Nicole Kidman has really begun to show her power in Hollywood. Over the past few years, Kidman has emerged as a force of nature between awards and production credits. Kidman not only starred in and helped produce “Big Little Lies,” but she won an Emmy for her role. She got nominated for an Oscar for “Lion” in 2017. She’s got a seemingly endless train of other prestige projects, including “Destroyer” and “Boy Erased” this Fall. With her power, it’s important to pay attention to what she brings to any medium, which makes “Roar” an interesting choice for her as a producer.
Kidman will co-produce “Roar,” which comes from author Cecelia Ahern. The book will feature 30 short stories, providing plenty of fodder for stories to tell. Ahern is also well known because a pair of her novels have been adapted to the big screen before. Ahern’s novels “P.S. I Love You,” and “Love, Rosie” have both been made into films. With over 5 million novels sold, she’ll bring a built-in fanbase to the show.
What might be the most exciting bit of all is that the co-creators of “G.L.O.W.,” Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch are also on board. They will not only executive produce but will also serve as showrunners. Flahive and Mensch have considerable television experience over their career. They’ve written on “Weeds,” “Orange is the New Black,” and “Nurse Jackie” since the early 2000s. “G.L.O.W.” is among the most exciting shows on Netflix. With that group of shows on their resume, we should really expect something interesting from “Roar.” It’s unknown of Kidman will actually star in the show, or if the series will cover an anthology style, but with the talent already brought together, this should be exciting.
