The ten-episode anthology series will be written by Academy Award-winner Akiva Goldsman, best known for his work on Batman & Robin (1997), A Beautiful Mind (2001) and Cinderella Man (2005).
The show’s first season will be inspired by the 1981 book The Minds of Billy Milligan by Daniel Keyes, a true tale about a man tormented by 24 different personalities fighting for supremacy over his body. Milligan was the first person in the U.S. to be acquitted of a major crime due to multiple-personality disorder, or dissociative identity disorder as it’s known today.
