'Extrapolations' climate change series coming to Apple TV+

Apple has inked a deal to bring Scott Z. Burns' climate change anthology series "Extrapolations" to Apple TV+, according to a report on Wednesday.

Burns will write, direct and executive produce the series said to include "intimate, unanticipated stories of how the upcoming changes to our planet will affect love, faith, work and family on a personal and human scale," reports Variety.

"Most of the storytelling around climate change has focused on the science and getting people to accept it," Burns said. "Our aim with Extrapolations' is to move beyond science and use drama, comedy, mystery and every other genre to allow us to consider how every aspect of our world is going to be changing in the years ahead. We know the climate is going to change - Extrapolations' asks, can we change, too?"

Ten scripted episodes are planned, through which a series of interconnected stories will track the "worldwide battle for our mutual survival spanning the 21st century."

Apple's interest in the series was first reported in January.

Burns produced Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" and executive produced the 2017 follow-up "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power." Along with climate change, Burns has tackled other world issues from pandemic to political intrigue in dramatic works "Contagion," "Side Effects," "The Report" and "The Informant!"

Apple will partner with production company Media Res on the project. The firm is responsible for Apple TV+ drama "The Morning Show" and has signed on to develop upcoming shows "Pachinko" and a Brie Larson CIA drama.
