Based mostly on this teaser trailer, the manufacturing worth for “Silo” appears to be fairly spectacular, on par with what we noticed within the Apple TV+ adaptation of “Basis,” primarily based on one other well-known collection of sci-fi tales from Isaac Asimov. Whereas we’re as regards to diversifications, “Silo” seems to be taking a web page from “The Street” in that even the characters do not know what led to the tip of the world. There’s additionally a touch of M. Evening Shyamalan’s “The Village” (and its entire story of a group that isolates itself for concern of the surface world) in the way in which David Oyelowo’s character declares: “We have no idea why there is no such thing as a life outdoors the silo. We solely know that right here is secure, and there may be not.”
What’s attention-grabbing about “Silo” is that AMC Studios is producing this collection, however as a substitute of taking it to its personal streaming service, AMC+, the studio is outsourcing its distribution to Apple TV+. With “Silo” exhibiting promise and the Emmy-winning “Ted Lasso” returning to the streamer for its third — and probably closing — season this month, Apple TV+ is unquestionably giving viewers incentive to leap on or restart a subscription this spring.
This is the official synopsis for “Silo:” “In a ruined and poisonous future, hundreds dwell in an enormous silo deep underground. After its sheriff breaks a cardinal rule and residents die mysteriously, engineer Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson) begins to uncover stunning secrets and techniques and the reality concerning the silo.”
“Silo” debuts on Apple TV+ on Friday, Might 5, 2023.
