Aquaman star Jason Momoa has boarded new sci-fi series, See, produced by Apple.
See marks one of the first original shows from the technology giant, and Momoa’s return to television after appearing in Game of Thrones, Netflix’s Frontier, and The Red Road.
Screenwriter Steven Knight – creator of Peaky Blinders – has penned the script, whilst Red Sparrow and Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence will direct. Knight and Lawrence will also executive produce the series, which hails from the Chernin Entertainment/Endeavor Content stable.
See is described as an ambitious futuristic drama, envisioning a world in which humans have lost the ability to see. Humanity must find new ways of survival without their core sense but everything changes when a set of twins with sight are born.
Momoa will play Baba Voss, “a fearless warrior, leader and guardian”, a character that sounds similar to the actor’s breakout role on Game of Thrones. Momoa starred as the brutish Dothraki chief Khal Drogo, husband of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys, during the show’s first season.
Momoa was last seen on the big screen as Aquaman in DC Comics’ superhero mash-up, Justice League, and will return later this year to star in Aquaman, directed by James Wan. Aquaman is released in the US on December 21 and December 14 in the UK.
No release date or additional casting for See has been announced but when it is, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
