Today marked a big day for Apple with the tech company declaring that would be launching a range of new services including its own premium video streaming service this year with special programming. Named Apple TV+, the forthcoming streaming service has released a sizzle reel of its original programming, including the sci-fi series See starring Jason Momoa.
Momoa had first signed on to the Apple TV+ series this past July, as a warrior leader named Baba Voss. The first season is anticipated to run for eight episodes written by Stephen Knight (Peaky Blinders) and directed by Francis Lawrence (Red Sparrow). Knight and Lawrence are also involved the series as executive producers.
Not much is known about the series itself but Momoa’s Voss is seen rising from a cave in a forest background while wielding a terrible looking blade while a clip later discloses Luke Cage’s Alfre Woodard as part of the cast.
The Apple TV+ declaration was a star-studded event earlier today with Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Oprah Winfrey and more appearing to endorse diverse special programming to the future platform.
Apple TV+ is expected to launch sometime this fall.
