The Essex Serpent is almost here! Coming out on May 13th on Apple TV+, this limited series by See-Saw Films tells the story of Cora Seaborne (Claire Danes), who escapes an abusive marriage to travel to a small town on the Essex coast of England, where a recent earthquake has unearthed numerous fossils.
