"Roar" will be produced for Apple by Endeavor Content.

"Roar" will join a growing lineup of Apple Original anthology series including the Film Independent Spirit, GLAAD and NAACP Image Award-nominated "Little America." The new series will also make its global debut on Apple TV+ alongside highly anticipated female-led Apple Originals including "Physical," a new dramedy from creator Annie Weisman, and starring and executive produced by Rose Byrne that will premiere this summer; "The Last Thing He Told Me," starring Julia Roberts, and written by Oscar winner Josh Singer and Laura Dave; "High Desert," from creator and writer Nancy Fichman, and starring and executive produced by Patricia Arquette; "Lessons in Chemistry," starring and executive produced by Brie Larson, and written and executive produced by written by Susannah Grant; the second season of Emmy, Critics Choice and SAG award-winning and Golden Globe Award-nominated series "The Morning Show"; the second season of NAACP Image Award-winning "Truth Be Told," from creator Nichelle Tramble Spellman, and starring Octavia Spencer and Kate Hudson; and more.
