Enraged by Hari's claims, the ruling Cleons — a long line of emperor clones — fear their unrivalled reign may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.”
David S. Goyer (Batman Begins) is on board to lead the project, with Robyn Asimov, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost serving as executive producers. The show also features an impressive international cast, starring Emmy Award nominees Jared Harris and Lee Pace. Other cast members include Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton, Alfred Enoch, and rising stars Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey. You can watch the trailer for the first season of Foundation below:
