AppleTV+ Gives Series Order to Limited Series 'The White Darkness' Starring Tom Hiddleston

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original limited series The White Darkness starring Tom Hiddleston (Loki, The Essex Serpent). An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

Based on the nonfiction novel by David Grann, the series will detail the true life account of Henry Worsley (Hiddleston), a devoted husband and father, a former soldier, a man of deep honor and sacrifice, but also a man deeply obsessed with adventure, manifesting in an epic journey crossing Antarctica on foot. This is a spellbinding story of courage, love, family and the extremes of human capacity.

Soo Hugh developed the series and will serve as co-showrunner with Mark Heyman. They will executive produce with Hiddleston, Theresa Kang-Lowe and Caroline Garity. Apple Studios, Universal Content Productions and Blue Marble Pictures will produce.
