Based on the Renee Knight novel of the same name, "Disclaimer" follows Catherine Ravenscroft, played by Blanchett. Ravenscroft is a "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. "A story that reveals her darkest secret. A secret she thought was hers alone."

The series will be the first in a group of projects included in a multi-year deal between Apple and Cuaron. "Disclaimer" also marks the first time that Cuaron has written and directed all episodes for an original series.

"Disclaimer" 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 executive produce, while Renee Knight will serve as co-executive producer.

    So, I was just wondering whatever happened to Kevin Kline and 5 minutes later I opened Apple Insider and saw this story. Pretty random. Anyway, this will obviously be good with so many talented people involved. I can’t wait to see who else they sign to round out the cast.

    Cate Blanchet is an amazing actress -- from the Aviator to Lord of the Rings she has excelled in outstanding movies -- I suspect this will be good.
