‘Bullet Train’ star Brian Tyree Henry is set to star in the Apple TV drama series ‘Sinking Spring.’

The eight-episode drug ring drama is based on Dennis Tafoya’s book ‘Dope Thief’ which the series will centre around longtime Philly friends and delinquents who pose as DEA agents to rob an unknown house in the countryside, only to have their small-time grift become a life-and-death enterprise, as they unwittingly reveal and unravel the biggest hidden narcotics corridor on the Eastern seaboard.

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ scribe Peter Craig has written the series. Ridley Scott will executive produce and direct the series.

Scott will executive produce alongside his Scott Free Productions banner colleagues David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan and Clayton Krueger. Henry, who has the fourth and final season of ‘Atlanta’ due in September, will also executive produce. Author Tafoya will be a consulting producer.
