“Set in high-end San Francisco, ‘Surface’ stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“The Morning Show”) as Sophie, a woman who has suffered a traumatic head injury that has left her with extreme memory loss, believed to be a result of a suicide attempt. As Sophie embarks on a quest to put the pieces of her life back together with the help of her husband and friends, she begins to question whether or not the truth she is told is the truth she has lived. Through twists and turns and an unexpected love triangle, this sexy, elevated thriller asks: What if you woke up one day and didn’t know your own secrets? ‘Surface’ is a story of self-discovery which contemplates if we are pre-programmed to become who we are, or if we choose our own identity.”

Other details

The first three episodes of the eight-episode series will be airing on the day of the premiere. Following that, a new episode will air every Friday every week. Mbatha-Raw, Lauren Neustadter, Sam Miller, Veronica West, and Reese Witherspoon all work as executive producers.


After Sophie recovers from her suicide attempt, she loses all memory of her life, including the events leading up to her ocean fall. Sophie tries everything to remember her past—from regression therapy to self-investigation—but nothing makes sense. She also doubts the details and circumstances leading up to the suicide. It’s a woman’s determined attempt to rebuild her life.
