'The White Darkness': Tom Hiddleston to Star in Adventure Series for Apple TV+

The series is based on the nonfiction book of the same name.


Apple TV+ has announced a series order for their next limited series: The White Darkness, starring and executive produced by Loki star Tom Hiddleston. This upcoming limited series is being developed by Soo Hugh based on the acclaimed 2018 non-fiction book of the same name by New York Times Bestselling author David Grann. Both the book and the adaptation for Apple TV+ are inspired by the true-life story of Henry Worsley, who will be portrayed by Hiddleston.

The story will follow the former soldier and devoted father whose obsession with adventures takes him on an epic journey like no other, as he sets out to cross Antarctica on foot. The official description of the series describes it as a "spellbinding story of courage, love, family and the extremes of human capacity." The series will premiere globally on Apple TV+, though no release date or window has been revealed as of yet.

In addition to Hiddleston, Hugh will also serve as an executive producer on the project alongside Theresa Kang-Lowe through her company Blue Marble Pictures, Caroline Garity of Blue Marble Pictures (which is currently in an overall deal with Apple TV+), and Mark Heyman. Hugh and Heyman will also serve as co-showrunners on the series. The team of Hugh, Blue Marble Pictures, and Apple TV+ is partnering up for the second time in a short span, as all three entities worked together on the newly released, critically hailed drama series Pachinko, which premiered on Apple TV+ on March 25 and currently airing its first season.
