WATCH: Trailer drops for M Night Shyamalan’s Apple TV series Servant

November 7th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Oooooooh… this looks pretty dark and creepy and it looks like M Night Shyamalan could be getting back to when he was the mystery master on screen.

The new series will debut on apple TV on November 28th and it’s already got me considering adding Apple TV to my subscription list.

Set in Philadelphia, the show follows Sean and Dorothy Turner (Toby Kebbell and Lauren Ambrose respectively), a Philadelphia couple who come to learn that the nanny (Leanne Grayson) they’ve hired to look after their baby is not all that she seems. If only it were that weird, because the Turners’ child, Jericho, is no longer alive (he died at 13 weeks) and Dorothy has actually been caring for a fake baby doll this entire time. Rupert Grint also stars.

At NYCC, Shyamalan said of the concept: “That premise is so tragic and weird and scary. It’s also inappropriately funny… I’m really interested in the ‘you’re scared and laughing’ kind of thing. 

“It has almost this play-like quality to it,” he added.

Watch Servant November 28 on Apple TV

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
