The 32-year-old actor, who recently has made a breakthrough into television with the British sitcom Sick Note alongside Nick Frost (Into the Badlands) and the Crackle adaptation of the Guy Ritchie hit Snatch, joins Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and Nell Tiger Free (Game of Thrones) for the series.

The as-of-yet unnamed series will have 10 half-hour episodes, and Shyamalan is slated to direct the first episode. The director’s production company, Blinding Edge Pictures, will be producing the series, with Shyamalan and Ashwin Rajan as the executive producers. Escape Artists’ Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black and Steve Tisch will also be executive producing the show alongside Taylor Latham, who will serve as the co-executive producer.

Shyamalan was the executive producer for Wayward Pines, a mind-bending mystery drama that aired on Fox in 2015 and 2016. It was cancelled just recently, which came to no surprise after being absent on TV for nearly two years. Coming off of the critical and commercial success of the psychological horror-thriller Split and with Apple’s confident backing, Shymalan might just be reinvigorated enough to make his second chance at a TV show more fruitful.
