From writer/director Scott Z. Burns (Contagion), the series looks at the potential effects of climate change on our everyday lives.

Here’s the synopsis for Extrapolations:

Extrapolations is a bracing drama from writer, director and executive producer Scott Z. Burns that introduces a near future where the chaotic effects of climate change have become embedded into our everyday lives. Eight interwoven stories about love, work, faith and family from across the globe will explore the intimate, life-altering choices that must be made when the planet is changing faster than the population.

Every story is different, but the fight for our future is universal. And when the fate of humanity is up against a ticking clock, the battle between courage and complacency has never been more urgent. Are we brave enough to become the solution to our own undoing before it’s too late?

The first three episodes of Extrapolations land at Apple TV+ on March 17th, 2023. Weekly episodes follow on Fridays though until April 21st.
