Amanda Seyfried will star alongside Tom Holland in the new anthology series ‘The Crowded Room’. Apple TV Plus was the one who broke the news. Rya, played by Seyfried, is a clinical psychologist who is dealing with the most difficult case of her career.

Season 1 is a 10-episode thriller based in part on Goldsman’s own life and Daniel Keyes’ biography ‘The Minds of Billy Milligan’, reports variety.com.
As previously announced, Tom plays the leading role of Danny Sullivan. Holland also executive produces alongside Goldsman. Kornel Mundruczo is attached as director and executive producer for the first season.
