Apple TV+ has revealed their first full trailer for Severance, a workplace thriller series directed and executive produced by Ben Stiller and starring Adam Scott (Big Little Lies, The Good Place, inventor of The Cones of Dunshire).
Written and created by Dan Erickson, the series takes place at Lumon Industries, a company that’s redefining work-life balance with a “severance procedure” that surgically divides employees’ memories from their work and persona lives. One of those employees is Mark Scout (Scott), who soon finds himself at the centre of a mystery when a man claiming to be his colleague appears outside of work – an encounter that will force Mark to confront the true nature of his work… and of himself.
And as intriguing as that premise sounds, Severance’s cast offers just as much reason for excitement. Joining Scott are Patricia Arquette, John Turturro, Brit Lower, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman, Michael Chernus, and the inimitable Christopher Walken.
Severance premieres globally on Apple TV+ on February 18th. Check out the trailer below:
