“Spider-Man” star Tom Holland has joined the limited series game.

The thriller has an intriguing premise as provided by Apple: 

The Crowded Room follows Danny Sullivan (Tom Holland), a man who is arrested following his involvement in a shooting in New York City in 1979. A captivating thriller told through a series of interviews with curious interrogator Rya Goodwin (Amanda Seyfried), Danny’s life story unfolds, revealing elements of the mysterious past that shaped him, and the twists and turns that will lead him to a life-altering revelation.

Holland and Emmy Award-winner Seyfried lead an all-star cast that includes Emmy Rossum, Sasha Lane, Will Chase, Lior Raz, Laila Robins, Henry Eikenberry, Zachary Golinger, Christopher Abbott, Emma Laird, and Jason Isaacs, among others.

While “The Crowded Room” takes inspiration from “The Minds of Billy Milligan,” the show itself is fictionized – using the real Milligan’s life as a jump point. “For me, it was about really creating empathy — to create a character that you would really ally with,” Goldsman told Entertainment Weekly. “That you would feel connected to and so his journey would become the audience’s journey.”

“We just felt like it was a more appropriate story to tell from a fictional point of view,” Holland added.

Apple will debut “The Crowded Room” on June 9 with three episodes. The show will stream weekly after that and, based on its release date, find itself eligible at the 2024 Emmys.
