Aquaman star Jason Momoa is returning to the small screen, which first launched his fame thanks to his role on Game Of Thrones. But he’s not heading back to traditional TV, he’s instead going the streaming route, as he’s signed on to star in Apple’s ten-episode drama project, See.
Not much is yet known about the project except that it will be set in the future, and has been vaguely described as “epic” and “world building”. Momoa will play the lead role of “Baba Voss, a fearless warrior, leader and guardian”.
Although that’s about all we know about the show’s content thus far, it does have some talent behind the camera to get excited about. Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) has written the series while Francis Lawrence (Red Sparrow) will direct.
See is a part of Apple’s aggressive push into the on-demand streaming world, as they continue to recruit top talent in a bid to try and compete with industry giants like Netflix and Amazon. Whether they will be successful is a big if, as right now we don’t even know how, when or where Apple will be releasing this content they’ve been developing.
They have the infrastructure and funds to compete with the streaming giants, but they’ll need interesting shows to really compete. Perhaps See can be one of them. Until the series eventually debuts, Momoa can next be seen in James Wan‘s Aquaman, which is currently scheduled to open in cinemas on Friday, December 21.
