Apple has announced a series order for The White Darkness, a new limited series starring Tom Hiddleston who will also serve as executive producer. The series, which will stream on Apple TV+ on a date TBC, is based on David Grann’s non-fiction work of the same name.
The new co-production from Apple Studios and UCP is developed by Soo Hugh, who will also co-showrun and serve as executive producer. Mark Heyman, will co-showrun and executive produce on the series alongside Hugh, and Theresa Kang-Lowe will executive produce through her company Blue Marble Pictures, which is currently in an overall deal with the Apple TV+ streaming service.
The White Darkness is inspired by the true life account of Henry Worsley, a devoted husband and father, a former soldier, a man of deep honour and sacrifice, but also a man deeply obsessed with adventure, manifesting in an epic journey crossing Antarctica on foot. Starring Hiddleston as Worsley, it is a story of courage, love, family and the extremes of human capacity.
