Mourning the death of his wife, Mark S (Scott) willingly undergoes severance, a surgical procedure championed by his employer, which leaves him unable to access any personal memories at work, and the opposite when he’s out of of the office.
And he’s not the only one. Yet the employees’ enormous sacrifice in the interest of ever greater productivity does little to impress the boss (Arquette) who has always looked down on them.
A semi-regular series of perks keeps them sweet, and it’s business as usual until Mark has an encounter with a stranger who claims to have been his best friend at work. And so the illusion begins to unravel, but how can they break free from their water-cooler prison?
Dropping its first two episodes on Friday, February 18, Severance skewers both exploitative working practices and those of us who have unknowingly fallen within their grip. Available as a part of Apple TV Plus’ 7-day free trial (opens in new tab) for new customers, find out how to watch Severance below.
