There was no shortage of exciting announcements from Apple today as they released Apple TV+ and a slew of new shows.
One of those features a fur-clad Jason Momoa as Baba Voss in “See”, a futuristic fantasy series that takes place in a world where everyone is blind. It will be written by Steven Knight (“Peaky Blinders”) and directed by Francis Lawrence (“The Hunger Games”).
Alfre Woodard also joins the cast as Paris, a priestess and advisor. Christian Camargo will play Tamacti Jun and Icelandic actress Hera Hilmar will play Maghra.
“Try to think about the world this way: heard, touched, smelled, sensed. Imagine every human experience available to you — love, joy, discovery, despair, and home — imagine it was all experienced this way … without seeing,” Momoa tells Entertainment Weekly.
Woodard added that the show takes place after a virus takes out most of Earth’s inhabitants; those who did survive are blind. New generations are also blind, so Earth is “designed and built to be experienced without sight.”
“In this world, we have our evil queens, brave heroes, and thrilling adventure, but beyond the adventure, “See” will ask questions you may have already started asking yourselves…how much of my experience of the world is visual? Without sight, will it change who I am?” Woodard said.
Clips from the show can be watched above as part of a sizzle reel from Apple that previews more of the shows they have announced, including Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon’s “The Morning Show”.
