About the series
Disclaimer is based on the novel of the same name by Renee Knight. According to IMDb, it revolves around Ravenscroft who is a successful television documentary journalist. Her works have been about revealing the underlying transgressions within the structures of respected institutions.
One day, Ravenscroft finds a novel written by a widower (Kevin Kline) and is horrified to recognise herself as a key character. The novel depicts a harrowing storyline, which she had hoped was buried in the past.
Further information regarding the release date and trailer is not yet available.

Cuarón is the writer, director and executive producer for Disclaimer as part of his overall deal with Apple TV+. Emmanuel Lubezki and Bruno Delbonnel will join as directors of photography on the project.
Production house Esperanto Filmoj’s Gabriela Rodriguez will be the executive producer along with Anonymous Content’s David Levine, Dawn Olmstead and Steve Golin. Blanchett is also the executive producer and Knight serves as co-executive producer.
Hoyeon’s stellar performance in Squid Game as a North Korean defector Kang Sae-byeok, earned her global accolades, along with the SAG Award for Female Actor in a Drama Series (2022). Recently, French luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton announced her as its new global Maison Ambassador.
