Meryl Streep, Kit Harington, Matthew Rhys and David Schwimmer to Star in AppleTV+ Anthology Drama 'Extrapolations'

AppleTV+ has confirmed today that production has begun on the upcoming original anthology drama series Extrapolations created by Scott Z. Burns. The season will produce eight interconnected episodes.

The series will tell stories of how the upcoming changes to the planet will affect love, faith, work and family on a personal and human scale. Each story will track the worldwide battle for our mutual survival spanning the 21st century.

The cast includes Meryl Streep, Sienna Miller, Kit Harington, Tahar Rahim, Matthew Rhys, Daveed Diggs, Gemma Chan, David Schwimmer and Adarsh Gourav.

Burns will write and direct. He will also executive produce alongside Michael Ellenberg, Greg Jacobs, Dorothy Fortenberry and Lindsey Springer. Apple Studios and Media Res will produce.

"The only thing we know for sure about the future is that we are all going there together - and we're taking with us our hopes, our fears, our appetites, our creativity, our capacity for love and our predilection to cause pain," said Burns. "These are the same tools that storytellers have been using since the beginning of time. Our show is just using them to keep time from running out."
