Hollywood star Jason Momoa is set for the main role in a new Apple TV+ series.

Jason Momoa

‘Chief of War’ tells the story of Hawaii’s colonization and indigenous unification against an imminent threat. Apple has greenlighted production of the show which means there’s no need for a pilot episode- the Cupertino-based company has given it a straight-to-series mark, which shows confidence in Momoa’s ability.

Jason Momoa will be the writer, executive producer and actor in the 8-part series. He will co-create with Thomas Pa’a Sibbett, who’s known for his work in ‘The Last Manhunt’ and ‘Braven’. Momoa is a native of Hawaii and is known in Apple TV+ ‘See’ and HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’.

The actor will also be making an appearance in the third season of Apple TV+ original series ‘See’, where he’s cast as the lead.

Apple TV+ costs $4.99 a month and features original content such as ‘Ted Lasso’, ‘CODA’ and ‘Greyhound’, among others.
