Apple will bring Isaac Asimov's Foundation to streaming television

Apple has outbid other companies to get the TV series adaptation of the Isaac Asimov science fiction book series Foundation.
Skydance Television is making the Foundation series. They also make Altered Carbon and the upcoming Jack Ryan.
Goyer and Friedman will be executive producers and showrunners. They have previously been involved in Terminator movies or television and Dark Knight.
Apple is spending $1 billion in 2018 to develop original TV shows.
In Foundation, a mathematician Hari Seldon spends his life developing a branch of mathematics known as psychohistory, a concept of mathematical sociology. It can predict the future, but only on a large scale. Seldon foresees the imminent fall of the Galactic Empire, which encompasses the entire Milky Way, and a dark age lasting 30,000 years before a second great empire arises. Seldon’s calculations also show there is a way to limit this interregnum to just one thousand years. To ensure the more favorable outcome and reduce human misery during the intervening period, Seldon creates the Foundation – a group of talented artisans and engineers positioned at the twinned extreme ends of the galaxy – to preserve and expand on humanity’s collective knowledge, and thus become the foundation for the accelerated resurgence of this new galactic empire.
