Apple TV+ has ordered “Disclaimer,” a new original series from director, writer, producer, cinematographer and editor Alfonso Cuarón (Roma, Gravity, Children of Men) through his production company Esperanto Filmoj.
The psychological thriller will star Cate Blanchett, who will also executive produce, and Kevin Kline.
Cuarón will write, direct and executive produce the series.
Based on the novel of the same name by Renee Knight, “Disclaimer” will star Blanchett as Catherine Ravenscroft, a successful and respected television documentary journalist whose work has been built on revealing the concealed transgressions of long-respected institutions. When an intriguing novel written by a widower (Kline) appears on her bedside table, she is horrified to realize she is a key character in a story that she had hoped was long buried in the past.
The series will be the first project to debut from a multiyear deal with Cuarón, who is developing television series exclusively for Apple TV+. It also marks first time Cuarón has written and directed all episodes of an original series. Cuarón currently serves as producer on Apple Original Film Raymond and Ray, which is now in production from Apple Studios.
