Delaney has written, created and executive produced the series, led by Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Morning Show) and David Oyelowo (Selma).

Mbatha-Raw stars as Jane, a young woman who is afforded the opportunity to move into a spectacular, ultra-minimalist house designed by a mysterious architect, played by Oyelowo.

In order to live there, however, she must abide by the architect’s list of onerous rules. With the house beginning to take an unnerving hold over Jane, she makes the disturbing discovery that the previous occupant, Emma, died in the house.
