'Surface' First Look: Gugu Mbatha-Raw's Upcoming Apple TV+ Drama Series Sets Premiere

Apple TV+ has dropped the first look and revealed the premiere date for Surface, which stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

The series, from Veronica West, premieres on July 29 with three episodes.

Here’s the description: Set in high-end San Francisco, Surface, stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw who also executive produces, as Sophie, a woman who has suffered a traumatic head injury that has left her with extreme memory loss, believed to be a result of a suicide attempt. As Sophie embarks on a quest to put the pieces of her life back together with the help of her husband and friends, she begins to question whether or not the truth she is told is in fact the truth she has lived. Through twists and turns and an unexpected love triangle, this sexy, elevated thriller asks: What if you woke up one day and didn’t know your own secrets? Surface is a story of self- discovery which contemplates if we are pre-programmed to become who we are, or if we choose our own identity.
