Toby Kebbell and Rupert Grint join Shyamalan thriller series

Kong: Skull Island Toby Kebbell

It's been about three and a half months since we heard that Lauren Ambrose and Nell Tiger Free will be starring in the untitled psychological thriller series Tony Basgallop and M. Night Shyamalan are executive producing for the Apple streaming service, and now a couple more casting announcements have finally come along.

Apple has ordered ten half-hour episodes of the series, which was created by Basgallop. Shyamalan is directing the first episode. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but we do know that the story has something to do with 

parents Dorothy and Sean Turner, who have hired young nanny Leanne to help care for their newborn child.

Ambrose is taking on the role of Dorothy, with Free playing the nanny Leanne. Joining them in the cast is Toby Kebbell of KONG: SKULL ISLAND (pictured above) as professional chef Sean Turner, and Rupert Grint of the HARRY POTTER franchise as Dorothy's younger brother Julian.

This show now has a solid cast in place, and I'm anxious to hear more about the story. Is this something along the lines of THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, or is that speculation way off base?

Ashwin Rajan, Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black, and Steve Tisch are executive producing the series alongside Basgallop and Shyamalan. Taylor Latham is co-executive producing.

We'll keep you updated on this series as more information (like a title) is made available.
