Apple has announced a series order for 'Prime Target,' an eight-episode one-hour conspiracy thriller starring Leo Woodall and Quintessa Swindell.

"Prime Target" features a brilliant young math postgraduate, Edward Brooks (played by Woodall), on the verge of a major breakthrough. If he succeeds in finding a pattern in prime numbers, he will hold the key to every computer in the world. Soon he begins to realize an unseen enemy is trying to destroy his idea before it's even born, which throws him into the orbit of Taylah Sanders, a female NSA agent (played by Swindell) who's been tasked with watching and reporting on the mathematician's behavior. Together they start to unravel the troubling conspiracy Edward is at the heart of.

Created by award-winning writer Steve Thompson ("Sherlock," "Vienna Blood") who also serves as executive producer, the new drama is produced for Apple TV+ by New Regency with Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions. Acclaimed writer and director Brady Hood ("Top Boy," "Great Expectations") directed all eight episodes and also serves as executive producer.

The cast also includes Academy Award nominee and BAFTA Award winner Stephen Rea ("The Crying Game"), BAFTA Award nominee David Morrissey ("Sherwood," "The Walking Dead"), Emmy Award winner Martha Plimpton ("The Regime"), BAFTA and Emmy Award winner Sidse Babett Knudsen ("Borgen"), SAG Award nominee Jason Flemyng ("The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"), BAFTA Award nominee Harry Lloyd ("Game of Thrones"), Ali Suliman ("Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan," "Paradise Now"), Fra Fee ("Rebel Moon," "Hawkeye") and Joseph Mydell ("The Eternal Daughter").

Ed Rubin serves as executive producer for New Regency alongside Beth Pattinson, Emma Broughton, Yariv Milchan, Arnon Milchan and Michael Schaefer. Marina Brackenbury is executive producer for Scott Free Productions along with David W. Zucker and Scott. Series producer is Laura Hastings-Smith, who also serves as executive producer.
