How far will you go to get the life you desire? That’s the question asked by Israeli TV series Losing Alice, starring Ayelet Zurer as a 48-year-old film director who feels her professional profile has faded while she took a step back to raise her kids.
After a brief encounter on a train, Alice becomes obsessed with 24-year-old screenwriter Sophie (Lihi Kornowski), who just happens to have written the movie Alice’s husband, David (Gal Toren), is starring in.
When Alice gets the opportunity to direct the project, she can’t say no. She soon finds herself losing her way as she chases power, relevance and success.
The series also serves as a love letter to the still all-too-rare female director.
Losing Alice is created, written and directed by Sigal Avin, who also serves as executive producer alongside Yoni Paran, Nadav Palti and Tami Mozes Borovitz. The series will be available to stream globally for the first time ever on Apple TV+ in a new co-production deal with Israel’s Dori Media productions in association with HOT, and stars Zurer, Kornowski, Toren, Yossi Marshak, Shai Avivi and Chelli Goldenberg.
The first three episodes of Losing Alice premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, Jan. 22, with the remaining five episodes dropping each Friday after that.
