The nameless series, which will feature Henry Golding as the star of ” Crazy Rich Asians“, is being hyped up to the top. Based on the thriller series of the same title by Dean Koontz, an American author. The upcoming project is being produced by SK Global. SK Global co-financed and produced Crazy Rich Asians and recently signed a first-look agreement with Golding and Long House Productions (via Deadline).
Golding issued a statement upon the announcement of their partnership. It stated, “I couldn’t be more excited about the partnership between Long House & SK Global.” Creatively, our synergy has been perfected and SK Global’s reach in the Asian market, where there are many rich stories to be told, is invaluable. Now viewers will have a first glimpse at the content Golding and SK Global will release with “Nameless.” Longhouse and The Mazur Kaplan Company will produce “Nameless”, along with SK Global.
When will Nameless be available?
Deadline reported Henry Golding’s casting in December 2021 as an announcement that the book series would be adapted for television. We can therefore assume that the series is still very much in pre-production. In fact, there is no IMDb page for the upcoming production. The Deadline piece doesn’t even mention the streaming service or network “Nameless” will air the series on. This means that the show has not yet been picked-up by a streaming service or network. It will be easier to determine a premiere date once a streaming service or network has claimed the project.
Although it is not clear when the series will be available on our screens, it appears that those involved are eager to bring “Nameless” to life. Golding released the following statement: “I have long been fascinated with the idea of telling a mystery thriller through an episodic format. It was an honor to collaborate with Dean Koontz, the master of suspense thrillers. It will be a thrilling journey to bring this extraordinary series to life with Mazur Kaplan and my partners SK Global. We’ll also look to give Dean’s characters a new and fresh perspective.
Who will be named?
Henry Golding, the only actor to be cast in “Nameless,” is currently the sole actor. He will play the title character, a man who has amnesia. Golding was the lead role in “Crazy Rich Asians,” a romantic comedy that was wildly successful in 2018. He played Nick Young, a male romantic lead, opposite Constance Wu.

Dean Koontz, the author of the source material is the one who could not be happier about his casting in “Nameless.” He said, via Deadline, “I’m thrilled to have my material in such dedicated and accomplished producers. And when I heard Henry Golding’s name, I shouted, “Yes!” Mr. Golding would be perfect and memorable as Nameless.”
