About ‘The Crowded Room’
Here’s how the series is described: “The Crowded Room” is a seasonal anthology that will be produced by Apple Studios and New Regency, with Academy Award winner Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind”) set to write and executive produce.
The series will explore the true and inspirational stories of those who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness. The anthology’s 10-episode first season is a ] thriller, inspired by the award-winning biography “The Minds of Billy Milligan” by Daniel Keyes. It tells the story of Billy Milligan (Holland), the first person ever acquitted of a crime because of multiple personality disorder (now known as dissociative identity disorder).
According to Deadline, Chase plays Marlin Chalmers, Danny’s stepfather, who is a senior counselor at a youth detention facility. Sadoski is Matty Dunne, a police detective investigating Danny’s case. Robins plays Susie, Rya’s (Seyfried) mother. Vartholomeos portrays Mike, one of Danny’s best friends. Thurman-Hawke, in his television debut, plays Jonny, Danny’s classmate and best friend who always has his back. Eikenberry is Doug, Danny’s nemesis since grade school. Zaga plays Philip, a prosecutor on Danny’s case.
