Apple TV+ Releases Trailer for ‘Surface’
Sophie says in a voice over that plays during the trailer, “We can’t just pretend we’re new people. Or that the past doesn’t exist.”
The official synopsis states,
Set in high-end San Francisco, Surface stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Morning Show) as Sophie, a woman who has suffered a traumatic head injury that has left her with extreme memory loss, believed to be a result of a suicide attempt. As Sophie embarks on a quest to put the pieces of her life back together with the help of her husband and friends, she begins to question whether or not the truth she is told is in fact the truth she has lived. Through twists and turns and an unexpected love triangle, this sexy, elevated thriller asks: What if you woke up one day and didn’t know your own secrets? Surface is a story of self- discovery which contemplates if we are pre-programmed to become who we are, or if we choose our own identity.
Created by Veronica West, Surface also sees her as showrunner and writer. West previously wrote and produced the Hulu series High Fidelity. She also produced the hit series Chicago Fire and Hart of Dixi. Additionally, West also co-executive produces alongside star Mbatha-Raw and Reese Witherspoon (Little Fires Everywhere).
In addition to Mbatha-Raw and Jackson-Cohen, the series also features Stephan James (If Beale Street Could Talk), Ari Graynor (Mrs. America), Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Without a Trace), François Arnaud (I Killed My Mother) and Millie Brady (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).
