Apple TV’s Lisey’s Story, which premieres this Friday, looks both like the kind of show I’d be scared to watch and the kind of show I’d want to watch. I’m not very good with scary movies, but I also love thrillers, so I’m absolutely torn on this one. I have greatly enjoyed Apple TV+’s Servant, which can be said to straddle the line, and the thing about Lisey’s Story is that it was adapted by Stephen King himself.
Is there anything better than an author getting to adapt his own story? For better or worse, this is his vision we’re seeing. Completely.
While I struggle with what I want to do, you can check out the trailer for Lisey’s Story below:
Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, and adapted by the author himself, “Lisey’s Story” is a deeply personal thriller that follows Lisey Landon (Academy Award winner Julianne Moore) two years after the death of her husband, famous novelist Scott Landon (Academy Award nominee Clive Owen). A series of unsettling events causes Lisey to face memories of her marriage to Scott that she has deliberately blocked out of her mind.
