Tom Holland is reuniting with Apple TV+ for his next project.

Today, the streamer 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 the 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 Crowded Room is described as "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 series will also be executive produced by Alexandra Milchan for EMJAG Productions and New Regency’s Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan, and Michael Schaefer.

Holland is probably most well known for his role as Peter Parker in the Spider-Man movie series. He recently appeared in the movie Chaos Walking, as well as Cherry.

He will next be seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is set to launch in theaters later this year.
