According to Deadline, Seyfried will play the role of a struggling psychologist who tries to maintain a balance between her work and responsibilities as a single mother in Apple TV+’s new “The Crowded Room” series.
Seyfried will play Rya, a clinical psychologist faced with the most challenging case of her career. She cannot help but put her patients first, all the while trying to balance her life as a single mother.
The ten-episodes long Season 1 of the new series will tell the story of a young man’s trial, played by Tom Holland, suffering from multiple personality disorder.
“The Crowded Room” is a gripping anthology series that will explore the true and inspirational stories of those who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness.
