Apple TV+ is bringing another documentary series to its platform. Apple has inked a deal to bring Scott Z. Burns’ climate change anthology series “Extrapolations” to its streaming service, according to a report on Wednesday.
Apple TV+ is the Cupertino tech giant’s video streaming service which offers a variety of original content including drama, kids shows, movies, talk shows, documentaries, and more. In a short span of time, since its launch, the service has won accolades and nominations for titles like Peanuts, The Morning Show, and others.
Apple TV+ picks up ‘Extrapolations’, a series on climate change
Burns will write, direct and executive produce the 10-episode series. The interconnected stories will track the “worldwide battle for our mutual survival spanning the 21st century.”
“It is said to tell intimate, unanticipated stories of how the upcoming changes to our planet will affect love, faith, work and family on a personal and human scale. Told over a season of 10 interconnected episodes, each story in the scripted series will track the worldwide battle for our mutual survival spanning the 21st century.”
Burns says that most projects on climate change tend to focus on the science of the issue, but his work will focus on the effect climate change will have on people.
“Most of the storytelling around climate change has focused on the science and getting people to accept it,” said Burns. “Our aim with ‘Extrapolations’ is to move beyond science and use drama, comedy, mystery and every other genre to allow us to consider how every aspect of our world is going to be changing in the years ahead. We know the climate is going to change – ‘Extrapolations’ asks, can we change, too?”
Apple will partner with production company Media Res on the project. The company is responsible for Apple TV+ drama “The Morning Show” and has signed on to develop upcoming shows “Pachinko” and a CIA drama featuring Brie Larson.
For $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial, Apple TV Plus is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple TV via the Apple TV app. It is also compatible with selected Samsung and LG smart TVs, Roku devices, Amazon Fire TV, and tv.apple.com.
