Samuel L. Jackson in “The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray”: Start date announced –

In the spring of 2021, Apple TV + announced the order for a new miniseries with none other than Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson in the lead role. The start date for “The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray” is now: The streaming service will publish the first two episodes of the six-part drama on March 11th, followed by a new episode on Fridays.

The series about family, memory and legacy is based on a novel by author Walter Mosley, who adapted the material himself for Apple TV + and acts as executive producer. Samuel L. Jackson plays Ptolemy Gray, a man suffering from dementia who has been forgotten by his family, friends, and even himself.

After losing more and more of his memories, his family has already written him off. The 91-year-old’s only connection to the outside world was his great-nephew. But when he was killed in a shooting, Ptolemy sank more and more into loneliness and no longer allowed anyone to get near him. He threatens to slide even deeper into lonely dementia.

He is then handed over to the orphaned teenage girl Robyn (Dominique Fishback), who takes care of him from now on. Suddenly there is a glimmer of hope: You learn of a treatment that can restore Ptolemy’s memory damaged by dementia. Together they embark on a journey that reveals harrowing truths about the past, present and future. In addition to the possibility of preserving his knowledge, Ptolemy also tries to solve the death of his nephew.

The original book is from 2011. Ramin Bahrani (“Treadstone”, “Fahrenheit 451”) directed the adaptation of the series. Other leading roles are Cynthia Kaye McWilliams, Damon Gupton, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Walton Goggins and Omar Miller.
