On Monday at WWDC20, Apple surprised audiences with a first look at “Foundation,” the highly anticipated Apple Original drama series for Apple TV+ based on the internationally revered and award-winning Isaac Asimov novel series of the same name.
In the teaser trailer, showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer unveils a glimpse into the making of the epic saga, which chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire.
“Foundation” stars SAG Award winner and Emmy nominee Jared Harris as Hari Seldon; Lee Pace as Brother Day; Lou Llobell as Gaal; Leah Harvey as Salvor; Laura Birn as Demerzel; Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk; and Cassian Bilton as Brother Dawn.
“Foundation” is executive produced by Robyn Asimov, David S. Goyer, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross. The series is produced for Apple by Skydance Television.
“Foundation” will debut exclusively on Apple TV+, the first all-original video subscription service and home to award-winning series and films from today’s biggest storytellers. Apple TV+ is now available in over 100 countries on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, as well as at tv.apple.com.
MacDailyNews Take: Translate Asimov’s Foundation from the written page to the moving image? They said it couldn’t be done. They were wrong. Only on Apple TV+.
