Presumed Innocent, the upcoming Apple TV+ mystery series starring Jake Gyllenhaal, has revealed its first look.

The series, based on Scott Turow’s 1987 novel, follows Rusty Sabich (Gyllenhaal), a prosecutor who is charged with the murder of his colleague and mistress, Carolyn Polhemus (Renate Reinsve).

Ahead of the show's launch on June 12, Apple TV+ has released the first trailer for the series, with the minute-long teaser showcasing Rusty's affair with Carolyn and the deterioration of his relationship with wife Barbara (Ruth Negga).

Presumed Innocent will consist of eight parts, which will, as per the logline, explore "obsession, sex, politics, and the power and limits of love, as the accused fights to hold his family and marriage together."

In addition to the aforementioned trio, the cast also includes Bill Camp, Elizabeth Marvel, Peter Sarsgaard and Lily Rabe, with David E Kelley serving as creator and writer. Anne Sewitsky will direct three episodes, with Greg Yaitanes helming the remaining five parts.

The novel has been adapted before, with Harrison Ford starring as Rusty in Alan J Pakula's 1990 film. Greta Scacchi starred as the doomed Carolyn, with Jeffrey Wright also making his film debut as an attorney prosecutor.

Gyllenhaal recently revived another established property for a streaming service, with the star collaborating with Doug Liman in Prime Video's remake of Road House. The film saw Gyllenhaal take over the role of Dalton from Patrick Swayze, charting his journey from UFC fighter to bouncer.

The remake received mixed reviews upon its release, with Digital Spy writing that the new version was a "compilation of lazy action-movie tropes that occasionally displays some of the enjoyable silliness of the original."

Presumed Innocent will premiere on Apple TV+ on June 12.
