HBO Max Orders Unscripted Series ATLAS OF THE HEART From Dr. Brené Brown

The Eight Episode Series Is Based On Brown's Latest Book Of The Same Name

· HBO Max has given an eight-episode order to Dr. Brené Brown's unscripted series, ATLAS OF THE HEART. The series will utilize Brown's extensive research to explore the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human and provides a new framework for cultivating meaningful connection. Anguish, wonder, awe, anxiety, envy, jealousy, resentment, compassion, empathy, disappointment, regret, and overwhelm are among the wide range of topics that will be examined as the series goes into production in Austin, Texas later this month.

· Logline: For ATLAS OF THE HEART, researcher and five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Brené Brown takes viewers on an interactive journey through the range of emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. Grounded in more than two decades of research, Brown brings together a dynamic mix of powerful storytelling, pop culture references, and a range of impressive researchers to share the language, tools and framework for meaningful connection.

· Sarah Aubrey (Head of Original Content, HBO Max) quote: "At HBO Max, we pride ourselves on telling stories representative of all walks of life, and those stories would mean nothing without the language of emotion and the shared experience. By bringing Dr. Brown's extensive research to life through film, television, and pop culture, we are able to demonstrate deep connection and insight that will resonate with our viewers."

· Dr. Brené Brown quote: "The real gift of expanding our language, practicing this work, and cultivating meaningful connection is being able to go anywhere without the fear of getting lost. When fear, anxiety, and uncertainty leave us feeling adrift and untethered in our lives, our first instinct is to look out into the distance to find the nearest shore. But the shore isn't something outside of us - the solid ground we're seeking is within us. It's not always easy to find, but it's there. I believe the more confident we are about being able to navigate to that place, the more daring our adventures and the more connected we are to ourselves and each other."

· Credits: ATLAS OF THE HEART is executive produced by Brown for Weird Lucy Productions alongside Jesse Ignjatovic, Evan Prager, Barb Bialkowski and Jared Morell for Den of Thieves. Meaghan Rady will serve as executive producer and showrunner.
