Apple is gearing up to tackle one of the biggest issues of our time with their upcoming drama series focused on climate change. Titled “Extrapolations,” the series will feature an impressive cast, including “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington and “Black-ish” actress Yara Shahidi.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Extrapolations” will explore the impact of climate change on the planet through a series of interconnected stories. The show will use science-based data to provide an accurate portrayal of the effects of climate change, while also examining the personal and emotional toll it takes on people’s lives.
Harington and Shahidi will play two of the main characters in the series, with Harington portraying a scientist and Shahidi playing a young woman who is forced to confront the reality of climate change after a natural disaster strikes her hometown.
For Harington, “Extrapolations” represents a departure from the fantasy world of “Game of Thrones” and a chance to explore a different kind of storytelling.
“I’m excited to be a part of a project that is trying to do something important,” Harington said in a statement. “This show is going to take a hard look at the impact of climate change and how it affects all of us.” Shahidi, who has been an outspoken advocate for environmental issues, echoed Harington’s sentiments, saying that she was “honored” to be a part of the project.
“Climate change is a global crisis that affects us all, and I’m excited to be a part of a show that is using storytelling to raise awareness and inspire action,” Shahidi said.
“Extrapolations” is being produced by Anonymous Content, the production company behind hit shows like “True Detective” and “Mr. Robot.” The series is part of Apple’s larger push into original programming, as the tech giant seeks to compete with streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.
As the effects of climate change become increasingly apparent around the world, “Extrapolations” is a timely and important series that has the potential to raise awareness and inspire action. With an impressive cast and a commitment to accurate storytelling, the show is poised to make a significant impact in the entertainment industry and beyond.
