DESCRIPTION:
(from Apple's press release, April 2022) Apple TV+ today announced it has landed "Hijack," a new seven-part thriller starring SAG winning and Emmy Award nominated Idris Elba ("Sonic the Hedgehog 2", "Luther") who will also serve as executive producer, and marks the first project that will hail from Elba's first-look deal with Apple TV+ and his Green Door Pictures.

Elba will star as 'Sam Nelson,' an accomplished negotiator in the business world who needs to step up and use all his guile to try and save the lives of the passengers - but, his high-risk strategy could be his undoing.
