Tom Hiddleston will star in The White Darkness for Apple TV+

While Tom Hiddleston is expected to begin filming a second season of Loki later this year, one of his next roles will be considerably more down-to-Earth. Via The Wrap, Hiddleston is attached to star in The White Darkness, which is based upon the true story of British explorer Henry Worsley.

Worsley was a former British Army officer who idolized another famous explorer, Ernest Shackleton. In 2009, Worsley took part in an expedition that retraced Shackleton’s legendary journey across the Antarctic. However, Worsley went on an even bolder expedition in 2016 when he attempted to become the first person to cross Antarctica alone and unaided. Unfortunately, Worsley came tantalizingly close to his goal before his health failed him. He died a short time after he was rescued.

Author David Grann’s novel, The White Darkness, was a non-fiction account of Worsley’s life that forms the basis of this miniseries. Filmmaker Soo Hugh is adapting The White Darkness for television.

The miniseries will be produced by Blue Marble Pictures for Apple TV+. Both Hiddleston and Hugh will be executive producers on the series, alongside Theresa Kang-Lowe, Caroline Garity, and Mark Heyman.

While Apple TV+ hasn’t set a premiere date or a start of production for The White Darkness, it won’t be Hiddleston’s first show on the streaming service. Hiddleston is already slated to headline the Apple TV+ original series, The Essex Serpent, as well as a show for Netflix called White Stork, which has already finished filming. And somewhere in that busy schedule, Hiddleston still has to find time for Loki season 2.

Rabbit Hole cast and creators discuss their new espionage Paramount+ series
Kiefer Sutherland and Meta Golding stand next to each other in Rabbit Hole.

For John Weir (The Contractor's Kiefer Sutherland), deception is a strength, not a weakness. Weir specializes in corporate espionage, as he and his team manipulate stocks, create fake news stories, and make the lives of the rich a living nightmare for the group's financial gain. Unlike the intense Jack Bauer on 24 and the noble Tom Kirkman on Designated Survivor, Sutherland's Weir in Rabbit Hole is cocky, slick, and brilliant as he stays ten steps ahead of his opponents.

When he's suddenly accused of murders he didn't commit, Weir goes on the run and uses a team of unlikely allies to prove his innocence and search for the truth. Aside from Sutherland, the ensemble features Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Meta Golding (Empire), Enid Graham (Mare of Easttown), Walt Klink (Arctic Circle), and Rob Yang (The Menu). Created by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (This Is Us), Rabbit Hole is an espionage thriller that spotlights the power of disinformation and its ability to control the population.
