Apple TV+ continues to add to its library which is turning out to be incredible. One of their upcoming series is the eight-episode adaptation of Stephen King‘s 2006 novel “Lisey’s Story.”

Deadline is reporting that Joan Allen (“Mindhunter”, The Contender) has joined the cast that already includes Oscar winner Julianne Moore, Clive Owen, and Jonathan Rayson. Allen will star as Lisey’s (Moore) oldest sister Amanda.

“Every marriage has two hearts, one light, and one dark. Lisey knew it when she first fell for Scott. And now he’s dead, she knows it for sure. Lisey was the light to Scott Landon’s dark for twenty-five years. As his wife, only she saw the truth behind the public face of the famous author – that he was a haunted man whose bestselling novels were based on a terrifying reality. Now Scott has gone, Lisey wants to lock herself away with her memories. But the fans have other ideas. And when the sinister threats begin, Lisey realizes that, just as Scott depended on her strength – her light – to live, so she will have to draw on his darkness to survive.”

Written and executive produced by Stephen King himself, the series is directed by Pablo Larrain (“Jackie”). King, Moore, and J.J. Abrams executive produce with Ben Stephenson and Warner Bros. Television.
