What’s the twist, that you’re actually watching Netflix?

I have free Apple TV + for 1 year. The only show from them I'm caught up on is The Morning Show. I haven't had the chance to see this or See yet. There's just too many streaming shows to keep up with.

Just over two months since its debut, AppleTV+ finally hit the Hollywood big time today with its first high-profile lawsuit.

Along with director M. Night Shyamalan, the streaming arm of the Tim Cook-run tech behemoth is facing claims that its Tony Basgallop created Servant series lifts a little too liberally from Francesca Gregorini’s 2013 film The Truth About Emanuel.

“Servant is a wholesale copy of Plaintiff Francesca Gregorini’s 2013 feature film The Truth About Emanuel,” declares a copyright infringement and injunction seeking lawsuit filed today in federal court in California (read it here).

“As demonstrated by the long list of key parallels catalogued in Section III(C) of this Complaint, the misappropriation is not a mere borrowed premise, idea or story,” the jury seeking and graphically detailed complaint adds of the film that opened at the Sundance Film Festival seven years ago. “Mr. Shyamalan has gone so far as to appropriate not just the plot of Emanuel—but also its use of cinematic language, creating a substantially similar feeling, mood, and theme.”

Seeking to shut the already renewed Servant down, the lawsuit wants widespread but unspecified damages as well. Interestingly, amidst the claims that “both works use magical realism to create an otherworldly mood” and more detailed allegations, one difference between Servant and Emanuel that the paperwork notes is the shift in gender. Emanuel was made by women and Servant is made by men, and that brings an “an added layer of sexism” to the AppleTV+ series.

“Servant’s similarities to Emanuel are so pervasive, and so grounded in my client’s highly creative and uniquely personal artistic choices, that the idea they might have resulted from coincidence is preposterous,” noted Gregorini’s lead lawyer David Erikson in a separate statement to Deadline on Wednesday. “Watching the two works leaves no doubt that my client’s copyrighted expression was cavalierly misappropriated—easily meeting the standard for copyright infringement.”

As more new series debuts loom for later this week on the November 1 launched service, Apple declined to comment on the Servant legal action when contacted by Deadline today. The psychological horror show premiered on November 28, 2019.

Shyamalan and Basgallop EP Servant with Ashwin Rajan, Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black and Steve Tisch. Taylor Latham and Patrick Markey serve as co-executive producers.

Now I have to watch Truth About Emanuel. It's on Youtube for free with ads.

Season 2 starts tomorrow.


I thought Season 1 was ok, but it very much felt like a set up for a show with a larger scope. Hopefully, Season 2 can deliver.

Nice. Looking forward to this returning next month though I preferred S1 to S2 -- glad to see it was renewed for a 4th season. Lauren Ambrose is great in this.

This is good news because there will be an end to the story. IMO S2 was a drop off from S1 but still liked it.

I bailed on season 2. Too inconsistent a show for my taste. Nice that he gets to do his full story arc but he is all over the place with this show just like he is in his movies. Sad because Ambrose was amazing in this and the potter kid was good too. I liked the characters development in the first season but it lost its way for me early in season 2.
