Apple has ordered a new drama series starring Academy Award-nominated actress Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction) from Keshet Productions.
Suspicion is a high paced thriller about the kidnapping of the son of a prominent American businesswoman, played by Uma Thurman. 21-year-old Leo’s abduction from a large, upmarket hotel in central New York is captured on video and goes viral. Swiftly four British citizens staying at the hotel become the prime suspects. But are they guilty of any more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time?
In addition to Thurman, the new series will star Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory), Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Georgina Campbell (Black Mirror), Elyes Gabel (Scorpion), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Angel Coulby (Dancing On The Edge). Rob Williams will serve as showrunner. Series directed by Golden Globe winner Chris Long and series produced by Darin McLeod.
Williams and Long will also serve as executive producers on the project. Additional executive producers include Howard Burch for Keshet Productions, Avi Nir for Keshet Media Group and Anna Winger (Deutschland 83 & 86)’ alongside Alon Shtruzman (Keshet International), Amit Cohen, Maria Feldman and Liat Benasuly.
Suspicion is based on the award-winning Israeli series False Flag from Keshet Broadcasting, created by Amit Cohen and Maria Feldman.
The series will be produced out of the UK by Keshet Productions, Keshet International‘s UK production arm, and joins upcoming international Apple Originals including Trying, Slow Horses, Masters of the Air, Pachinko and more.
Suspicion is commissioned for Apple out of the UK by Apple’s Heads of Worldwide Video, Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, and Creative Director for Europe Worldwide Video, Jay Hunt.
