Apple TV+ announced it has ordered the series Disclaimer, starring Cate Blanchett and Kevin Kline. Alfonso Cuarón will write, direct and executive produce all episodes of the series; Blanchett is also an executive producer. Disclaimer will be the first project in Cuarón’s multi-picture deal with Apple TV+.
Based on the Renee Knight book, Disclaimer casts Blanchett as TV documentary journalist Catherine Ravenscroft. Kevin Kline will play a widower who publishes a book revealing Ravenscroft’s secrets.
According to a synopsis of the show, “Catherine Ravenscroft (Blanchett), 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.”
