Apple TV+ today announced a series order for “Wool,” a world building drama series based on Hugh Howey’s New York Times bestselling trilogy of dystopian novels that will star Rebecca Ferguson (“Dune,” “Mission: Impossible” films), who will also serve as executive producer. “Wool” will be written by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Graham Yost (“Band of Brothers,” “Justified”) and directed by Academy Award nominee Morten Tyldum (“Defending Jacob,” “The Imitation Game”).

“Wool” is a set in a ruined and toxic future where a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Ferguson will star as ‘Juliette,’ an independent and hardworking engineer.

The series is executive produced by Ferguson, Yost and Tyldum, alongside author Hugh Howey. Remi Aubuchon, Nina Jack and Ingrid Escajeda will also serve as executive producers on the drama, produced by AMC Studios.

“Wool” joins Apple TV+’s growing roster of award-winning television series including the SAG, Critics Choice and Golden Globe Award-winning “Ted Lasso”; Emmy, Critics Choice and SAG Award-winning “The Morning Show”; NAACP Image Award-winning “Truth Be Told”; as well as highly anticipated series “Physical,” a new dramedy from creator Annie Weisman, and starring and executive produced by Rose Byrne; “Lisey’s Story,” starring and executive produced by Academy Award winner Julianne Moore, created by Stephen King, and executive produced by J.J. Abrams; “The Shrink Next Door” starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd; “WeCrashed” starring and executive produced by Academy and SAG Award winners Anne Hathaway and Jared Leto; “Five Days At Memorial” from Academy Award winner John Ridley and Emmy Award winner Carlton Cuse; and “Foundation,” based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov, and created by David S. Goyer.

Super psyched on this news. Was wondering when someone would get around to doing this.

Not sure how I missed this announcement - but I'm excited now!! I loved the Wool series (some of the other author's playing in the Wool playground were hit and miss - but I did get introduced to Jason Gurley, whose story I enjoyed, plus he's just a great guy in person too!)

Also looks like they got Tim Robbins to play Bernard - and the picture they used is pretty much how I remember this character looking.
