Priced at $4.99 per month, Apple’s streaming service is launching November 1. With the launch comes Jason Momoa‘s new sci-fi series, See.
Much like the latest trend in horror suspense films, like A Quiet Place and Bird Box, the new series does away with one of our key senses (in this case, it’s sight) and is set in a post-apocalyptic future where man is forced to become more resourceful after a deadly virus decimates humankind.
Aquaman star Jason Momoa plays Baba Voss, the leader of a tribe and the father of twins babies who are born with the ability to see. He is forced to protect the children from a desperate queen who believes they will bring harm to the current world they live in.
See also stars Woodard stars as Paris, Baba Voss’s spiritual leader, with Yadira Guevara-Prip, Sylvia Hoeks, Nesta Cooper, Archie Madekwe, Christian Camargo, Hera Hilmar and Marilee Talkington. It is written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and directed by Francis Lawrence (Hunger Games).
The show reveals the type of prestige-level content that Apple hopes to deliver to subscribers. So far, so good.
