The 10-episode series is based on the book “Dark Manual” by Japan-based award-winning Irish writer Colin O’Sullivan. The dark comedy stars Jones as Suzie, an American woman living in Kyoto, Japan, whose life is upended when her husband and son disappear in a mysterious plane crash.
As “consolation” she’s given Sunny, one of a new class of domestic robots made by her husband’s electronics company.
