I don’t know about you but I’m more than ready for a half-hour series that helps me temporarily shutdown worries and distressing thoughts about the state of the world and relax. HBO Max’s A World of Calm, which just debuted an official trailer, is hoping to offer a brief, much-needed respite from the world.
The 10 episode season features an all-star list of narrators including Mahershala Ali, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Lucy Liu, Cillian Murphy, Keanu Reeves, and Kate Winslet.
A World of Calm launches on HBO Max on October 1, 2020.
