In addition to all the software goodness, Apple has also at WWDC 2020 released info about Foundation, a new Apple Original drama series based on Isaac Asimov’s novel series of the same name.

Set to debut exclusively on Apple TV+ sometime in 2021, Foundation tells the story of ‘a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilisation amid the fall of the Galactic Empire’.

The show stars SAG Award winner, Emmy nominee and Chernobyl star Jared Harris as Hari Seldon and Lee Pace (remember Ronan the Accuser in Guardians of the Galaxy?) as Brother Day. We also have Lou Llobell as Gaal, Leah Harvey as Salvor, Laura Birn as Demerzel, Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk, and Cassian Bilton as Brother Dawn.

Produced for Apple by Skydance Television, Foundation’s executive producers include showrunner David Goyer, Robyn Asimov, David S. Goyer, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross.

Apple has also released a teaser trailer, which I've embedded below. I won’t blame you if you've the Star Wars feels after watching it but I’ll leave the explanation for another day because… it’s complicated.
