AppleTV+ Orders Limited Series 'The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey' Starring Samuel L. Jackson

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original limited series The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey starring Samuel L. Jackson. Based on the novel by Walter Mosley, the adaptation will produce six episodes.

Jackson stars as Ptolemy Grey, a 91-year-old man forgotten by his family, by his friends, by even himself. On the brink of sinking even deeper into a lonely dementia, he experiences a seismic shift when he's given the tremendous opportunity to briefly regain his memories, and uses this precious and fleeting lucidity to solve his nephew's death and come to terms with his past.

Mosley is writing the adaptation of his novel. He will executive produce with Jackson, David Levine, Eli Selden and Diane Houslin. Anonymous Content will produce.
