“He’s everybody. He’s nobody,”
Apple TV+ have released a trailer for their upcoming thriller Shining Girls. The series sees Elisabeth Moss on the trail of a man who has killed (many times) before, and will kill (lots more) again.
Based on the 2013 novel by South African author Lauren Beukes and adapted for TV by showrunner Silka Luisa (Strange Angel), the eight-episode metaphysical thriller will premiere Friday, April 29 with the first three episodes, followed by a new episode every Friday.
Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale, Mad Men) stars as Kirby Mazrachi, a Chicago newspaper archivist whose journalistic ambitions were put on hold after enduring a traumatic assault. When Kirby learns that a recent murder mirrors her own case, she partners with seasoned-yet-troubled reporter Dan Velazquez (Narcos‘ Wagner Moura) to uncover her attacker’s identity.
As Kirby and Dan come to realize that these cold cases are inextricably linked, their own personal traumas (and Kirby’s “blurred reality”) allow the serial assailant to remain one step ahead.
Shining Girls consists of eight episodes. It will debut with the first three outings on Apple TV+ on Friday 29th April, followed by a new one dropping every week.
