Lisey’s Story: The new adaptation of the well-known writer, Stephen King, entitled Lisey’s Story, will have its first two episodes available on Apple TV + on June 4th. New episodes will follow every Friday for six weeks.
Adapted by King himself, who personally wrote all eight episodes, Lisey’s Story is described as “a deeply personal thriller” that follows Lisey Landon (played by Oscar winner Julianne Moore), who shared a deep and, at times, frightening intimacy with her husband, Scott (Clive Owen), a celebrated and successful writer – and full of secrets.
Two years after becoming a widow, Lisey must unravel the papers left by her husband in the office of the isolated house where the two lived. She will have to face Scott’s demons, embarking on a dangerous journey into the darkness he inhabited.
The series is based on the book LOVE: The Story of Lisey, released in 2006.
