Adam Scott has left Pawnee for good.
In the new trailer for Ben Stiller‘s Apple TV+ series Severance, the Parks & Recreation actor portrays Mark Scout, a Lumon Industries employee who agrees to undergo a procedure called Severance to achieve a better work-life balance.
According to the trailer, a Severance procedure surgically divides memories between an employee’s work life and personal life. Before going under the knife, Mark says in an oral contract, “I acknowledge that once the procedure is complete, I will be unable to access my personal memories whilst on the Severed floor, nor will I retain work memories when I return home at the end of the day. I make these statements freely.”
Then, one day, Mark’s best friend in the office is gone, making him doubt everything he thought he knew. “This daring experiment in ‘work-life balance’ is called into question,” Apple teases, “as Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work… and of himself.”
