Natalie Portman’s Lady in the Lake Drops Full-Length Trailer — Get Apple TV+ Release Date

Natalie Portman has plans for the summer with Apple TV+.

Lady in the Lake, a seven-episode limited series starring Portman, will premiere July 19 with its first two episodes; subsequent episodes will be released every Friday (through Aug. 23). On Tuesday, Apple TV+ released a full-length trailer for the drama, which you can watch above.

Based on the Laura Lippman novel and set in 1966 Baltimore as the disappearance of a young girl grips the city, Lady in the Lake stars Portman as Jewish housewife Maddie Schwartz, who is “seeking to shed a secret past and reinvent herself as an investigative journalist.” Emmy nominee Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit, Obi-Wan Kenobi) co-stars as Cleo Johnson, “a mother navigating the political underbelly of Black Baltimore while struggling to provide for her family.” The two women’s “disparate lives seem parallel at first, but when Maddie becomes fixated on Cleo’s mystifying death, a chasm opens that puts everyone around them in danger.”
