Apple partnered with Israel’s Dori Media productions in June on a neo-noir psychological thriller called “Losing Alice” from writer and director Sigal Avin. The company revealed on Thursday that the eight-episode series will premiere globally on January 22, 2021 with the first three episodes. New episodes will then be released every Friday thereafter.
A series of flashbacks and flashforwards gives viewers glimpses into the protagonist’s mind to drive a compelling story.
The series follows Alice (played by Ayelet Zurer), a 48-year-old female film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family. After a brief encounter on the train, she becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity in order to achieve power, relevance and success.
Other cast members include Lihi Kornowski, Gal Toren, Yossi Marshak, Shai Avivi and Chelli Goldenberg.
The announcement follows news that a film called “Tetris” starring Taron Egerton is in the works for Apple TV+, Mariah Carey’s Christmas special debuting on December 4, and an official trailer for nature documentary “Earth at Night in Color.”
