Apple is working on a six-episode limited series called "In With The Devil," which is set to star Ray Liotta, Taron Egerton, and Paul Walter Hauser, reports Deadline.

"In With The Devil" is based on the James Keene and Hillel Levin novel "In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption," the true crime story of a football star who ends up in prison and is tasked with coaxing a confession out of a serial killer to get released.

Egerton, known for the "Kingsman" movies, will play James Keene, the football star who gets in trouble with the law and thrown in prison with no chance of parole. Hauser, known for "Cobra Kai" and "BlacKkKlansman," will play the serial killer whom Egerton attempts to befriend. Liotta will play the role of a Chicago policeman who is also Keene's father.

The limited series will be told through the relationship between the two prisoners, "exploring the lengths that people will go to in order to seek redemption, if true absolution is ever really possible, and if so, at what costs."

Apple Studios is producing the series, while Michael. R. Roskam will direct.

In other Apple TV+ news, Apple today announced that "Dear..." has been renewed for a second season. The unscripted series profiles celebrities through letters sent to them by people whose lives have been impacted by their work.

The second season will feature actress Viola Davis, musician Selena Gomez, actor and author Jane Fonda, filmmaker Ava DuVernay, singer Billy Porter, journalist Andre Leon Talley, actress Sandra Oh, waterman Laird Hamilton, and NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

OOOOOOH, this looks GOOD!! FINALLY! Apple has been in dire need of a good crime series. Defending Jacob was great, but there hasn't been much other than that.

I don't understand the entertainment industry's obsession with serial killers, and just murder in general. It's really not fun to watch and I don't know how people don't get anxiety from this. Atv+ has some good stuff, but especially the nature documentaries and the babies one - they're far ahead of anything even by the BBC, let alone the Netflix-produced sensationalist stuff.

I find the serial killers stuff fun to watch, and the documentaries to be horribly boring.

To each his or her own.

Another one of Apple TV+ limited appeal pieces just like that of Dear Apple documentaries.

I agree with you to a big extent. I think it depends a lot where you are born... I have been a bit surrounded by violence and death in the earlier years of my life so I sometimes don’t get how people joke or even laugh about it.
However, for what is worth, it’s good that’s out there because it truly is out of the ordinary and it’s good to know, especially in the case of documentaries, to better understand what happens because absolutely anybody can take a left turn at some point and end up with a serious crime in their hands. It’s not like these criminals have a different blood running or don’t breath O2 just like l everybody else.

The big issue for me is when it’s glorified, I find that distasteful in so many levels, however he only crime related on ATV+ that I have watched was Defending Jacob and it is serious, quite serious.
