in General Discussion edited June 2020
Apple TV+ is adding "Losing Alice" to its slate of international original series, joining titles like "Tehran," "Slow Horses," and "Pachinko."

"Losing Alice" is a neo-noir psychological thriller that follows Alice, a 48-year-old film director who struggles with finding relevance after raising a family. When Alice encounters 24-year-old screenwriter Sophie, she becomes obsessed with Sophie, and eventually sacrifices her morals to achieve relevance, power, and success.

The series focuses on themes of jealousy, guilt, fear of aging, and interpersonal relationships between women. Apple has described the series as "a love letter for the still-to-rare female director."

Alice is played by Ayelet Zurer, while Sophie is played by Lihi Kornowski. The series is created, written, and directed by Sigal Avin, and will run for eight episodes.

Apple has partnered with Israel's Dori Media productions, in association with HOT, to bring the series to Apple TV+. "Losing Alice" recently hosted its premiere as part of the We Are One: A Global Film Festival.

"Losing Alice" joins other Apple TV+ originals, including Golden Globe-nominated and Critics Choice and SAG award-winning series "The Morning Show", sitcom "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet," "Beastie Boys Story," "The Banker" and sci-fi epic "See."

Apple recently secured the rights to Israeli spy-thriller, "Tehran," which chronicles a young agent's adventures as she undertakes her first mission in Iran's capital city.

Apple TV+ recently signed a multi-year overall deal with longtime talent agent Theresa Kang-Lowe, a champion of diversity in entertainment who recently stepped down as partner of Hollywood powerhouse WME to start her own company.
