Patricia Arquette to Star in Apple TV+ Drama ‘Severance’ Opposite Adam Scott

Project reunites her ”Escape at Dannemora“ director Ben Stiller

Patricia Arquette has joined the cast of Ben Stiller’s Apple TV+ drama “Severance,” the streaming service said Monday.

She’ll star in and produce the workplace thriller alongside “Big Little Lies” alum Adam Scott. Ben Stiller is director and executive producer.

The project reunites Arquette and Stiller after previously collaborating on the Showtime limited series “Escape at Dannemora,” for which Arquette earned an Emmy nomination and a win at the 2019 Golden Globes.

From writer Dan Erickson, “Severance” centers on Lumen Industries, a fictional company “that’s looking to take work-life balance to a new level,” according to Apple. Adam Scott will star as Mark, an employee with a dark past trying to put himself back together. Arquette will play his boss.

The project hails from Endeavor Content, the studio behind fellow Apple TV+ dramas “See” and the soon-to-premiere “Truth Be Told.”

Executive producers on the series include Chris Black and Dan Erickson, and Ben Stiller, Nicky Weinstock and Jackie Cohn of Red Hour Productions. Adam Scott will serve as a producer alongside Arquette.
