Here's the first spooky look at M. Night Shyamalan's new TV show

Might have a twist or two, you'd think.

Take professional wrestling, for instance. For the first time in years, WWE has a potentially serious rival in the form of All Elite Wrestling, who they'll go head to head with on Wednesday nights from next week as WWE's NXT brand takes on AEW's new Dynamite show.

The plot centres on a couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage, opening the floodgates for a mysterious force to enter their home.

And if you're wondering what that might look and sound like, Apple are in a teasing mood, dropping two brief but intriguing snippets earlier this week.

A general release date has yet to be revealed, however. Loves a mystery, that guy...
