Apple TV+ is teasing the new show Bad Monkey, with the streaming service sharing first-look photos for the series featuring Vince Vaughn, set to premiere in August.

Based on Carl Hiaasen’s bestelling novel, Bad Monkey tells the story of Andrew Yancy (Vaughn) who has been bounced from the Miami Police department and is now a health inspector in the Keys. But after stumbling upon a case that begins with a human arm fished up by tourists, he realizes that if he can prove murder, he’ll be back in. He just needs to get past a trove of Floridian oddballs and one bad monkey.

The TV adaptation of Bad Monkey is developed by Bill Lawrence (Ted Lasso, Shrinking), who serves as showrunner and executive produces with Vaughn. The cast also includes L. Scott Caldwell, Rob Delaney, Meredith Hagner, Natalie Martinez, Alex Moffat, Michelle Monaghan, Ronald Peet and Jodie Turner-Smith, with John Ortiz, Zach Braff and Charlotte Lawrence to appear as guest stars.

Bad Monkey will have a two-episode premiere Aug. 14 on Apple TV+, with new episodes to follow every Wednesday.
