Apple’s Silo, the new 10-episode drama series based on Hugh Howey’s New York Times bestselling trilogy of dystopian novels, is set to make its global premiere on Friday 5 May on Apple TV+, and we’ve got the first trailer here!
Debuting a first look teaser and photos from the series, Silo is created by screenwriter Graham Yost, who also serves as showrunner, with Morten Tyldum directs the first three episodes and the world-building drama stars an ensemble cast led by Rebecca Ferguson, who will also serve as exec producer.
Silo is the story of the last ten thousand people on earth, their mile-deep home protecting them from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why the silo was built and any who try to find out face fatal consequences. Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer, who seeks answers about a loved one’s murder and tumbles onto a mystery that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined, leading her to discover that if the lies don’t kill you, the truth will.
If you’ve read E.M. Forster‘s The Machine Stops, there’s an essence of that here – but I’m intrigued and especially with a strong cast, alongside Ferguson, that includes Common, Harriet Walter, Chinaza Uche, Avi Nash, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones and Tim Robbins, here’s your trailer:
I’ve seen episodes 1-4 so far. Excellent series. Far exceeds run of the mill postapocalyptic fiction propelled by excellent acting, tight dialog, and superb visuals.
