‘Severance’ Trailer: Ben Stiller’s Apple TV+ Workplace Thriller Stars Adam Scott And Patricia Arquette

For a lot of workaholics out there, no such thing exists as the perfect work/life balance. So what if there was a procedure that makes finding that balance mandatory? That’s the idea behind Ben Stiller’s new AppleTV + series, Severance, which reunites him with Escape at Dannemora star Patricia Arquette.

Severance centers on a group of people who undergo an experimental procedure that cuts off any memory of work during their personal time, and makes them forget their personal lives during work hours.  The perfect work/life balance is then achieved, but is there something darker going on here?

Also in the cast are Adam Scott, Britt Lower, John Turturro, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman, Michael Chernus, and Christopher Walken. Stiller directs each of the episodes from scripts by Dan Erickson.

Severance debuts on AppleTV + beginning February 18th 2022.
