Sci-fi fans and Lee Pace fanatics alike will watch Foundation online with Apple TV Plus this week. The series is an adaptation of the foundational sci-fi book series of the same name by Isaac Asimov, and early footage reveals that the series will be as important for those looking at our present concerns as those who want to revel in a future.
Jared Harris co-stars as Hari Seldon, a mathematician who is presenting grave (but admittedly uncertain) predictions for the future of man. The Empire’s Committee of Public Safety, a governing body, doesn’t seem to trust Seldon, and Brother Day (Pace) is among the most outspoken.
Foundation looks to tell an epic story, which spans across an entire millennium. It’s from show-runner showrunner David S. Goyer (who wrote for the Blade films, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises), and the first two episodes arrive together this Friday.
