Chief of War, a limited series starring, written, and executive produced by Jason Momoa, has been straight-to-series ordered by Apple TV+. Endeavor Content and Chernin Entertainment are behind it.
Chief of War is an eight-episode series created by Momoa and Thomas Pa’a Sibbett that chronicles the epic and extraordinary story of Hawaii’s unification and colonialism from an indigenous perspective.
Momoa and Sibbett act as executive producers with Francis Lawrence, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, Erik Holmberg, and Doug Jung, who serves as showrunner as well. Justin Chon is currently in discussions to helm the show’s first two installments.
This is Momoa’s first foray into writing for television.
Momoa is presently starring in See, an Apple TV+ post-apocalyptic drama series that has been renewed for a third season.
