Apple unveils new thriller “Severance” starring Adam Scott

With a star-studded cast featuring Adam Scott, Britt Lower, John Turturro, Christopher Walken, and Patricia Arquette, the series is expected to tackle the consequences of employees embracing a one-sided work-life balance that separates work and out-of-work memories.

The procedure is called into question as Mark (played by Adam Scott) “finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work … and of himself.” Apple teased in the announcement.

The series is written and executive produced by Dan Erickson, who also serves as co-showrunner. Mark Friedman will also serve as co-showrunner along with being the executive producer.
