Apple TV+ has landed “Dark Matter,” a nine-episode series based on the science-fiction novel by Blake Crouch.
Starring Joel Edgerton (“Obi-Wan Kenobi,” Boy Erased, Loving), who also serves as executive producer, the series will be written and showrun by Crouch and will be produced for Apple TV+ by Sony Pictures Television.
“Dark Matter” is a story about the road not taken. The series follows Jason Dessen (Edgerton), a physicist, professor and family man who — one night while walking home on the streets of Chicago — is abducted into an alternate version of his life. Wonder quickly turns to nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the multiverse of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of mind-bending realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.
