Trailer: See to premiere on Apple TV+ this November
James R | On 11, Sep 2019
“The moment has come,” declares the trailer for See, and the first glimpse of the Apple TV+’s new fantasy epic promises eye-opening spectacle indeed.
Created by Peaky Blinders’ Steven Knight, the show is set in a future where humans have lost their sense of sight and follows what happens when a set of twins are born who can see. Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard star as Baba Voss, a warrior and the father of twins born with the mythic ability to see, and Paris, Baba’s spiritual leader. They must rally together to protect the babies and the tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who believes it’s witchcraft and wants them destroyed.
Exec-produced by Knight and Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), with the latter also serving as a director, the result promises ambitious scale, epic landscapes and – judging by the cinematic trailer – some impressive action to go with its world-building.
You’ll be able to see the end result on 1st November, when Apple TV+ launches worldwide. The subscription streaming service will cost £4.99 a month, with a seven-day free trial – and one year’s free subscription for anyone who buys a new Apple device. Apple TV+ will be available through the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV, as well as select smart TVs, streaming boxes and streaming sticks.
Here’s the trailer:
Christian Camargo joins Jason Momoa in Apple sci-fi See
22nd October 2018
Christian Camargo is the newest name to join Jason Momoa in Apple’s sci-fi drama, See.
Created by Peaky Blinders’ Steven Knight, the show is set in a future where humans have lost their sense of sight and follows what happens when a set of twins are born who can see. Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard have already been cast in the series as a priestess and advisor and Momoa as Voss, a warrior. Now, they’ve been joined by Christian Camargo and Hera Hilmar.
Camargo, who was recently seen in Penny Dreadful, will play Tamacti Jun, the head of Queen Kane’s (Sylvia Hoeks) army. Hilmar, known for playing Vanessa in DaVinci’s Demons, will play Maghra, a determined mother. Both will play regular roles in the programme.
The epic, world-building project is exec-produced by Knight and Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), with the latter also serving as a director. It joins a number of originals in production at Apple’s fledgling TV studio, including a space drama from Ronald D. Moore, a show from Damien Chazelle, a comedy starring Kristin Wiig, a psychological thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, and a reboot of Spielberg anthology Amazing Stories. While reports have surfaced recently that Apple has pushed its platform launch back, with some concerns about the company’s focus on non-edgy content, the casting of Camargo and Hilmar will come as a reassuring sign that work is still continuing apace on one of Apple’s most intriguing and ambitious series.

6th August 2018
Steven Knight and Francis Lawrence are rounding out the cast for their Apple drama, See.
The sci-fi series, which is set in a future where humans have lost their sense of sight, follows what happens when a set of twins who can see are born. See is one of a growing number of originals in production at Apple’s fledgling TV studio. Knight, who boasts the smash hit Peaky Blinders on his CV, and Lawrence (The Hunger Games) are big enough talents to catch anyone’s attention, and there are two equally hefty names in front of the camera: Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard.
Now, the series is rounding out its supporting cast, with Yadira Guevara-Prip (Supernatural) and Nesta Cooper (Travelers) cast as Bow Lion, a “young warrior”, and Haniwa, a “proud and determined young daughter”. Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) and Archie Madekwe (Hang Ups) will play Queen Kane, a “spiritual and military political head”, and Kofun, an “intelligent son”. They join Woodard as a priestess and advisor and Momoa as Voss, a warrior.
See: Alfre Woodard to star in Steven Knight’s Apple series
26th July 2018
Alfre Woodard has signed on to star in See, Apple’s drama series from Steven Knight.
Apple TV is a fledgling player in the increasingly competitive streaming market, but has wasted no time in splashing cash to snap up an impressively diverse line-up of shows and talent. Apple’s reported $1 billion investment in its TV content may pale in comparison to Netflix’s current annual spend of $8 billion, but that already includes a new series based on Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy from David S. Goyer, a morning show drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, a space drama from Ronald D. Moore, a show from Damien Chazelle, a comedy starring Kristin Wiig, a psychological thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, and a reboot of Spielberg anthology Amazing Stories.
Now, hot on the heels of an exclusive multi-year deal with Oprah Winfrey, Apple has signed another impressive name: none other than Alfre Woodard. Fresh from her regular role as MVP Mariah Dillard in Marvel’s Luke Cage, not to mention appearances in A Series of Unfortunate Events, Empire and 12 Years a Slave, Woodard is no stranger to the streaming scene or the big screen. She joins Jason Momoa in See, the new series from Steven Knight.
Knight, who boasts the smash hit Peaky Blinders on his CV, is teaming up with Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games) for the programme. Little is known about the show, except that it is set in the future and will build a world where humans have lost their sense of sight, leading to new ways to interact, hunt and survive. When a set of twins who can see are born, all of that challenged.
Woodard joins Jason Momoa, who has already been cast in the role of Baba Voss, a warrior in the new society. Woodard will play Paris, a priestess and advisor.
Apple has given a 10-episode order to the project, with Peter Chernin’s Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content producing.
