Determined not to be left in the dust in the ever-growing streaming wars, Apple is determined to join the ranks of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon in ramping up its original content. Today they have announced the ordering of their fourth scripted series, See.
According to Deadline, the new series will come from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence. The show has received a straight-to-series order from Apple, which has been on the hunt as of late with orders for a morning-show drama featuring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, a remake of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, and a new space drama from Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine).
Not much is known about what See will be about yet, but it is described as an "epic, world-building drama set in the future." Though the size of the order is also unknown, Deadline presumes it will consist of at least eight episodes. Knight and Lawrence are set to executive produce, alongside Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, and Kristen Campo of Chernin Entertainment.
We'll have more on this project as it is revealed, but in the meantime, the phrase "epic world-building" has our interest. What about you?
