Apple TV+ scores rights to Alfonso Cuaron’s “Disclaimer”

Based on the novel of the same name by Renee Knight, “Disclaimer” will star Blanchett as Catherine Ravenscroft who is 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 (played by 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,” Apple wrote of the series in a press release. “A story that reveals her darkest secret. A secret she thought was hers alone.”

The series will be the first project to debut from a multi-year deal with Cuarón, who is developing television series exclusively for Apple’s streaming service. Disclaimer also marks the first time Cuarón has written and directed all episodes of an original series. 

The series will be produced by Esperanto Filmoj and Anonymous Content. Emmanuel Lubezki and Bruno Delbonnel will serve as directors of photography, while Cuaron will executive produce alongside Gabriela Rodriguez, David Levine, Dawn Olmstead, and Steve Golin. Blanchett will also serve as executive producer, while Renee Knight will serve as co-executive producer.

To watch Disclaimer when it debuts, viewers will need a subscription to Apple’s streaming service. For $4.99 per month, Apple TV+ is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple TV via the Apple TV app.
