The Lexington Letter
When does the cost of staying silent become greater than the price of speaking up? A desperate woman risks everything to expose the sinister company at the heart of Severance, the thrilling Apple Original series from director and executive producer Ben Stiller and creator Dan Erickson, now streaming on Apple TV+, about a daring experiment in “work-life balance.”
From the minds behind the series, this is the story of Lumon Industries employee Margaret “Peg” Kincaid. When Peg gets hired at Lumon, she undergoes Severance, a surgical procedure pitched by the company as an effortless way to separate her personal and work lives. Everyone has their reasons for wanting the easy solution Severance promises, but when Peg realizes that not all is as it seems at the company, she uncovers a reality that’s far worse than the problems she wanted to escape.
At the heart of this story, Peg’s shocking confession reveals the darkest side of corporate America. It raises a chilling question: How far will Lumon Industries go to protect its secrets?
Available for free, and exclusively on Apple Books.
1st. This is the best show on TV, hands down.
Maybe I’m just too deep into the woods…but my theory. This show speaks of our 3-D existence. Why do we keep choosing to come to this earth/realm/dimension (the office/Lumon)? We know there’s something else out there, but we can’t quite put our finger on what it is (the Severenced “outie” experience). We spend countless years doing pointless things only to obtain pointless trinkets (MDR number sorting and Waffle Parties/finger traps). We’re broken into groups with fear/chaos being the fulcrum that prevents our unity (Lumon departments/scary backstories to maintain separation). Unity would spark a global conversation. What if we realized war/division/fear is not the answer?
Best show ever
This show is insanely good. Side content like this is great too. Please keep it coming
I think we need a few more of these. Severance has been such a pleasure to watch with the unique storytelling. Would
Love more companion pieces.
