After the massive success and acclaim that Ben Stiller, the director, received for his limited series, Escape at Dannemora, the man is all set and rolling to be associated with another series in the form of Severance.
And none other than Adam Scott, who is best known for his role in Parks & Recreation is all set to headline the thriller series which is a straight-to-order show and will consist of 10 episodes.
Severance is a workplace thriller that is set at Lumen Industries, a company looking to take work-life balance to a new level. Scott will star as Mark, an employee with a dark past trying to put himself back together.
Dan Erickson created the series and will pen the scripts and exec produce alongside Chris Black (Outcast, Desperate Housewives). Stiller's Red Hour Productions' Nicky Weinstock and Jackie Cohn will also exec produce. Big Little Lies and Parks and Recreation grad Scott will also be credited as a producer.
Severance, which has been in the works for months, hails from Endeavor Content, the combined financing and sales efforts of WME and IMG. Endeavor Content also produces Apple TV+'s recently renewed Jason Momoa drama See and its upcoming Truth Be Told.
