Apple TV+ released the first trailer of Suspicion. The mystery thriller stars Uma Thurman as a successful businesswoman whose son gets kidnapped from a hotel in New York. The trailer teases the expected level of paranoia and mistrust as four different British citizens get accused of committing the crime.
The trailer opens with a marriage scene, where the bride, Nathalie Thompson (Georgina Campbell), gets arrested with no further explanations. Nathalie is taken to a questioning room, where she’s accused of conspiring to kidnap Katherine Newman’s (Thurman) son. Nathalie seems shocked by the accusation, just like the other three British people who got arrested for the same motive.
The four British suspects band together to prove their innocence, trying to uncover who’s been framing them. However, since they are strangers to one another, they can’t even be sure that at least one of them is the real culprit behind the kidnapping. The trailer also shows Thurman’s businesswoman is hiding some secrets of her own, which might have motivated the attack on her son.
The series is based on the award-winning Israeli series False Flag, which ran for two series between 2015 and 2016 and followed five ordinary Israeli citizens who discovered one morning that they are the principal suspects of the kidnapping of the Iranian minister of defence. The interesting ensemble cast includes Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory), Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Tom Rhys-Harries (White Lines), Elyes Gabel (Scorpion), and Angel Coulby (Dancing on the Edge).
The series has been adapted by British writer Rob Williams who has also written recent Channel 4 drama Screw as well as BBC One’s The Victim which aired in 2019.
Suspicion comes to Apple TV+ on Friday 4th February.
