Described as a gripping anthology series, the show will explore the true and inspirational stories of those who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness.
Season one is inspired by the award-winning biography “The Minds of Billy Milligan” by Daniel Keyes.
The 10-episode season will feature Holland as Billy Milligan, 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.
Goldman, whose writing credits include movies such as “A Beautiful Mind”, “Cinderella Man”, “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels & Demons”, will also executive produce the show through his Weed Road Productions banner.
Holland will also executive produce alongside Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer.
The actor most recently featured in Russo Brothers’ “Cherry” and sci-fi movie “Chaos Walking”. He will next star in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and Sony’s “Uncharted” adaptation.
