Apple orders new Octavia Spencer Drama ‘Are You Sleeping’

Apple has officially picked up the series “Are You Sleeping,” which will star Octavia Spencer, Variety reports. The drama, which is coming from Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Chernin Entertainment/Endeavor Content, is based on a novel of the same name by Kathleen Barber, which discusses the problems of crime-solving playing out on a public stage. The show was created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman of “The Good Wife” fame, who will serve as showrunner, and the series is expected to specifically examine the U.S. obsession with true crime stories and the boom in podcasts related to them. Apple has ordered 10 episodes, but there is no word yet on when the series is expected to premiere.
