Based on the novel of the same name by Renee Knight, “Disclaimer” will star Blanchett 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 (played by 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.

The series will be the first project to debut from a multi-year deal with Cuarón, who is developing television series exclusively for Apple TV+.

It also marks first time Cuarón has written and directed all episodes of an original series. Cuarón currently serves as producer on Apple Original Film “Raymond and Ray,” which is now in production from Apple Studios.

Blanchett will also executive produce on new series with award-winning cinematographers Emmanuel Lubezki and Bruno Delbonnel serving as directors of photography.

Kline, best known for “The Starling”, “Beauty and the Beast” and Broadway’s “Present Laughter”, is making his series debut.

“Disclaimer” joins a growing roster of award-winning Apple Original series such as “Ted Lasso”, “The Morning Show” and “Truth Be Told” and “Roar” among others.
