The news serves as a reunion for Arquette and Stiller who previously worked together on the 2018 limited Showtime series “Escape at Dannemora.” Arquette starred in the series which Ben Stiller directed and executive produced. Stiller will direct the first episode of “High Desert.”
“High Desert” follows Peggy (Arquette), a former addict, who decides to make a new start after the death of her beloved mother with whom she lived in the small desert town of Yucca Valley, California, and makes a life-changing decision to become a private investigator. Apple did not provide a release date for “High Desert.”
The series is created and written by Nancy Fichman, Katie Ford (“Miss Congeniality” films) and Jennifer Hoppe, who will also serve as executive producers alongside Arquette and Stiller.
