"What if everything you know to be true is one big lie?" Apple has revealed a quick teaser for an intriguing new sci-fi series titled Silo, arriving for streaming starting in May. This new title, Silo, is the same title as the book series it's based on - but the project was going with the title Wool initially while in production. Perhaps a reference to the "wool" being pulled over our eyes? "The truth will surface." In a ruined and toxic future, thousands live in a giant silo deep underground. After its sheriff breaks a cardinal rule and residents die mysteriously, engineer Juliette starts to uncover shocking secrets and the truth about the silo. The series stars Rebecca Ferguson as Juliette, with an ensemble cast including Tim Robbins, Rashida Jones, David Oyelowo, Common, Harriet Walter, Avi Nash, Chinaza Uche, & Iain Glen. This looks legit - I dig the entire setup and all of the shots of this huge "silo" they're living in. Is it just a giant metaphor for Plato's Cave? Is it just another Logan's Run update or something more nefarious? Very curious to find out.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Apple TV+'s series Silo, direct from Apple's YouTube:
