With hit shows like Ted Lasso and The Morning Show dominating major categories at this year’s Emmys and Golden Globes ceremonies, the streaming service continues to bring compelling and relevant content to its subscribers. Up next, as first reported by Variety, a new series in the works for Apple is assembling a rather impressive ensemble cast.
Per the initial report, the new series is titled Wool. The cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, Tim Robbins, Rashida Jones, Common, and David Oyelowo. Graham Yost (Justified) will write and executive produce the series with Ferguson executive producing. Additionally, AMC Studios will bankroll the series with Apple TV+ handling distribution.
Wool is based on a novel series of the same name by author Hugh Howey. The story takes place in a toxic future where a community lives inside a giant underground silo. Thousands of feet deep in the ground, the men and women of the society follow and adhere to a strict set of regulations designed to keep them safe.
David Oyelowo is a Screen Actors Guild Award-winning actor with prominent roles in films like Selma and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Most recently, the actor appeared alongside Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley in the sci-fi thriller Chaos Walking. Meanwhile, Rebecca Ferguson is best known for her memorable turns in films like The Greatest Showman and Doctor Sleep. Up next, Ferguson is amongst the all-star ensemble for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. Moreover, Common has successfully transitioned from a gifted lyricist to an accomplished actor in the last two decades. With roles in Suicide Squad and Now You See Me under his belt, the versatile performer will next star in Charlie Day’s El Tonto.
