Apple TV+ has ordered its ‘genre-bending’ detective show Sugar to series, with Colin Farrell set to star.
The drama is from creator and executive producer Mark Protosevich (The Cell, I Am Legend) and will be directed by Fernando Meirelles (City Of God, Constant Gardner).
Meirelles and Farrell will exec produce alongside Deadpool’s Simon Kinberg, Audrey Chon (Invasion), Scott Greenberg (The Guilty) and Chip Vucelich.
Sugar became subject of a bidding war last year, but Apple beat Netflix to the series. It is being produced by Kinberg’s Genre Films, which was behind fellow Apple TV+ show Invasion.
