Are true crime shows and thrillers up your alley? If so, Apple’s upcoming TV+ series, an audio thriller—yes, you read that right—which premieres on 19 March will interest you.
Apple has released a trailer for Calls, and based on the video, it is a series told entirely through phone conversations.
There are also minimal visuals in the trailer, only abstract illustrations corresponding with the audio carrying the story. The artistic decision looks to make for a gripping and unsettling viewing/listening experience.
Apple describes its new series as a “groundbreaking immersive television experience that masterfully uses only audio and minimal abstract visuals to tell bone-chilling snackable stories.” It will follow “darkly dramatic mystery” that is revealed over phone conversations that “become surreal as the characters face growingly unsettling experiences.”
The series will feature appearances from Aubrey Plaza, Lily Collins, Nick Jonas, Pedro Dawson, and more. A total of nine 12-minute episodes will be released on Apple TV+ on 19 March.
The series is directed by horror filmmaker Fede Álvarez, and adapted from Timothée Hochet’s French series.
