Apple has signed Oscar-winner Julia Roberts to star in an upcoming Apple TV+ drama based on Laura Dave's anticipated novel of the same name.

The novel, which won't be released until May of 2021, follows a woman who forms an unexpected relationship with her sixteen-year-old daughter as they search for the truth as to why her husband has mysteriously disappeared. Roberts will star as the lead.

The limited series will air exclusively on Apple TV+ and produced by Reese Witherspoon's production company, Hello Sunshine. Hello Sunshine also produced Apple TV+'s "The Morning Show."

According to Deadline, "The Last Thing He Told Me" is created by Laura Dave and co-created by her husband, Oscar-winner Josh Singer. It will be executive produced by Roberts, Singer, Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter in association with Hello Sunshine, and Marisa Yeres Gill and Lisa Gillan in association with Red Om Films.

"The Last Thing He Told Me" marks another ambitious acquisition from Apple TV+, and will be joining shows such as "Tehran" and "Losing Alice."
