Joining the list of streaming services such as Netflix, Stan, Disney+ and Hulu, it was announced on Tuesday that Apple would launch its own platform of video content. Aptly dubbed ‘Apple TV+’, the service is spending big dollars to produce original storylines and after the annual tech reveal in California this week, we have an idea of what to expect. After Wall Street Journal reported that Apple is investing $15 million per episode, we now have a look at Jason Momoa‘s latest role.
Following his celebrated performance in Aquaman late last year, the 40-year-old will continue his streak in the realm of science fiction. Titled ‘See’, the new series appears to be a masterful combination of Bird Box and Game of Thrones vibes, in an elaborate exploration of humanity, sorcery and post-apocalyptic concepts. Also featuring Alfre Woodard, the official synopsis reads:
“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.”
Rumoured to be one of the most expensive series ever to be created thus far – behind Game of Thrones – it is directed by Francis Lawrence (behind the Hunger Games trilogy) and promises to be just as epic.
And while some services are becoming increasingly more expensive, Apple TV+ is set to be priced at $7.99 AUD a month. Additionally, with the purchase of any Apple device, you can get a year of the streaming service for free.
