Apple premiered its upcoming futuristic thriller “See” at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood, California, on Monday night. The show – which stars Jason Momoa, Alfre Woodard, Hera Hilmar, Sylvia Hoeks, Christian Camargo, Archie Madekwe, Nesta Cooper and Yadira Guevara-Prip – will debut on November 1, alongside the debut of the Apple TV+ streaming service.
Written and created by Steven Knight and directed by Francis Lawrence, “See” takes place in the distant future, after a deadly virus decimated humankind. Those who survived emerged blind. Jason Momoa stars as 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 wants the twins destroyed. Alfre Woodard stars as Paris, Baba Voss’s spiritual leader.
“See” features an incredible cast and crew, many of whom are blind or have low vision, who helped bring this epic story to life.
The series is reported to have a budget of $15 million per episode.
Momoa is best-known for his role as Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones,” as well as roles in “Aquaman,” “Stargate Atlantis,” and “Conan the Barbarian.”

New episodes will then roll out weekly, every Friday.
