Press Release

Apple TV+ have announced a series order for The White Darkness, a new limited series starring Tom Hiddleston (The Essex Serpent, Loki), who will also serve as executive producer, and based on David Grann’s non-fiction work of the same name. The new co-production from Apple Studios and UCP is developed by Soo Hugh (Pachinko, The Terror), who will also co-showrun and serve as executive producer. Mark Heyman (Black Swan, Strange Angel), will co-showrun and executive produce on the series alongside Hugh, and Theresa Kang-Lowe (Pachinko) will executive produce through her company Blue Marble Pictures, which is currently in an overall deal with Apple TV+.

The White Darkness" is inspired by the true life account of British man Henry Worsley, a devoted husband and father, a former soldier, a man of deep honour and sacrifice, but also a man deeply obsessed with adventure, manifesting in an epic journey crossing Antarctica on foot. Starring Hiddleston as Worsley, this is a spellbinding story of courage, love, family and the extremes of human capacity.

You can watch a fascinating talk by the author David Grann about his book and its subject here:

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 the upcoming Apple Original series The Essex Serpent.
