Apple today announced that it will co-produce neo-noir psychological thriller “Losing Alice” TV series from creator, writer, and director Sigal Avin. The series will debut on Apple TV+, but a release date has yet to be provided.
“Losing Alice” is a neo-noir psychological thriller that follows Alice (Ayelet Zurer), a 48-year-old film director who struggles with finding relevance after raising a family. When Alice encounters 24-year-old screenwriter Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), she becomes obsessed with Sophie, and eventually sacrifices her morals to achieve relevance, power, and success.
Through the prism of this female Faust, the series explores issues such as jealousy, guilt, fear of aging, and the complex relationships women have among themselves and each other. But above all, “Losing Alice” is a love letter for the still-too-rare female director.
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.”
