New to Apple TV+ in June

One of the top new attractions this month on Apple TV+ has earned mixed early reviews.

Lisey’s Story (June 4) is Stephen King’s own adaptation of his novel of the same name.

It’s billed as “a deeply personal thriller” about the widow (Julianne Moore) of a famous novelist (Clive Owen) who, two years after his death, experiences unsettling events that cause her to confront memories that she has deliberately blocked.

“There’s much here that works well,” Variety said. “What is meant to be scary is scary, what is meant to touch the heart will.”

But the trade paper added: “Its blend of realism and fantasy is far from seamless.”

The Hollywood Reporter was less generous, dubbing King’s hands-on involvement “both a rarity and a mixed blessing … So much of what holds Lisey’s Story together as a series, even as its narrative is unraveling, is its cast.”

“Too long, too over-produced, too many talents, too overwrought, too much going on,” was Screen International’s verdict while Empire concluded: “It’s perfectly crafted, austere and elliptically put together, but it does little to stir the blood.”

Season two of Home Before Dark (June 11) has young investigative journalist Hilde Lysiak exposing the powerful corporation behind a mysterious explosion hits a local farm.

Entertainment Tonight reports fans can expect a “more emotional” sequel.

The first three episodes of ’80s dramedy Physical will land on June 18.

It stars Rose Byrne as “a quietly tortured, seemingly dutiful housewife” supporting her smart but controversial husband’s bid for state assembly:

But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own darkly funny take on life she rarely lets the world see. She’s also battling a complex set of personal demons relating to her self-image … that is, until she finds release through the unlikeliest source: the world of aerobics.

The following Friday, Apple TV+ will drop the first three episodes of S2 of animated musical comedy, Central Park, which already has been renewed for a third season.

    I see the proposed new company name for Discovery is Warner Bros. Discovery. I was hoping for something more catchy but still I guess it gets the point across 🙂
