An old world in a new spin

Colin Farrell is hitting the streets of Los Angeles in a role like no other! In 'Sugar,' premiering this Friday on Apple TV+, Farrell embodies "John Sugar", a private detective with a twist. But don't expect any ordinary sleuthing here—"Sugar's" got a style all his own, complete with a fascination for film noir heroes that goes beyond mere admiration.

'Sugar' is shrouded in mystery, so much so that even hinting at the plot might spoil the surprise. Created by Mark Protosevich, known for 'I Am Legend' and the 'Oldboy' remake, this series is a love letter to noir, filled with dark alleys and darker secrets.

From its black-and-white Tokyo prologue reminiscent of Akira Kurosawa's 'High and Low' to a plot that echoes 'Chinatown,' 'Sugar' promises a detective story with a twist.

The series doesn't just pay homage to noir through its protagonist. James Cromwell stars as "Jonathan Siegel," a legendary Hollywood producer whose missing granddaughter sets "Sugar" on a path that intersects with some of cinema's most iconic tales.

It's a narrative that ties together the glamour and grime of Los Angeles, with nods to 'L.A. Confidential' and the city's notorious underbelly.
