Sugar – Apple TV+ drop the trailer for Colin Farrell’s new detective series

Posted Filed under

The star leads the show as a private investigator on the case of a mysterious disappearance. 

While he ruffled feathers in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, and is soon to return to the role for a follow up series, Colin Farrell is making another foray back onto the small screen. This time, it’s without the Penguin’s prosthetics as he takes the lead in Sugar.

John Sugar is a hard-boiled, no nonsense private detective who feels like he comes from another age. The show seems to be steeped in the genre and naturally, Sugar appears to have a troubled past, but this looks like one to watch.


Here’s what Apple TV+ say about Sugar:

Sugar is a contemporary, unique take on one of the most popular and significant genres in literary, motion picture and television history: the private detective story. Academy Award nominee Colin Farrell stars as John Sugar, an American private investigator on the heels of the mysterious disappearance of Olivia Siegel, the beloved granddaughter of legendary Hollywood producer Jonathan Siegel. As Sugar tries to determine what happened to Olivia, he will also unearth Siegel family secrets; some very recent, others long-buried.

Starring alongside Colin Farrell are Kirby (The Sandman), Amy Ryan (The Wire), James Cromwell (Succession) and Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad). Plus, Dennis Boutsikaris (Better Call Saul), Nate Corddry (Mindhunter), Sydney Chandler (Don’t Worry Darling), and Alex Hernandez (Invasion).

The show is created by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend) who also co-writes and executive produces. The writing team also includes Donald Joh, Sam Catlin and David Rosen. The directors are Adam Arkin and Fernando Meirelles.

Sugar debuts on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes on Friday, 5 April. Subsequent episodes land weekly.
