Apple has posted a featurette of its upcoming Apple TV+ series, “Palmer,” on its YouTube channel. The film will debut on the streaming service on January 29.
Written by Cheryl Guerriero, “Palmer” follows a former college football phenomenon named Eddie Palmer (played by Timberlake) who, after a stint in prison, returns to his hometown to get his life back on track. There, he faces not only lingering conflicts from his past but also a much more surprising challenge as he finds himself suddenly in charge of a unique young boy who has been abandoned by his wayward mother. Along with Timberlake, “Palmer” stars Juno Temple, Academy Award nominee June Squibb, Alisha Wainright, and introduces Ryder Allen.
An SK Global, Rhea Films and Nadler No GMO Popcorn Co. project, in association with the Hercules Film Fund, Palmer is produced by Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, Charlie Corwin, Daniel Nadler and Academy Award-winning producer Charles B. Wessler. The film is executive produced by Terry Dougas, Jean-Luc De Fanti, Mark O’Connor, Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis and Bruce Toll. The script for the film appeared on the 2016 Blacklist.
