Apple has commissioned another original series, this one a sci-fi show starring Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Aquaman).

It’s an epic drama set in a future where humans have lost the sense of sight. But their world is turned on its head when a pair of twins were born who were capable of seeing.

Momoa will play Baba Voss, a warrior who’s leading his people (much like Momoa’s role as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones).

The show is made by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and The Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence.

Apple has ordered one season of the show, which will air either on Apple Music or on a new streaming service that Apple reportedly has in the works. There’s no word on when it will be broadcast.

It’s part of Apple’s $1 billion push into original programming (though that’s small beer compared to Netflix’s recent spending). This also includes a new show from Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston and a new project from TV legend Oprah.
