Per an account in Deadlinethe show is being marketed as “fairytale for grown-ups” and is based on Victor LaValle’s bestselling 2017 novel of the same name. Stanfield stars as Apollo, a father and bookseller, while Herring plays William Wheeler, a man who befriends Apollo. No release date has been confirmed for the show. 

This year has seen Future Islands add more dates to their lengthy tour of the UK and Europe. Dubbed the ‘Calling Out In Space’ tour, it is supporting the band’s 2020 album As Long As You Are, which they didn’t get to tour for obvious reasons.
