AppleTV+ Gives Series Order to Thriller 'Disclaimer' Starring Cate Blanchett and Kevin Kline

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original limited series Disclaimer starring Academy Award winners Cate Blanchett (The Aviator, Blue Jasmine) and Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda).

Based on the novel by Renee Knight, Blanchett will star as Catherine Ravenscroft, a successful and respected television documentary journalist whose work has been built on revealing the concealed transgressions of long-respected institutions. When an intriguing novel written by a widower (Kline) appears on her bedside table, she is horrified to realize she is a key character in a story that she had hoped was long buried in the past. A story that reveals her darkest secret. A secret she thought was hers alone.

Academy Award winner Alfonso CuarĂ³n (Gravity, Roma) will write and direct every episode of the series. He will also executive produce with Blanchett, Gabriela Rodriguez, David Levine, Dawn Olmstead and Steve Golin. Knight will serve as a co-executive producer. Esperanto Filmoj and Anonymous Content will produce.
