Apple TV+ unveiled the trailer for “The Changeling,” an upcoming eight-part drama headlined by Academy Award nominee LaKeith Stanfield, who also serves as an executive producer. Set to premiere globally on Friday, September 8, 2023, on Apple TV+, the series will kick off with its initial three episodes, followed by a new episode each subsequent Friday until October 13.
Derived from Victor LaValle’s acclaimed best-selling novel of the same title, “The Changeling” presents a mature fairytale – a fusion of horror, parental allegory, and a treacherous expedition through an unfamiliar side of New York City. The cast includes not only Stanfield but also features Clark Backo, Adina Porter, Samuel T. Herring, Alexis Louder, Jared Abrahamson, and a special appearance by Malcolm Barrett.
Crafted under the pen of showrunner and executive producer Kelly Marcel, “The Changeling” has been adapted for the screen. The pilot episode was expertly directed by Melina Matsoukas.
