The White Darkness Starring Tom Hiddleston – New Apple Original Limited Series



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

“The White Darkness,” a new limited series starring Tom Hiddleston (“The Essex Serpent,” “Loki”), who will also act as executive producer, and based on David Grann’s non-fiction bestseller of the same name, has received a series order from Apple TV+.

“The White Darkness” is based on the true story of Henry Worsley (Hiddleston), a loyal husband and father, a former soldier, a man of great honour and sacrifice, but also a man infatuated with adventure, which manifested itself in an epic expedition across Antarctica on foot. This is a riveting narrative of courage, love, family, and the extremes of human capacity, starring Tom Hiddleston as Worsley.

“The White Darkness” will be produced for Apple TV+ by Apple Studios and UCP. In addition to Hiddleston, Hugh, Heyman, and Kang-Lowe, the series is also executive produced by Caroline Garity of Blue Marble Pictures. This marks the second partnership for Hugh, Blue Marble Pictures, and Apple TV+ following the recently premiered, broadly and critically hailed series “Pachinko,” which Hugh wrote, produced, and showran, and Kang executive produced, and is currently in-season on Apple TV+. It also marks the second partnership for Apple TV+ and Hiddleston who will next star in upcoming Apple Original series, “The Essex Serpent.”

“The White Darkness” will premiere globally on Apple TV+ alongside an expanding offering of limited series from today’s most creative storytellers including “WeCrashed” starring and executive produced by Anne Hathaway and Jared Leto; “The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey” starring and executive produced by Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson, and based on the moving novel by best-selling author Walter Mosley; a recently announced new limited event series starring multi-award winner Michael Douglas as Benjamin Franklin; acclaimed series “The Shrink Next Door“; “Masters of the Air” from Apple Studios and executive produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s Playtone; “Five Days at Memorial” from Academy Award winner John Ridley and Emmy Award winner Carlton Cuse, and more.
