Helmed by Miguel Sapochnik, the forthcoming title sees Hanks portray robotics engineer and world apocalypse survivor Finch, who has spent the last decade living in an underground bunker with his robotic dog, Goodyear. Finch creates a robot, portrayed by Jones, to serve as Goodyear’s caretaker when he is no longer able to care for his friend:
“As the trio embarks on a perilous journey into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation, who names himself Jeff, the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive. Their road trip is paved with both challenges and humor, as it’s as difficult for Finch to goad Jeff and Goodyear to get along as it is for him to manage the dangers of the new world.”
Watch the trailer above. Finch premieres on Apple TV+ on November 5.
