Now this is different. Kinda pulling together the best of podcasts, classic radio plays and video (let’s just call all this multimedia), Apple TV+ series Calls is an auditory mystery series that premieres on the channel from 19th March, and features an all-star voice cast that includes Aubrey Plaza, Pedro Pascal, Rosario Dawson, Nick Jonas, Lily Collins, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
Promising to be a ‘genre-bending thriller’, Calls, which premieres globally with all nine episodes of the first season on Friday, March 19, the series is based on the CANAL+ French series of the same name created by Timothée Hochet. What I like about the prospect of this is how it’ll rely on your imagination, as well as events, to really pull you in. Directed by Fede Álvarez (Don’t Breathe), the show uses audio and minimal abstract visuals to tell nine chilling, short-form stories. Find out more for yourself:
