According to a report from Deadline, Apple has ordered a new television drama series titled “See,” which is said to be “an epic, world-building drama set in the future.”
Oscar-nominated screenwriter Steven Knight of Peaky Blinders fame will pen the script while The Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence is slated to be behind the camera. The report doesn’t note how much Apple will pay, however, the series is expected to run for 8 episodes.
Apple is known to have picked up at least four other scripted series and one docuseries thus far. Apple is expected to spend at least $1 billion on the effort, which would still put it far behind competitors like Netflix in terms of spending.
Apple has nibbled around the edges of feature films and music production but has yet to take the same kind of leap in those areas.
