The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is coming to Apple TV+ this March. The drama series, which stars Samuel L. Jackson, is based on the novel by Walter Mosley. Six episodes have been ordered.
Apple TV+ revealed more about the upcoming series in a press release.
“Apple TV+ today revealed a first-look at The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, the highly anticipated limited series executive produced by and starring Oscar nominated Samuel L. Jackson, and based on the acclaimed novel by best-selling author Walter Mosley, who adapts the story for the screen and serves as executive producer. The six-episode gripping series about family, memory and legacy will debut globally Friday, March 11 on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
Hailing from Apple Studios, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey stars Jackson as Ptolemy Grey, an ailing man forgotten by his family, by his friends, and by even himself. Suddenly left without his trusted caretaker and on the brink of sinking even deeper into a lonely dementia, Ptolemy is assigned to the care of orphaned teenager Robyn, played by BAFTA Award nominee Dominique Fishback (“Judas and the Black Messiah”). When they learn about a treatment that can restore Ptolemy’s dementia-addled memories, it begins a journey toward shocking truths about the past, present and future. In addition to Jackson and Fishback, the Apple Original series features Cynthia Kaye McWilliams (Coyote, Real Husbands of Hollywood), Damon Gupton (Black Lightning, Bates Motel), Marsha Stephanie Blake (I Am Your Woman, When They See Us), Walton Goggins (Justified, The Unicorn), and Omar Miller (The Unicorn, Ballers).
Alongside Mosley and Jackson, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is executive produced by Mosley’s producing partner Diane Houslin, Ramin Bahrani, Eli Selden and David Levine for Anonymous Content, and LaTanya Richardson.”
