocence.
A 5-star cast
Alongside Uma Thurman, we find several faces well known to fans of serial productions. Kunal Nayyar, famous for his role in The Big Bang Theory, should thus camp Aadesh Chopra, one of the victims of this political plot. He will give the reply to Elizabeth Henstrige (Marvel: Agents of SHIELD) et Angel Coulby (Merlin). We will also find Tom Rhys Harries (Britannia) and Noah Emmerich (The Americans). The production will be handled by Rob Williams, who has notably worked on the Amazon series The Man in the High Castle.
The meeting with Suspicion is set at February 4th on Apple TV +. On that date, the first two episodes will be made available to subscribers. Then, it will adopt a weekly rhythm, at the rate of one episode per week until the beginning of next March.
