After much talk about its purported $15 million per-episode budget, Apple finally shared the first trailer for its original sci-fi fantasy drama ‘See’. Introduced onstage by Tim Cook at the company’s special September event at the Steve Jobs Theatre, the two minute teaser sets up the show with stunning visuals and an intriguing high-concept plot.
The Francis Lawrence directed project – shot in British Columbia – is set in a dystopian future where sight is nothing more than a fable after survivors emerge blind following a virus they believe to be part punishment from God.
“In the far future, a virus has decimated humankind. Those who survived emerged blind. Jason Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see—who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who believes it’s witchcraft and wants them destroyed. Alfre Woodard also stars as Paris, Baba Voss’ spiritual leader.”
’See’ will be available through the Apple TV app when Apple TV+ launches in over 100 countries on November 1st.
The Apple original – which has been rated for mature audiences – will premier its first three episodes at launch with the remaining seven episodes releasing to subscribers on a weekly basis.
Apple TV+ will cost $4.99 per month following a seven day free trial with eligible iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV purchases including one full year of complimentary service upon activation.
