Apple TV+ excitedly announced it has landed the seven-part thriller, “Hijack,” executive produced and starring Idris Elba.
Told in real-time, “Hijack” is a tense thriller that follows the journey of a hijacked plane as it makes its way to London over a seven-hour flight, as authorities on the ground scramble for answers.
Elba will star as Sam Nelson, an accomplished negotiator in the business world who needs to step up and use all his guile to try and save the lives of the passengers — but his high-risk strategy could be his undoing.
The series marks the first project from Idris Elba’s first-look deal with Apple TV+ and his Green Door Pictures.
I will keep you posted as more scoop becomes available about this project.
Oh, and in other Idris news…he and his wife, Sabrina Elba, recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary.
