Apple TV+ has revealed the first official still from the upcoming Alfonso Cuarón series Disclaimer, a psychological thriller in seven chapters starring Australians Cate Blanchett and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Disclaimer is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Renée Knight. The story revolves around acclaimed journalist Catherine Ravenscroft (Blanchett), who builds her reputation by revealing the misdeeds and transgressions of others. When she receives a novel from an unknown author, she is horrified to realise she is now the main character in a story that exposes her darkest secrets.

As Catherine races to uncover the writer’s true identity, she is forced to confront her past before it destroys both her own life and her relationships with her husband Robert (Sacha Baron Cohen) and their son Nicholas (Kodi Smit-McPhee). The ensemble cast includes Lesley Manville, Louis Partridge, Leila George and Hoyeon.

Disclaimer is produced by Esperanto Filmoj and Anonymous Content. Cuarón serves as executive producer alongside Esperanto Filmoj’s Gabriela Rodriguez and Anonymous Content’s David Levine, and Steve Golin. Renée Knight serves as co-executive producer.
