Not to be outdone by The Mouse House and Disney+, Apple has their own streaming service launching this fall — Apple TV+ — that’s set to be just as much of a game-changer.
Launching on Friday, November 1, Apple TV+ is set to be chock full of prestige television, ranging from dramas such as the Steve Carell and Jennifer Aniston-starring The Morning Show to fantasies such as a reboot of the anthology series Amazing Stories by Steven Spielberg.
However, of all the Apple TV+ original series set to debut in the coming years (Apple is reportedly set to spend over $4 billion on original programming by 2022), the one that has me most excited is the Jason Momoa dystopian epic SEE, which Apple finally gave fans a taste of with today’s trailer release.
Here’s the official synopsis for SEE, via Apple:
In the far future, a virus has decimated humankind. Those who survived emerged blind.
Jason Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see—who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who believes it’s witchcraft and wants them destroyed. Alfre Woodard also stars as Paris, Baba Voss’ spiritual leader.
Written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and directed by Francis Lawrence — who is known for his directorial work on The Hunger Games film franchise — SEE also stars Yadira Guevara-Prip, Nesta Cooper, Sylvia Hoeks, Archie Madekwe, Christian Camargo, and Hera Hilmar, in addition to Momoa and Woodard.
SEE, one of a handful of original series debuting on the streaming service this Fall, will hit Apple TV+ on Friday, November 1.
