"An unexpected treat for today is the first teaser for Apple's new science fiction saga FOUNDATION which will air next year based on the classic and award winning novel by Isaac Asimov. The clip starts with creator and director David S. Goyer talking about the production of the epic saga, which follows a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization after the fall of the Galactic Empire.

When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon (Jared Harris) predicts the impending fall of the Empire, ruled by Lee Pace, he and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization.
