Alfre Woodard in "Luke Cage"

Casting for "See" began earlier this month with Jason Momoa set to play the lead role of Baba Voss, a fearless warrior, leader, and guardian. Momoa is well-known for his role as Khal Drogo in "Game of Thrones," as well as roles in "Aquaman," "Stargate Atlantis," and "Conan the Barbarian."

"See" has been described as an epic world-building drama that's set in the future, with little additional information available on the series at this time.

Along with "See," Apple has more than a dozen other original TV shows in the works, and rumors have suggested the first of those TV shows could debut in March 2019.

We don't yet know how Apple plans to distribute the television shows, but the Cupertino company may be considering launching a new streaming video service to be bundled with an Apple Music subscription and a digital magazine and news subscription.

She's a brilliant actress. Hoepfully the scenario will be up to the task, and the marketing better handled than for Planet of the Apps.
