A new YouTube video shows us what goes into building an empire for the hit Apple TV+ show Foundation. The show, based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, is available to stream now.

In this featurette, running for more than two and a half minutes, we get to see the work that goes on behind the scenes when a show of this scale is brought together. And it looks like it's a lot of work!

Check out the full featurette to see what I mean.

Based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, Foundation chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire.

Foundation is a show that many had been looking forward to and it finally premiered last month. The sci-fi show stars "AG Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Jared Harris as Dr. Hari Seldon; Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace as Brother Day; Lou Llobell as Gaal Dornick; Leah Harvey as Salvor Hardin; Laura Birn as Demerzel; Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk; Cassian Bilton as Brother Dawn; and Alfred Enoch as Raych." That's a whole lot of talent and the result is spectacular.

Apple TV+ remains some of the best value in the world of streaming content and that was very much the case even before Foundation arrived. You can watch Apple TV+ for just $4.99 per month on iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple TVs, and all manner of smart TVs and streaming sticks with more being added all the time.
