At today’s Apple event, Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced the first trailer forSee, an original 10 – episode sci-fi series for the company’s forthcoming streaming service, Apple TV Plus.
“This morning, I want to share with you one of the most imaginative, thrilling, and thought-provoking dramas ever,” Cook said . “Seestars Jason Momoa and takes place hundreds of years into the future in a world without sight, “adding,” We worked with blind and low-vision cast, crew, and consultants for authenticity. “
Per Variety, ” (See) takes place in the distant future, after a deadly virus 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. He must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who wants the twins destroyed. “
The series is created and written by Steven Knight, ofPeaky Blindersfame, and directed by Francis Lawrence, who directed 2007 ‘sI Am Legendand three films in theHunger Games (franchise)Catching FireandMockingjay (Parts 1 and 2). Judging from the trailer, he’s bringing that same singular dystopian vision toSee.
“Centuries from now, almost all humans have lost the ability to see,” we hear a child say in a voiceover. “Some say sight was taken from them by God to heal the Earth. For the few who remain, vision is only a myth.” So what happens when the power of sight returns unexpectedly, with the birth of twins? One might think that would be a good thing, but many now deem sight to be magical or evil.
“The evil of light once almost destroyed the world!” a queen declares. So Baba Voss and his tribe go on the run with the sighted children, knowing others will come for them — unless they give up the babies. And if you think Jason Momoa is going to go along with that, guess again. “These children are a gift,” says Baba Voss. “They will bring knowledge. They will begin a new world.” So the tribe will fight as one — as a family — to protect the children, and their own future.
See is expected to debut alongsidethe soft launchof Apple TV Plus on November 1, 2019 . The service will cost $ 4. 99 per month. It will be available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, and other platforms.
