‘The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey’ tells the story of Ptolemy Grey, an old recluse who has been abandoned by friends and family, and is suffering from dementia. He then meets Robyn who gives him a drug that reverses the mental condition and uses the remaining time to solve his grand-nephew’s death.
Samuel L Jackson will serve as the lead actor and producer of the show. Jackson’s last stint in Apple TV+ was with Anthony Mackie, ‘The Banker’.
Apple TV+ is Apple’s streaming service and costs $4.99 per month. It contains exclusive Apple content such as ‘Defending Jacob’, ‘Dickinson’, ‘The Morning Show’ and more.
