Edward Norton, Keri Russell and Michael Gandolfini have joined Meryl Streep, Daveed Diggs, Gemma Chan, David Schwimmer and more in Apple TV+’s upcoming climate change anthology series Extrapolations.
Scott Z. Burns, who produced An Inconvenient Truth and wrote true story dramas such as The Informant! and Contagion is serving as writer, director and showrunner.
The series will take eight interconnected episodes to delve into how impending changes to the planet will ultimately affect every aspect of the way people experience life in ways such as love, faith, work, and family. While we don’t yet know Streep’s lead role in the series, Norton will play a scientist named Jonathan Chopin, with Gandolfini as his son and Russell as Olivia Drew, a gun for hire.
Other announced actors include Cherry Jones, who will play the President of the United States, and Indira Varma, who will play an inventor named Gita Mishra.
Extrapolations joins a host of other in-development Apple TV+ content as the streamer seeks to keep pace with its bigger counterparts.
Other upcoming projects include WeCrashed, which stars Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway and chronicles the rise and fall of WeWork, thriller series Severance starring Adam Scott, and true crime drama series In With The Devil.
Extrapolations currently doesn’t have a release date. Apple competitor Netflix have their own climate change drama coming up – Adam McKay‘s star-studded film Don’t Look Up, which arrives on Christmas Eve.
