HBO Max shines A-list stars for relaxation show

L-R: Mahershala Ali, Idris Elba and Nicole Kidman

US streaming service HBO Max has ordered a 10-part series aimed at helping people relax, and featuring a slew of A-list stars.

A World Of Calm, from factual prodco Nutopia and the makers of meditation app Calm, will feature narration from stars such as Mahershala Ali, Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Lucy Liu, Cillian Murphy, and Keanu Reeves, combined with “mesmeric imagery”.

HBO describes the show as “a timely antidote for our modern lives” with each half-hour episode taking audiences on “an immersive visual journey into another world.”

Jane Root, Nicola Moody, Michael Acton Smith and Chris Advansun will serve as executive producers, and Sara Brailsford and Fiona Caldwell as co-executive producers.

“With the considerable amount of stress and chaos we are all experiencing at this particularly challenging time, we could all use a bit of guided relaxation and A World Of Calm is here to help,” said Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president of non-fiction and kids programming for HBO Max. “With soothing imagery and tranquil narration, this is one HBO Max original that we hope becomes part of your daily routine.”
