Apple TV+ has ordered the series “The Crowded Room,” with Tom Holland starring in the lead role of the first season.
The anthology series will be produced by Apple Studios and New Regency, with Academy Award winner Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) set to write and executive produce.
Holland also will serve as executive producer alongside Goldsman.
“The Crowded Room” will explore the true and inspirational stories of those who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness.
The anthology’s 10-episode first season is inspired by the award-winning biography The Minds of Billy Milligan by Daniel Keyes. It tells the story of Billy Milligan (Holland), the first person ever acquitted of a crime because of multiple personality disorder (now known as dissociative identity disorder).
