Apple has been curating series with high profile talent attached for its new tv streaming service.
Oscar winner Octavia Spencer will star in ARE YOU SLEEPING, which offers a glimpse into America’s obsession with true crime podcasts. The series will be produced by another Oscar winner, Reese Witherspoon who has two other projects with Apple.
This is great news for Octavia Spencer who has been trying to break out of being Hollywood’s “go-to” Black actress for period pieces. I’m glad she gets to sink her teeth into a contemporary character.
A couple of seasons ago Spencer was set to star in a MURDER, SHE WROTE reboot for NBC but it never got a series order.
ARE YOU SLEEPING will have a 10 episode run on the Apple platform.
There’s no set date when Apple will launch their new service but keep checking back here for updates!
