Apple has announced over 10 new series slated to debut via the streaming network in 2019. One show I’m very interested to see is ARE YOU SLEEPING, from Octavia Spencer and starring Aaron Paul, Elizabeth Perkins, Mekhi Phifer, Michael Beach, Tracie Thoms, Haneefah Wood, and Ron Cephas Jones.
ARE YOU SLEEPING is about Poppy Parnell, a relentless investigative reporter who looks to uncover the truth behind a decades-old questionable murder verdict through her new podcast.
Aaron Paul, best known for his role as Jesse on BREAKING BAD, stars as convicted murderer Warren Cave whose guilt or innocence has remained a question in many people’s minds for the past 20 years; with Perkins as Melanie Cave, mother of Warren Cave, the subject of Poppy’s podcast; Phifer as Markus Knox, a former detective and longtime friend of Poppy Parnell.
Michael Beach plays Ingram Rhoades, a successful attorney, and Poppy’s husband; Tracie Thoms as Desiree Scoville, Poppy’s older opinionated sister; Wood as Cydie Scoville, Poppy’s fiercely loyal sister; and Jones as Leander “Shreve” Scoville, Poppy’s father.
