Elisabeth Moss & Phillipa Soo in First Trailer for 'Shining Girls' Series
"After what he did… things aren't how they should be." Apple has revealed an impressive first official trailer for a new mystery thriller series called Shining Girls, based on the best-selling novel by Lauren Beukes. It's coming to Apple TV+ for streaming this April. "Things change just like that. And then it happens again, and again, and again…" Another new film about abuse and harm and how it forever changes people. Years after a brutal attack left her in a constantly shifting reality, Kirby Mazrachi learns that a recent murder is linked to her assault. She teams up with the veteran reporter Dan Velazquez to try and understand her ever-changing present and confront her past. Elisabeth Moss stars (and directed a few of the episodes as well) with Amy Brenneman, Phillipa Soo, Jamie Bell, Wagner Moura, Christopher Denham, Deanna Reed-Foster, and Marc Grapey in the main cast. The clever title for this makes me think - is this another The Shining sequel after Doctor Sleep? But nope. Instead it looks much more like Zodiac than anything else.
