Apple TV+ digs deep for Silo
Hugh Howey wrote and independently published the Silo series that went on to become New York Times bestsellers. The books are set in a ruined and toxic future where a community exists in a giant silo underground. It’s a society full of regulations that people believe are meant to protect them.
But no one knows who built the refuge or when. Rebecca Ferguson will star as Juliette, who’ll be part of solving the mystery after the murder of a loved one.
