Taron Egerton is once again teaming up with Apple to star in the drama series ‘Firebug’, created by Dennis Lehane.
The series will follow a troubled detective and an enigmatic arson investigator (Egerton) as they pursue the trails of two serial arsonists. Though fictionalized, the series is inspired by some of the true events presented in Truth Media’s “Firebug” podcast, which was hosted by Kary Antholis.
Written and executive produced by Lehane. Other executive producers include Egerton and Richard Plepler through Eden Productions, which is under a multi-year deal at Apple TV+; Bradley Thomas and Dan Friedkin through Imperative Entertainment; Antholis for Crime Story Media; and Marc Smerling for Truth Podcasting Corp.
Egerton, Lehane, Plepler, Antholis and Thomas at Apple TV+, previously worked together on ‘Black Bird,’ the limited series that debuted on the streamer in July.
Egerton’s upcoming projects include Apple TV+’s 2023 film ‘Tetris’ as game publisher Henk Rogers and Netflix’s upcoming action thriller film ‘Carry-On.’
