On Thursday, those who subscribe to Apple TV+ will be able to begin streaming "Servant." What do we know about the new project from M. Night Shyamalan ahead of its premiere date?

According to IMDb, the plot centers around a young couple, Dorothy Turner (Lauren Ambrose) and Sean Turner (Toby Kebbell), whose newborn baby passes away due to health complications. As part of their process to deal with the trauma, they replace their baby with a lifelike doll. Over time, the Turners take the therapy to new places as they eventually bring in a nanny to care for the doll. "Game of Thrones" actress Nell Tiger Free and "Harry Potter" actor Rupert Grint also star in the new series as Leanne Grayson and Julian Pearce.

When speaking about the new Apple TV+ show during a Q&A panel at New York Comic Con, IGN reports that Shyamalan revealed he had become interested in walking the line between horror and comedy in his work. Regarding the central story of "Servant," he said, "That premise is so tragic and weird and scary, but it's also oddly and inappropriately funny."

Continuing, he shared that tone "where you're scared and laughing at the same time" had been something he had already incorporated into previous movies, such as 2015's "The Visit" and 2016's "Split."

Another characteristic that he has been weaving into his recent work is the idea that a story could take place in one location, which is the case with "Servant" due to the fact that everything happens within one city townhome.

"I do a lot of contained stories now. It's very practical. It's something I can execute at a high level. So the other thing that's really unique about this show is that it never leaves the one location. The entire show, the entire time, is always in one location," the director revealed.

As for how long he envisions the show lasting, he said that he could easily see it lasting six years. "Tony [Basgallop], who wrote the show, came up with an amazing premise, which is that we're going to do a half-hour thriller. In my head, we have a sense of the story, where it's going to go, and in my head it's 60 episodes. That's how long it's going to take us to get you guys to this place and finish this story."

"Servant" will begin streaming on Apple TV+ on Thursday, Nov. 28.
