Loki star faces The White Darkness

The story of Henry Worsley, a man who crossed Antarctica on foot

Apple TV

MCU alum Tom Hiddleston will star in and executive produce new Apple Original limited series “The White Darkness”, the network announced today.

Based on David Grann’s non-fiction work of the same name, “The White Darkness” is inspired by the true life account of Henry Worsley (played by 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. “Thor” and “Avengers” alum Hiddleston will star as Worsley.

The new co-production from Apple Studios and UCP is developed by Soo Hugh (“Pachinko,” “The Terror”), who will also co-showrun and serve as executive producer. Mark Heyman (“Black Swan, “Strange Angel”), will co-showrun and executive produce on the series alongside Hugh, and Theresa Kang-Lowe (“Pachinko”) will executive produce through her company Blue Marble Pictures which is currently in an overall deal with Apple TV+.

“The White Darkness” will be produced for Apple TV+ by Apple Studios and UCP. In addition to Hiddleston, Hugh, Heyman, and Kang-Lowe, the series is also executive produced by Caroline Garity of Blue Marble Pictures. This marks the second partnership for Hugh, Blue Marble Pictures and Apple TV+ following the recently premiered, broadly and critically hailed series “Pachinko,” which Hugh wrote, produced, and showran, and Kang executive produced, and is currently in-season on Apple TV+. It also marks the second partnership for Apple TV+ and Hiddleston who will next star in upcoming Apple Original series, “The Essex Serpent.”
