‘Lady in the Lake’ First Official Still

Variety published an article today announcing the release date for “Lady in the Lake” on Apple TV. The miniseries will premiere with the first two episodes on Wednesday, July 19.

The seven-part limited series follows a bored Jewish housewife (Portman) in the 1960s, who divorces her husband and moves to Baltimore to work as an investigative journalist. She soon becomes fixated on the perplexing death of Cleo Johnson (Moses Ingram), a mother who struggled to provide for her family while navigating the political underbelly of Black Baltimore.

The article contains statements by director Alma Har’el about the show, including explanations about the recast of Lupita Nyong’o by Moses Ingram. Hopefully we’ll see a full trailer in the next few days…
