To ensure Apple TV+ has new shows for later this year, Apple revealed on Friday that bought the international rights to Losing Alice, an eight-episode series the company calls “a neo-noir psychological thriller.”
The series follows Alice (played by Ayelet Zurer), a 48-year-old film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family. She becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity to achieve success. Losing Alice explores jealousy, guilt, fear of aging, and the complex relationships between women.
The series is created, written and directed by Sigal Avin.
Losing Alice coming to Apple TV+
The first season of this show is currently airing on HOT in Israel. But Apple TV+ will exclusively stream it worldwide later this year.
Apple suspended filming of all its TV projects currently in production in March because of the pandemic outbreak. That left it will no new episodes to air this autumn. Its solution is buying the international streaming rights to shows that have finished filming. Beyond Losing Alice, Apple also confirmed on Friday that it picked up the rights to the espionage thriller Tehran, which was also produced in Israel.
