Apple TV+ has announced that the highly anticipated limited series “The Crowded Room” will begin streaming on June 9. Inspired by the true story told in the novel “The Minds of Billy Milligan”, the show stars Tom Holland and Amanda Seyfried in lead roles.
Holland takes on the character of Danny Sullivan, a man based on the real-life Billy Milligan. Milligan was the first person ever acquitted of a crime because of dissociative identity disorder. The series follows Sullivan, who is under investigation for his involvement in a 1979 shooting in New York City, and Seyfried plays Rya Goodwin, the detective assigned to the case.
Originally described as a drama anthology, “The Crowded Room” features Holland in all ten episodes of the first season, but the door is left open for a different actor to take on the role in a possible second season.
The series premieres with the first three episodes on June 9, with the remainder of the season debuting weekly on Fridays. This marks Holland’s second project for Apple TV+, following the release of the original film “Cherry” in 2021. It also marks his return to television since his breakout role as Spiderman in the Marvel movie franchise.
