The Changeling Featurette Uncovers the New Apple TV+ Series

Learn more about the twisted new Apple TV+ series.

Set to hit Apple TV+ next month is the all-new series The Changeling, which brings together a number of compelling themes to make for a unique and unexpected experience. In hopes of offering some insight into the new project, the stars of the new series themselves, LaKeith Stanfield and Clark Backo, discuss the project and how they would entice audiences to check out the project in an all-new narrative. Funnily enough, Stanfield admits that he thinks audiences should check out the series themselves and allow the viewers to form their own descriptions of the project. You can check out the new The Changeling featurette below before it premieres on Apple TV+ on September 8th.

Apple TV+ describes the new series, "Based on the acclaimed best-selling book of the same name by Victor LaValle, The Changeling is a fairytale for grown-ups. A horror story, a parenthood fable, and a perilous odyssey through a New York City you didn't know existed. In addition to Stanfield, the series stars Clark Backo, Adina Porter, Samuel T. Herring, Alexis Louder, Jared Abrahamson, and special guest star Malcolm Barrett.

"The Changeling is written and adapted by showrunner and executive producer Kelly Marcel, and the pilot episode was directed by Melina Matsoukas. The series is produced by Apple Studios and Annapurna. Megan Ellison, Patrick Chu, and Ali Krug are executive producers on behalf of Annapurna. Showrunner Kelly Marcel, the book's author Victor LaValle, David Knoller, and director Jonathan van Tulleken executive produce alongside star LaKeith Stanfield. Director Matsoukas serves as executive producer through her De La Revolución Films. Sue Naegle and David Wolkis also serve as executive producer, Khaliah Neal as co-executive producer."

The 2017 Victor LaValle novel is described, "When Apollo Kagwa's father disappeared, he left his son a box of books and strange recurring dreams. Now Apollo is a father himself -- and as he and his wife, Emma, settle into their new lives as parents, exhaustion, and anxiety start to take their toll. Apollo's old dreams return and Emma begins acting odd. At first, Emma seems to be exhibiting signs of postpartum depression. But before Apollo can do anything to help, Emma commits a horrific act and vanishes. Thus begins Apollo's quest to find a wife and child who are nothing like he'd imagined. His odyssey takes him to a forgotten island, a graveyard full of secrets, a forest where immigrant legends still live, and finally back to a place he thought he had lost forever."  

The Changeling premieres on Apple TV+ on September 8th.
