Peacock has just unveiled the official teaser for their upcoming limited drama series Apples Never Fall, which boasts a star-studded cast and will debut on the streaming platform in its entirety on March 14. The series will consist of seven episodes, and stars Sam Neill, Annette Bening, Jake Lacy, and Alison Brie. The series comes from writer, showrunner, and executive producer Melanie Marnich (The OA, The Affair), and executive producer David Heyman (Wonka, Barbie) and is based on the acclaimed novel by Liane Moriarty, which achieved bestseller status in the New York Times.

Marnich released a statement when the series was announced, expressing her excitement at helming the project, stating that she had “never been able to resist” a story that she described as an “immersive vacation from life.” She went on to say:

“The riveting and twisty mystery is anchored by the Delaney family, whose wit, wounds, yearning and complexity made me want to translate this great book to television and made me feel like the Delaneys had something to say to all of us. Through them, this story dives into the complexities of love, long-term marriage, and the struggle to define oneself within—and beyond—family.

It was thrilling to write about the truly grown-up issues the Delaneys are grappling with, like the sometimes brutal sacrifices parents make to keep a marriage and family together. We also take the gloves off when capturing what it takes to be a working mother and wife as we follow Joy into the mystery at the heart of this show.”

“Ultimately, Apples Never Fall is a very honest show about what it means to be a part of a very complicated family,” continued Marnich. “Which is every family, right? As we always said in the writers’ room… Something really bad might’ve happened at the Delaney’s…but you still wanna swing by for a gin and tonic.”

However, their peaceful life takes an unexpected turn with the arrival of a young, injured woman at their doorstep, injecting a sense of adventure and excitement they’ve been craving.
