Based on the acclaimed novel by best-selling author Walter Mosley, who has adapted the story for the screen and serves as executive producer, this gripping six-episode series which addresses family, memory, and legacy stars Jackson, BAFTA Award nominee Dominique Fishback (“Judas and the Black Messiah”), Cynthia Kaye McWilliams (“Coyote,” “Real Husbands of Hollywood”), Damon Gupton (“Black Lightning,” “Bates Motel”), Marsha Stephanie Blake (“I Am Your Woman,” “When They See Us”), Walton Goggins (“Justified,” “The Unicorn”), and Omar Benson Miller (“The Unicorn,” “Ballers”).
Jackson stars as Ptolemy Grey, an ailing man forgotten by his family, by his friends, and by even himself. Suddenly left without his trusted caretaker and on the brink of sinking even deeper into a lonely dementia, Ptolemy is assigned to the care of orphaned teenager Robyn (Fishback). When they learn about a treatment that can restore Ptolemy’s dementia-addled memories, it begins a journey toward shocking truths about the past, present, and future.
“The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey” will debut globally with the first two episodes this coming Friday, March 11 on Apple TV+, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
