Apple TV+ Reveals Foundation and Acquires Sharper with Julianne Moore

-

Today at WWDC20, Apple surprised audiences with a first look at Foundation, the highly-anticipated Apple Original drama series based on the internationally revered and award-winning Isaac Asimov novel series of the same name (buy at Amazon).

In the teaser trailer, showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer unveils a glimpse into the making of the epic saga, which chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire.

Foundation stars SAG Award-winner and Emmy-nominee Jared Harris as Hari Seldon, Lee Pace as Brother Day, Lou Llobell as Gaal, Leah Harvey as Salvor, Laura Birn as Demerzel, Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk, and Cassian Bilton as play Brother Dawn.

Foundation is executive produced by Robyn Asimov, David S. Goyer, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross. The series is produced for Apple by Skydance Television.

In a competitive situation, Apple has also landed Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka’s highly sought-after spec feature screenplay Sharper, starring and produced by Academy Award winner Julianne Moore. Sharper follows a con artist, played by Moore, set in the world of Manhattan’s billionaire echelon.

Moore will produce Sharper with Bart Freundlich, Brian Gatewood, Alessandro Tanaka and Erik Feig of Picturestart. Gatewood and Tanaka will write the script for the film. A24 will serve as the studio, with Picturestart attached as the production company.

Sharper marks Moore’s second project with Apple, following the much-anticipated, upcoming limited series Lisey’s Story, a deeply personal thriller from writer Stephen King and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, in which Moore will star and executive produce, to premiere exclusively on Apple TV+.

In addition to Sharper, Apple and A24’s feature film partnership includes the highly-anticipated On the Rocks from Sofia Coppola, starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones, and The Sky Is Everywhere. Apple will also soon premiere Greyhound, starring Tom Hanks, on July 10; and Sundance 2020 Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Boys State, with A24 as the distribution partner on the film.
