Told over a season of 10 interconnected episodes, each story in the scripted series will track the worldwide battle for our mutual survival spanning the 21st century.
Burns previously produced the Oscar-winning climate change documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” in 2006 and executive produced the followup “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” in 2017. His other credits include several films that deal with major world issues, such as “The Report,” “The Informant!,” “Contagion,” “Side Effects,” and “The Laundromat.”
