Annette Bening has signed on to star in the upcoming Peacock limited series “Apples Never Fall,” based on the Liane Moriarty novel of the same name.

A synopsis reads that the series: “centers on the Delaneys, who from the outside appear to be an enviably contented family. Former tennis coaches Joy (Bening) and Stan are parents to four adult children. After decades of marriage, they have finally sold their famed tennis academy and are ready to start what should be the golden years of their lives. But after Joy disappears, her children are forced to re-examine their parents’ marriage and their family history with fresh eyes.”

The role will mark one of the few TV roles Bening has had on a series; she is primarily known for her film roles, having earned four Academy Award nominations to date for her work in “The Grifters,” “American Beauty,” “Being Julia,” and “The Kids Are Alright.” She is also a nine-time Golden Globe nominee, winning for “Being Julia” and “The Kids Are Alright.”
