Upcoming series Are You Sleeping starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer has received a 10-series order from Apple.

Are You Sleeping was created and written by Nichelle Tramble Spellman (The Good Wife, Justified), and is based on the true-crime novel by Kathleen Barber.  The series will provide a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true-crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.

The series was originally put in development at Apple’s video programming unit. It is the first project bought by Apple to be developed for straight-to-series consideration to get a green light.  Spencer will serve as executive producer of the series.

Spencer recently starred in the Oscar winning film The Shape of Water, and has starred in award winning films such as Hidden Figures and The Help.
