AppleTV+ Orders 10 Episodes of Anthology Drama 'The Crowded Room' Starring Tom Holland

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original season-long anthology drama series The Crowded Room starring Tom Holland (the Spider-Man franchise). The first season will produce 10 episodes.

The gripping anthology series will explore the true and inspirational stories of those who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness. The first season - inspired by the novel The Minds of Billy Milligan by Daniel Keyes - depicts the story of Billy Milligan (Holland), the first person ever acquitted of a crime because of multiple personality disorder (now known as dissociative identity disorder).

Akiva Goldsman created the series. He will executive produce with Holland, Alexandra Milchan, Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer. Apple Studios, New Regency, Weed Road Productions and EMJAG Productions will produce.
