Apple has released the official trailer for the highly anticipated series 'Shining Girls' featuring Emmy Award-winning actress Elisabeth Moss, which will make its global debut on TV+ on April 29th.
Based on Lauren Beukes’ bestselling novel, the upcoming eight-episode mystery series follows Kirby Mazrachi (Moss), a Chicago newspaper archivist whose career 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 (Wagner Moura), 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. Rounding out the cast are Phillipa Soo, Amy Brenneman and Jamie Bell.
The atmospheric trailer, filled with mysterious dialogue and an unnerving soundtrack, promises a mind-bending story where nothing is as it seems and what looks like a particularly eerie performance from Jamie Bell.
Elisabeth Moss also serves as executive producer alongside Lindsey McManus, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson and Michael Hampton and Rebecca Hobbs. The series is written by Silka Luisa with Emmy Award winner Michelle MacLaren directing the first two episodes. Her previous work includes 'Breaking Bad', 'Better Call Saul', 'The Morning Show' and 'Game of Thrones'.
The show will debut with the first three episodes with a new episode following each subsequent Friday through June 3rd
Up Next: Ahead of the show's release, Lauren Beukes' acclaimed novel of the same name is available now via Apple Books.
