Apple TV+ has released the trailer for their upcoming metaphysical thriller, Shining Girls, which saw its premiere at SXSW.
Shining Girls follows 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, to uncover her attacker’s identity. As they realize these cold cases are inextricably linked, their own personal traumas and Kirby’s blurred reality allow her assailant to remain one step ahead.
Based on the novel of the same name by Lauren Beukes, the series stars Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Kirby Mazrachi and Wagner Moura (Narcos) as Dan Velazquez. Phillipa Soo (Hamilton), Amy Brenneman (Judging Amy), and Jamie Bell (Snowpiercer) round out the ensemble cast. Moss also serves as executive producer and director of some episodes on the series.
The eight-episode series premieres on April 29, 2022 exclusively on Apple TV+. Launching with its first three episodes on release day, the final five will debut weekly.
