If you liked big little lies Where Nine Perfect Strangers, we just found your next binge-worthy series. Presented by Apple TV+, Nicole Kidman is set to join Issa Rae, Alison Brie and Cynthia Erivo for a female-led series titled, Roar.

Based on Cecelia Ahern’s 2018 short story collection of the same name, the eight-part series “offers an insightful, poignant, and sometimes hilarious portrait of what it means to be a woman today,” according to the streaming platform. With a combination of magical realism and very familiar home and work situations, the eight short stories reflect the dilemmas of ordinary women.

If neither the cast nor the feminist-fueled plot convinces you to stick around for eight hours straight, maybe the production team will. Behind the camera, the creative trio Bruna Papandrea, Steve Hutensky and Allie Goss of the production company Made Up Stories. You may remember it’s the same team behind Cancellation. Additionally, the aforementioned Kidman, Per Saari, Liz Flahive, and Carly Mensch will serve as executive producers.

The trailer for this highly anticipated series is not yet available, so stay tuned. Roar will premiere worldwide on Apple TV+ starting April 15 with all eight episodes immediately available to watch.
