Actor Tom Holland will star in the first season of the new seasonal anthology series for Apple TV Plus.
Named “Crowded Room”, the show comes from Oscar-winning writer Akiva Goldsman, the streamer said in a statement.
The show, described as a poignant anthology series, will explore the true and inspiring stories of those who have struggled and learned to live successfully with mental illness.
The first season was inspired by Daniel Keyes ’award-winning biography“ Minds of Billy Milligan ”.
In the 10-episode season, Holland will perform as Billy Milligan, the first person ever acquitted of a crime for multiple personality disorder, now known as dissociative identity disorder.
“Crowded Room” is a co-production between Apple Studios and New Regency.
Goldman, whose authors include films such as “A Beautiful Mind,” “Cinderella Man,” “Da Vinci Code,” and “Angels & Demons,” will also produce the show through its Weed Road Productions banner.
Holland will also perform production alongside Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer.
The actor recently appeared in the films “Cherry” by the Russo brothers and the sci-fi film “Walking in Chaos”. The next star will star in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and Sony’s “Uncharted” adaptation.
