In a press release (opens in new tab) on its Newsroom website, Apple has announced that it has landed "High Desert," a new comedy series starring Patricia Arquette and directed (at least one episode) by Ben Stiller, for Apple TV+. Both actors will also executive produce the series.
The series will follow Arquette as Peggy, a former addict who decides to become a private investigator after her mother passes away. The series is created by some of the minds behind "Nurse Jackie," "Damages," and "Miss Congeniality."
The new series continues Apple's relationship with Arquette and Stiller, who are also currently creating "Severance," a workplace thriller that is executive produced by both and directed by Stiller.
Apple just launched its latest series Long Way Up, starring Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, to its streaming service last week.
