Pa’a Sibbett​​​​​​​will also write alongside Momoa.​​​​​​​ Endeavor Content and Chernin Entertainment are producing.




It’s not the first time that Momoa has linked with Apple. The Aquaman star is also working with the streamer on See, which was renewed for a third season last year. The science fiction drama also stars Alfre Woodard, Sylvia Hoeks, Hera Hilmar, and Christian Camargo. Fans will be able to catch Momoa in the upcoming movie The Last Manhunt, which the actor also wrote with Pa’a Sibbett​​​​​​​.
