Apple has announced that it has made a series order for The Crowded Room, an anthology that will star Tom Holland for the first season.

Apple TV+ today announced a series order for "The Crowded Room," a seasonal anthology that will be produced by Apple Studios and New Regency, with Academy Award winner Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind") set to write and executive produce. On the heels of the premiere of global hit Apple Original film "Cherry," Tom Holland will star in the lead role of the first season and will serve as executive producer alongside Goldsman.

The series follows the story of Billy Milligan, the first person ever acquitted of a crime due to multiple personality disorder.

"The Crowded Room" is a gripping anthology series that will explore the true and inspirational stories of those who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness. The anthology's 10-episode first season is a captivating thriller, inspired by the award-winning biography "The Minds of Billy Milligan" by Daniel Keyes. It tells the story of Billy Milligan (Holland), the first person ever acquitted of a crime because of multiple personality disorder (now known as dissociative identity disorder).

"The Crowded Room" is a co-production between Apple Studios and New Regency. Goldsman will serve as executive producer through his Weed Road Productions banner. The series will also be executive produced by Alexandra Milchan for EMJAG Productions and New Regency's Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer.
