This series has a truly stellar cast.

Another Apple TV+ series will be arriving on our screens just a few days from now. The streaming platform has already given us such great shows as Ted Lasso and Silo, and it's now expanding its creative reach even further.

Little is known about the upcoming British thriller, Hijack. The premise is plain and simple, fitting on a single line: A skilled business negotiator, Sam, gets stuck on a hijacked Dubai-London flight and must find a peaceful way out of the dangerous situation using his professional skills.

One detail about the miniseries is well-known, however - it has a most impressive cast.
