I’ve enjoyed a lot of Ben Stiller‘s work over the past few years and new series Severance, created by Dan Erickson and Directed/Produced by Stiller, appears be equally fascinating and timely.
Severance centers around Mark Scout (Adam Scott), a leader of a team of office workers whose memories have been surgically divided, in an interesting Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind-type way, between their work and personal lives. This experiment in ‘work-life balance’ is called into question as Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work… and of himself.
As well as Scott, the series also stars Patricia Arquette, John Turturro, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman, Michael Chernus and Christopher Walken.
Watch the trailer now, it comes to Apple TV+ from 18 February, 2022:
