Apple TV+ announced an order for “The Crowded Room” a new series produced by Apple Studios and New Regency, with Academy Award winner Akiva Goldsman to write and executive produce. Tom Holland plays the lead role in “The Crowded Room” in the first season and will serve as executive producer alongside Goldsman.
“The Crowded Room” is a compelling anthology series that will share the real and inspiring stories of people who have suffered from mental illness and learned to live happily with it. The first season of the anthology is gripping suspense based on Daniel Keyes’ award-winning biography “The Minds of Billy Milligan.” It tells the story of Billy Milligan (Holland), the first person ever to be found not guilty of a crime due to multiple personality disorder (now known as dissociative identity disorder).
Apple Studios and New Regency collaborated on “The Crowded Room.” Via his Weed Road Productions banner, Goldsman will serve as executive producer. Alexandra Milchan of EMJAG Productions, as well as Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan, and Michael Schaefer of New Regency will executive produce the series.
