See, Series Premiere: Starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard, See is a high concept series that takes place in a future where humanity has lost the ability to perceive the world with sight. It will follow the story of fearless leader 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.
The Morning Show, Series Premiere: Starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon, Apple’s drama follows the lies of the people who wake up before dawn and deliver the morning talk shows on TV. The series was inspired by journalist Brain Stelter’s novel, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.
For All Mankind, Series Premiere: The series, starring Joel Kinnaman, explores what would have happened if the global space race never ended. The drama presents an aspirational world where NASA astronauts, engineers and their families find themselves in the center of extraordinary events seen through the prism of an alternate history timeline — a world in which the USSR beats the US to the moon.
Dickinson, Series Premiere: Starring Hailee Steinfeld as the titular rebel, the series is set during Emily Dickinson’s era with a modern sensibility and tone. It takes viewers into the world of Emily, audaciously exploring the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of a budding writer who doesn’t fit into her own time through her imaginative point of view. Dickinson is Emily’s coming-of-age story — one woman’s fight to get her voice heard.
