Apple TV+ just dropped the first look of its new limited series The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey starring Black Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson.
The series' character Ptolemy Grey is an ailing older man who is forgotten by his loved ones and begins to give up on himself. Without a caretaker and trusted confidant, he begins to fall into a deep depression on account of his rapidly progressing dementia. Alongside Jackson's Grey is BAFTA Award nominee Dominique Fishback, who plays an orphaned teenager named Robyn who takes care of him.
The two later discover that a treatment is available that has the ability to restore Ptolemy’s memories that are affected by his dementia. As a result, the pair embark on a journey to recall truths about the past, present and future.
The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey also stars Cynthia Kaye McWilliams, Damon Gupton, Marsha Stephanie Blake, and Omar Miller.
