Rashida Jones Is Friends With a Robot in Apple TV+’s Sci-Fi Mystery Sunny — Watch a New Trailer

Rashida Jones needs a friend in her new Apple TV+ series… and she’ll settle for a synthetic one.

The Parks and Recreation veteran plays a lonely woman who befriends a robot in the sci-fi mystery Sunny, which premieres Wednesday, July 10 on the streamer. Apple TV+ has also released a new trailer, which you can watch above.

Sunny stars Jones as Suzie, “an American woman living in Kyoto, Japan, whose life is upended when her husband and son disappear in a mysterious plane crash,” per the official description. In the trailer, Suzie is in a haze following the loss of her family. (“Things have been weird,” she admits.) To help with her grief, she’s given a chipper domestic robot named Sunny that was made by her husband’s electronics company, with the robot immediately going in for a hug.

Suzie is reluctant at first, but eventually, she and the robot “develop an unexpected friendship, as together they uncover the dark truth of what really happened to Suzie’s family, becoming dangerously enmeshed in a world Suzie never knew existed.” That leads to a kidnapping, mysterious new villains and what appears to be violence, with Sunny’s treads tracking blood across a floor. Suzie isn’t deterred, though, declaring: “I’m gonna find out what happened to my family.”

Along with Jones, Sunny’s cast includes Hidetoshi Nishijima, Joanna Sotomura and Judy Ongg. Katie Robbins (The Affair) created the series — based on the book Dark Manual by Colin O’Sullivan — and serves as showrunner.
