Jason Momoa is returning to the realm of fantasy in Apple TV+‘s new series ‘See’. Set in a world where humanity has lost the sense of sight, resulting in a return to a primitive way of life, ‘See’ stars Momoa as Baba Voss, the leader of a tribe of people, whose twin babies are born with the ability to see, making them the targets of rival packs. The series was written by Steven Knight (‘Peaky Blinders’) and directed by Francis Lawrence (‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ and ‘Mockingjay’).
Lawrence described the series saying:
“It’s not as if people lost their sight and it’s awful. The human race has adapted. Their other senses have been enhanced.”
As for his character, Momoa said:
“He’s a great warrior trying to keep his family together — just imagine if Khal Drogo got to live on.”
The cast also includes Alfre Woodard as Paris, Yadira Guevara-Prip as Bow Lion, Nesta Cooper as Haniwa, Sylvia Hoeks as Queen Kane, Archie Madekwe as Kofun, Christian Camargo as Tamacti Jun, and Hera Hilmar as Maghra.
Check out the trailer below:
‘See’ is set 600 years in the future. Humanity’s eyesight has been wiped out by a virus. The first season consists of eight episodes, and reportedly, Amazon spent about $15 million per episode, on par with the final season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’. Hopefully, that investment will pay off.
‘See’ will be available when Apple TV+launches on November 1st. The streaming service will cost $4.99 per month, which is pretty reasonable compared to the going rates of Netflix and other major services. It’s even cheaper than the highly-publicized Disney+, which arrives two weeks later.
In addition to ‘See’, Apple TV+ is offering ‘Morning Show’ starring Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carrell, and Reese Witherspoon; ‘Dickinson’, based on the life of writer Emily Dickinson, starring Hailee Steinfeld; ‘For All Mankind’, a fictionalized depiction of the space race, starring Joel Kinnaman; M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Servant’ with Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, and Rupert Grint; and ‘Truth Be Told’, a crime drama with Octavia Spencer, Lizzy Caplan, and Aaron Paul.
