Apple TV+ Debuts Trailer for Female-Themed Anthology Series “Roar”

Apple TV+ has today released the first official trailer for the darkly comedic anthology series, “Roar” which promises audiences an insightful, poignant and occasionally hilarious portrayal of what being a woman means in this day and age.

The show will be the first release under the creators and co-directors Carly Mensch and Liz Flahive‘s (“Glow”) overall deal with Apple TV+ and will feature a star-studded lineup of actors including Academy, Emmy, and Golden Globe Award winner Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”) – also serving as an Executive Producer; Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”); six-time Emmy nominee Issa Rae (“Insecure”); Emmy Award winner (“Unbelievable”); SAG nominee Alison Brie (“Happiest Season”); three-time Emmy nominee Betty Gilpin (“The Tomorrow War”); and Meera Syal (“Yesterday”), Fivel Stewart (“Atypical” and who will be in theaters next week in UMMA alongside Sandra Oh) and Kara Hayward (“Us”).

Based on international bestselling author Cecelia Ahern’s book of short stories of the same name, the series will consist of eight of the thirty stories featured in the original book, each one bringing its own blend of magical realism, familiar domestic and professional settings, and futuristic worlds to dissect the everyday quandaries of ordinary women in an accessible yet striking way. The way each woman rises to the occasion in their respective stories to overcome feelings of guilt, confusion, frustration, intimidation, and exhaustion speaks wonders to the resilience that exists in themselves, and in all women.

Viewers don’t have to wait long before getting to experience these fascinating tales that capture moments when we all want to “Roar” when the series premieres globally with all eight episodes on Friday, April 15 exclusively on Apple TV+.
