CHICAGO — On the Dean’s List/A-List interview for today, one of the stars of the upcoming Apple TV+ series, “Essex Serpent.”

Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes star in the story of a London widow who moves to Essex and forms a bond of science and skepticism with a local pastor to investigate reports of a mythical serpent.

In a Zoom chat last week, Claire compared working on a show like this versus her multi-Emmy award winning “Homeland.”  

“Essex Serpent” drops on Apple TV+ on May 13.
