Apple TV+ has given a straight-to-series order to Chief of War, a limited series starring, written and executive produced by Jason Momoa. It hails from Endeavor Content and Chernin Entertainment.
Created by Momoa and Thomas Pa’a Sibbett, the eight-episode Chief of War follows the epic and unprecedented telling of the unification and colonization of Hawaii from an indigenous point of view.
Momoa and Sibbett executive produce with Francis Lawrence, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, Erik Holmberg and Doug Jung who also serves as showrunner. Justin Chon is in negotiations to direct the first two episodes.
The project marks the first time Momoa has written for television.
Momoa currently stars in Apple TV+’s post-apocalyptic drama series See, which has been renewed for a third season.
