When Julianne Moore first decided to sign on for Lisey’s Story, Apple TV+’s upcoming limited series from the mind of author Stephen King, she went straight to the source himself.

“He was so wonderful and welcoming and excited…,” the Academy Award winner tells TVLine. “He had been very ill and close to death but recovered, and when he came home, he found out that his wife had cleaned out his office, so it made him feel like he didn’t even exist in that world anymore. So that was his inspiration for the story: ‘What would happen if I suddenly disappeared from my own life?’”

Enter Moore’s widow character, Lisey, who suffers a massive setback after losing her famous novelist husband Scott Landon (The Knick‘s Clive Owen). When we first meet her (the series premieres its first two episodes Friday, June 4, with new installments dropping weekly), she’s still very much in grief. Those feelings are exacerbated by the failing mental health of her sister Amanda (The Family‘s Joan Allen), the emergence of a frightening and violent stalker of Scott’s, and a posthumous treasure hunt left behind by her husband.
