Fans of psychological thrillers should get ready to tune in to Losing Alice, which will debut on Apple TV+ in early 2021.
It’s one of many thrillers the streaming service currently has in development.
How to find Losing Alice
Apple describes the show like this: “Losing Alice follows an aging director, Alice, and her growing obsession with a young screenwriter whose dark, troubling script appears to be more truth than fiction.”
The first season of this show aired on HOT in Israel. But Apple TV+ will exclusively stream it worldwide starting Friday, January 22. There are eight episodes.
Getting a show that already played is an unusual move for Apple. Virtually all its other content is original. But when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down TV production, the Mac-maker struck a couple of deals. One will bring Losing Alice to Apple TV+. The other snagged Tehran, which debuted on the service in September.
Apple TV+ producing plenty of thrillers
The word “thriller” appears frequently in the descriptions of shows in development for Apple TV+.
Earlier in 2020, the streaming service gave a series order to Shining Girls, a metaphysical thriller that will star Emmy Award winner Elisabeth Moss. A straight-to-series order went to Echo 3, an action-thriller from Mark Boal, who picked up multiple Oscars for writing The Hurt Locker. Or there’s Suspicion, a thriller starring Uma Thurman.
The streaming service also acquired the movie rights to an adaptation of graphic novel Snow Blind, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Again, it’s a thriller.
