Deadline Hollywood breaks the news that Aquaman and Frontier star Jason Momoa has been tapped as the lead of Apple’s original drama series See, from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, director Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2) and the scripted drama venture of Peter Chernin’s Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content.
Written by Knight and directed by Lawrence, See is described as an epic, world-building drama set in the future. According to sources, the eight-episode See is set in a future when the human race has lost the sense of sight, and society has had to find new ways to interact, to build, to hunt, to survive. All of that is challenged when a set of twins with sight is born.
Momoa will play Baba Voss, a fearless warrior, leader and guardian.
Momoa next headlines the upcoming stand-alone DC spinoff, Aquaman, which premieres December 21, 2018. And as his remake of The Crow by Sony Pictures has reportedly fallen apart, See might be just the sort of new venture Momoa needs to continue his presence as the most lusted-after male actor in America.
If nothing else, there’s always Game of Thrones reruns.
