The Crowded Room is a gripping exploration of Danny Sullivan's life, a young man who finds himself arrested for his involvement in a pivotal shooting incident in 1979 New York City. The series unravels through a series of interviews between Danny and interrogator Rya Goodwin, gradually unveiling the intricacies of his enigmatic past that ultimately led to the fateful event. As Danny introspectively examines his life, he confronts the repercussions of his actions and pivotal moments, embarking on a journey that leads him towards a profound and transformative revelation.
The Crowded Room is an Apple TV+ psychological thriller miniseries from Akiva Goldsman. The series draws its inspiration from Daniel Keyes' nonfiction novel "The Minds of Billy Milligan", published in 1981.

While Tom Holland portrays the character of Danny Sullivan in the series, it is loosely based on the experiences and journey of Milligan.
