Jennifer Garner and J.J. Abrams Reunite for Apple Limited Series
Yet another star-studded project is heading to Apple's upcoming streaming service, and it features the reunion of one of our favorite TV pairings.
Jennifer Garner is re-teaming with her "Alias" creator, J.J. Abrams, for a new limited series for Apple. Variety reports that the project is called "My Glory Was I Had Such Friends," based on the 2017 memoir of the same name by Amy Silverstein, and "follows a group of women who supported Silverstein as she waited for a second life-saving heart transplant."
Garner is set to star, and Abrams will produce through his Bad Robot banner, in conjunction with Warner Bros. Television. Karen Croner ("Admission," "One True Thing") is writing and producing the adaptation, and previously adapted "The Tribes of Palos Verdes," which also starred Garner. Silverstein will also serve as a producer.
Though the circumstances surrounding the launch of Apple's streaming service are still up in the air, that hasn't stopped the tech giant from acquiring some top-tier talent. Other projects in the works include a morning show drama starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell; a fantasy series featuring Jason Momoa; a Chris Evans crime drama; and new work from Damien Chazelle, M. Night Shyamalan, and the goddess of TV herself, Oprah.
