Joe Otterson for Variety:

The six-episode series is based on the novel of the same name by Walter Mosley, who will adapt the book for the screen.

Jackson stars as the titular Ptolemy Grey, a 91 year old man forgotten by his family, by his friends, by even himself. On the brink of sinking even deeper into a lonely dementia, Ptolemy experiences a seismic shift when he’s given the tremendous opportunity to briefly regain his memories, and uses this precious and fleeting lucidity to solve his nephew’s death and come to terms with his past.

Jackson and Mosley will both executive produce the series, along with David Levine and Eli Selden of Anonymous Content and Diane Houslin. Apple Studios will produce.

MacDailyNews Take: Apple TV+ continues to amass interesting projects with top name talent! This is the second go-round with Apple TV+ for Samuel L. Jackson following the critically-acclaimed film The Banker.


      1. It’s nice that you “can separate the person from the performance”. Albeit, I think you mean you can separate one’s politics from one’s performance given as an actor.

        It is ashame that a lot of these Hollywood Cucks can’t do the same when at the Oscars!

        “top name talent” and “obnoxious a-hole” look a whole lot alike.

        And if this is what Cook wants for Apple TV, well, it’s Apple’s baby, but, and to quote Samuel Jackson, “I don’t give a Fuck”!

  1. Another movie I look forward to never seeing.

    Hollywood, take your crap and shove it right up your hating ass. You will see Hunter there waiting for you with a crack pipe in his mouth.

  2. Walter Mosley is a great writer. One of my favorites.

    Samuel L. Jackson is a one dimensional clown that Hollywood loves for some reason. I guess it’s the honed and practiced vulgarity. Hollywood tend to get stuck on certain black actors and stick with them indefinitely for some strange reason. I suspect it’s the typical white liberal view of blacks as a one dimension collective of limited cognitive ability, as Joe Biden describes us, though not in those words.

    In other words Samuel L. Jackson says a lot of curse words, one in particular, and black,people,cater to their lowest common denominator so they will love seeing him in this movie.

    If I had to pick a well known actor for the roll, it would have been Morgan Freeman, but then Freeman notably rejects the Hollywood political line, especially when it comes to racism.
