Apple TV+ has released the trailer for ‘Roar,’ the highly anticipated darkly comedic anthology series set to debut globally with all eight episodes on Friday, April 15.
Based on a book of short stories by Cecelia Ahern, spanning genres from magical realism to psychological horror, these eight stand-alone stories feature ordinary women in some pretty extraordinary circumstances. In the series, women eat photographs, date ducks, live on shelves like trophies. And yet, their struggles are universal.
