Roar Trailer Released by Apple TV+

Streaming service Apple TV+ continues to build an impressive library of compelling original titles, the latest of which being the dark comedy Roar, which has just earned its first trailer. The anthology series has brought together an immensely talented roster of performers to bring each standalone story to life, with the series coming from creators and co-showrunners Carly Mensch and Liz Flahive, who previously delivered audiences the Netflix series GLOW. Roar is inspired by a series of short stories by Cecelia Ahern. You can check out the first trailer for Roar below before all eight episodes of the series debut on Apple TV+ on April 15th. 

Per press release, "The gripping trailer highlights the award-winning cast of actors that star across the eight distinct stories, including Academy, Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos), who also executive produces; Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo (Harriet); six-time Emmy Award-nominee Issa Rae (Insecure); Emmy Award winner Merritt Wever (Unbelievable); SAG Award nominee Alison Brie (Happiest Season, GLOW); three-time Emmy Award-nominee Betty Gilpin (GLOWThe Tomorrow War); Meera Syal (Yesterday), Fivel Stewart (Atypical), and Kara Hayward (Us).

"Roar is an anthology series of darkly comic feminist fables. Spanning genres from magical realism to psychological horror, these eight stand-alone stories feature ordinary women in some pretty extraordinary circumstances. In Roar, women eat photographs, date ducks, live on shelves like trophies. And yet, their struggles are universal.

"Each installment of the anthology series will also feature notable stars such as Nick Kroll (Big Mouth), Judy Davis (Nitram), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man: No Way Home), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Jason Mantzoukas (Big Mouth), Chris Lowell (GLOW), Ego Nwodim (Saturday Night Live), Griffin Matthews (The Flight Attendant), Peter Facinelli (YesterYear), Simon Baker (The Mentalist), Hugh Dancy (Law & Order), Jillian Bell (Brittany Runs a Marathon), Bernard White (Evil Eye), Justin Kirk (Weeds), and more.

"In addition to starring in one of the anthology's episodes, Kidman executive produces alongside Per Saari and their Emmy Award-winning Blossom Films. Emmy Award-winning producer Bruna Papandrea, Steve Hutensky, and Allie Goss executive produce on behalf of Made Up Stories. Creators Flahive and Mensch serve as executive producers and co-showrunners. Author Cecelia Ahern executive produces through Greenlight Go and Theresa Park executive produces for her Per Capita Productions. Roar is produced for Apple by Endeavor Content."

All eight episodes of Roar premieres on Apple TV+ on April 15th.
