Here’s everything you need to know about severity and how to watch it on Apple TV+.
What is severity about?
Created by Dan Erickson, severity follows Mark, played by Adam Scott, and a cast of employees at Lumon Industries who elect to participate in the “severance procedure” that effectively severs the memories of employees between their work life and personal life. Severed workers can’t access their personal memories while at work, nor their work memories at home. In the first episode, Mark is confronted by someone in his personal life he thinks is a stranger, but is actually a former coworker from Lumon. This interaction sets off the show’s episodic series of thought-provoking and fascinating moments.
The series has a stacked cast, including Scott (Big Little Lies, Step Brothers), John Turturro (The Big Lebowski, batman), Academy Award-winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter, Catch Me If You Can) and Academy Award-winner Patricia Arquette (boyhood, TrueRomance). While this is creator Erickson’s first TV project, six of the nine episodes in the seasons are directed by Ben Stiller (Zoolander, Escape at Dannemora).
