Apple TV+ Set to Launch New Dystopian Series ‘Silo’ on May 5
March 6, 2023
Apple TV+ March 6 announced the pending debut of “Silo,” a new 10-episode drama series based on Hugh Howey’s trilogy of dystopian novels, set to bow May 5 on the SVOD service and starring Rebecca Ferguson (Dune, “Mission: Impossible” franchise), who will also serve as executive producer.
The series, which is produced for Apple TV+ by AMC Studios, will premiere with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday through June 30.
“Silo” is the story of the last 10,000 people on earth, their mile-deep home protecting them from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why the silo was built and any who try to find out face fatal consequences. Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer, who seeks answers about a loved one’s murder and tumbles onto a mystery that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined.
The ensemble cast includes Common (“The Chi”), Emmy-nominee Harriet Walter (“Succession”), Chinaza Uche (“Dickinson”), Avi Nash (“The Walking Dead”), Critics Choice Award and NAACP winner David Oyelowo (Selma), Emmy-nominee Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”) and Academy Award-winner Tim Robbins (Mystic River).
