Actors Cherry Jones and Jason Segel have joined the cast of upcoming Apple TV+ original movie The Sky Is Everywhere. Jones (HBO’s Succession and Apple TV+’s Defending Jacob) and Segel (the excellent Forgetting Sarah Marshall) will join relative newcomer Grace Kaufman.

The movie is an adaptation of a Jandy Nelson young-adult novel. The plot follows a high-school girl mourning the death of her sister. She becomes romantically attached to her late sister’s fiancé and another young man newly arrived in town.

The Apple TV+ crime drama’s seventh episode, titled “Job,” proves this in spectacularly agonizing fashion.
