Isaac Asimov’s grand sci-fi series Foundation is getting the TV treatment from Batman Begins‘ David S. Goyer, and now we’ve got our first full look at Apple TV+’s big budget adaptation. The books follows a band of followers who believe their galactic empire is on the verge of collapse, their quest to preserve civilization and the empire’s own struggle to fight fate and remain in power.
Here’s the official description.
When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon (Jared Harris) predicts the impending fall of the Empire, he and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. Enraged by Hari’s claims, the ruling Cleons (led by Lee Pace) — a long line of emperor clones — fear their unrivaled reign may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.
The first two episodes will debut on September 24, and a new episode will drop every week after that.
