Colin Farrell To Star In Genre-Bending Apple TV+ Series

The Batman star Colin Farrell is set to lead Apple TV+'s new series Sugar.

The streaming giant behind this year's Best Picture winner at the Oscars, CODA, Apple TV+

has shown itself to be a worthy competitor in the crowded TV and movie landscape, especially in recent months.

The streamer has also had no trouble attracting A-list talent, with Claire Danes and

Tom Hiddleston currently starring in its series The Essex Serpent.

Now, Apple TV+ announces that Farrell is attached to play the lead role in the upcoming series Sugar,

with the Irish actor also set to executive produce the project.

City of God director and Academy Award-nominee Fernando Meirelles is set to helm

the series as well as executive produce.
