emmy magazine see apple tv plusEmmy Magazine is offering readers a behind-the-scenes look at Apple's new drama "See," and subscribers get a free three-month trial of the upcoming Apple TV+ streaming service, which launches on November 1.

Apple's sci-fi thriller, which will debut on the service's launch day, stars Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard, and is reported to have a budget of $15 million per episode. Both stars adorn the cover of the latest issue of the magazine, which is the official publication of the Television Academy.

Inside, the feature takes a deep dive into Apple's epic post apocalyptic drama, in which the world has been wiped out by a virus and the remaining survivors have all been rendered blind. The magazine describes the series as a high-quality "Game of Thrones" style show in terms of cinematic world-building.

The coverage also includes interviews with Apple VPs Jamie Erlicht and Zack van Amburg, who explain that dozens of visually impaired and blind actors were cast for the show, and consultants on blindness, biology and survival were hired to make the drama as realistic as possible.

Jason Momoa plays 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."

Alfre Woodard plays Paris, an advisor and a priestess. Woodard has starred in movies that include "12 Years a Slave," "Annabelle," and "Captain America: Civil War," and she has had roles in several TV shows, such as "Luke Cage," "Desperate Housewives," and "State of Affairs."

I dunno. The trailers for these shows look so boring. They’ll probably have a surprise hit with something more low key and these million dollar episode shows will flop pretty quickly. You can never second guess what the public will enjoy.

“See” looks really bad, but that’s just my opinion. I wonder how long Macrumors and other tech sites bother to cover TV shows just because they’re made by a tech company? I would imagine a little past launch and that’s it.

Correction - not the official magazine of the Academy Awards (that's for Movies/Oscars).
This is the official magazine of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The trailers are atrocious. They’re running them on British tv and they look awful. I’m hoping they just chose the wrong clips for the trailers but after spending millions you would have thought they’d get the right producers in who can cut a good trailer. Which leads me to thinking the actually shows must be bad. I just don’t get it. They have so much money and have hired top tier talent how can they be getting the promotional aspect of drumming up the hype so wrong.
Maybe you're completely wrong? What's more likely?
