Peacock has announced that Alison Brie (Somebody I Used to Know) and Jake Lacy (The White Lotus) have joined the cast of the upcoming limited drama series Apples Never Fall, joining the previously announced Annette Bening (American Beauty) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park).
Based on the New York Times bestselling novel of the same name from author Liane Moriarty (Big Little Lies, Nine Perfect Strangers), Apples Never Fall “centers on the Delaneys, who from the outside appear to be an enviably contented family. Former tennis coaches Joy (Bening) and Stan (Neill) are parents to four adult children. After decades of marriage, they have finally sold their famed tennis academy and are ready to start what should be the golden years of their lives. But after Joy disappears, her children are forced to re-examine their parents’ marriage and their family history with fresh eyes.”
Lacy has been cast as Troy Delany, “the second-oldest Delaney child whose competitive edge he developed as a young tennis player is now his greatest asset as a venture capitalist.”
Brie meanwhile will portray Amy Delaney, “the oldest Delaney child and the black sheep of the family. Still renting a room in a house meant for grad students and jumping from one career path to another, Amy is a mess.”
Melanie Marnich (The Affair) is serving as writer and showrunner on Apples Never Fall, while David Heyman (Marriage Story) and Moriarty are serving as executive producers and Chris Sweeney (The Tourist) will direct multiple episodes, including the first.
