In Apple TV+ Series 'Sugar,' Kirby Howell-Baptiste will play Colin Farrell ...

Kirby Howell-Baptiste's career is winding down, and we're here to help. Deadline has just announced that she will play the female cast member in AppleTV+'s upcoming series Sugar. Colin Farrell has previously been announced.

Sugar's producers are still keeping key details hidden, including plot and character details, as has become a standard practice with high-profile projects. However, the show, which will be set in Los Angeles, has been described as a "genre-bending contemporary take on the private detective story." Back in June, Apple ordered the series to release only a few details, including the fact that Farrell was on board in the dual role of its lead and executive producer.

Howell-Baptiste began her career with small roles in TV programs and short films, earning much-deserved recognition for her roles in ABC's Downward Dog and the critically acclaimed British spy thriller series, Killing Eve. Her acting would open the door to other opportunities, including recurring roles in The Good Place and Veronica Mars.

Cruella, Queenpins, and Silent Night are some of Howell-Baptiste's other credits. She will next appear in the horror film Mr. Harrigan's Phone, adapted from a Stephen King novel of the same name.

Mark Protosevich, known for his roles on I Am Legend (2007), Poseidon (2006), and Thor (2011), will direct the series from the director's chair, alongside Oscar and Emmy nominees Simon Kinberg (Invasion) of Genre Films, Scott Greenberg, and Chip Vucelich.

AppleTV+ has yet to announce a Sugar release date. Until then, check out our recent interview with Kirby Howell-Baptiste below:
