First French-English Liaison for Apple TV+

Apple TV+ will premiere its first French and English-language Original on February 24.

Liaison stars Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Westworld) and Eva Green (The Luminaries, Penny Dreadful) in a six-part thriller about “how the mistakes of our past have the potential to destroy our future, combining action with an unpredictable, multi-layered plot where espionage and political intrigue play out against a story of passionate and enduring love”.

Peter Mullan (Ozark), Gérard Lanvin (Call My Agent!), Daniel Francis (Small Axe), Stanislas Merhar (The Black Book) and Thierry Frémont (Murder In Mind) co-star.

Liaison was created and written by Virginie Brac (Engrenages) and directed by Stephen Hopkins (24).

And next month Apple TV+ will premiere the four-part documentary series Super League: The War for Football (January 13) that documents “the high stakes battle that is set off when plans for a breakaway league emerge and the past, present, and future of European football collide, leaving the game’s most powerful leaders to defend, or upend, the traditions of the sport”.

Apple TV+ promises “unprecedented access to league presidents, club owners and the architects behind the European Super League” and says the series will join the streamer’s expanding offering of non-fiction programming featuring some of the biggest names in sports, including:

  • a recently announced feature documentary about the groundbreaking life and career of seven-time Formula One world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton
  • newly announced documentary film Underrated, featuring NBA legend Stephen Curry
  • the Emmy-nominated four-part documentary event series They Call Me Magic
  • The Dynasty, a new documentary event series about the New England Patriots
  • The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball, about basketball sensation Makur Maker
  • acclaimed documentary series Make or Break, featuring behind-the-scenes access to the world’s best surfers as they battle for the top title at the World Surf League Championship Tour
