Apple has been making ways in the streaming business even more so, since their ‘CODA’ won three Oscars at the Academy Awards this year.
Now the tech giant has ordered a straight-to-series drama based on the book by author David Grann – ‘The White Darkness’. They have reached out to Marvel’s Loki actor, Tom Hiddleston to star in it.
The limited series, which will be based on David Grann’s book is inspired by the true story of Henry Worsely, a devoted family man, who was a former soldier and one who believes in honour and sacrifice, but also someone who is quite obsessed with adventure which translates to him undertaking a journey where he crosses the continent of Antarctica on foot.
As per Apple, the series will “explore courage, love, family and the extremes of human capacity.”
The White Darkness will be co-produced by Apple Studios and Universal Content Productions and the showrunners will be Mark Heyman and Soo Hugh.
This will be Hugh’s second show with Apple, the first one being the critically acclaimed adaptation of ‘Pachinko’ by Min Jin Lee.
“The White Darkness’ will also be Hiddleston’s second show with Apple as the actor will soon be seen alongside Clare Danes in ‘The Essex Serpent’, which is also based on a book.
Besides this, Tom Hiddleston also has the second season of Marvel’s the Loki series for Disney+.
Apart from his popular Marvel career, Tom Hiddleston has also starred in other movies like ‘Kong: Skull Island’, ‘Wars’ and ‘Muppets: Most Wanted’.
This show joins a whole host of celebrated content in Apple’s roster which include, ‘The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray, ‘WeCrashed’, ‘Five Days at Memorial’ and ‘Masters of the Air’.
