WATCH: Apple Chilling ‘Servant’ Official Trailer

Apple has released the creepy trailer for its M. Night Shyamalan series “Servant.”

The half-hour thriller series, exec produced and directed by the “Sixth Sense” and “Split” helmer, premieres on Nov. 28 on Apple TV Plus and centers around a Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home.

The trailer shows Lauren Ambrose and Toby Kebbell as the grieving couple living in a grand townhouse, who hire Nell Tiger Free’s character to be the nanny to their baby. However, the terrifying twist seems to be that baby Jericho died at 13 weeks old, and that Ambrose and Kebbell have replaced him with an eerily similar looking doll version.

WATCH: This Is Why You Will Buy Ipad Instead of MacBook 

Much of the attention after yesterday’s Apple product event has rightly gone to all the new iPhones , Apple’s longtime cash cow, and whether the company’s new subscription services can help it pivot to a future where individual phone sales are far less important .

Unless you’re getting a work-provided laptop or someone who knows they need the power that a traditional Mac computer can supply, there aren’t many compelling reasons to spend thousands on a new MacBook. The new iPads are lighter, cheaper, and for most people, probably a lot simpler to use. Couple that with the supercomputer you’re likely carrying around in your pocket, and you probably have all the computing power you’ll ever need.
