Apple TV+ has today announced a series order for “Roar,” a new anthology series of darkly comic feminist fables starring Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman, Emmy Award winners Cynthia Erivo and Merritt Wever, and Golden Globe nominee Alison Brie, among others.
Based on a book of short stories by Cecelia Ahern, “Roar” is created by Liz Flahive and Carly Menscha and features a collection of eight half-hour genre-bending episodes told from a uniquely female point of view.
In addition to starring, Kidman will executive produce alongside Per Saari via Blossom Films. Emmy Award-winning producer Bruna Papandrea, Steve Hutensky, and Allie Goss will executive produce on behalf of Made Up Stories.
Flahive and Mensch will create, showrun and serve as executive producers. Theresa Park will serve as executive producer for her Per Capita Productions and author Cecelia Ahern will executive produce through Greenlight Go. “Roar” will be produced for Apple by Endeavor Content.
The new series will also make its global debut exclusively on Apple TV+ at an unannounced date.
