Jake Gyllenhaal is Caught in a Deadly Affair in “Presumed Innocent” Trailer

Jake Gyllenhaal is in some serious trouble in the first trailer for Apple TV+’s new limited series Presumed Innocent. 

Gyllenhaal stars as Rusty Sabich, a chief deputy prosecutor in Chicago’s Prosecuting Attorney’s office who has all the trappings of a successful, highly well-adjusted life: an important job, a loving wife, Barbara (played by Ruth Negga), and a family. But Sabich finds himself irresistibly drawn to his colleague, Carolyn (Renate Reinsve). The trailer sets the stage for what happens next—once Rusty and Carolyn begin an affair, unlocking something in the chief deputy prosecutor, he feels himself growing increasingly obsessed with her. Then things take a dark turn; Carolyn is murdered, and Rusty’s affair with her makes him a person of interest.

Presumed Innocent has a starry cast and comes from some very bright lights. Gyllenhaal and Negga are joined by a fantastic ensemble, including Bill Camp, O-T Fagbenle, Chase Infiniti, Nana Mensah, Renate Reinsve, Peter Sarsgaard, Kingston Rumi Southwick, and Elizabeth Marvel. Gyllenhaal also serves as executive producer alongside J.J. Abrams in a series from television veteran David E. Kelly, the man who brought us the recent scorching crime drama Big Little Lies.

Presumed Innocent is based on the novel of the same name by Scott Turow. Check out the trailer below. Presumed Innocent arrives on Apple TV+ on June 12.
