Priyanka Chopra Jonas has joined a prominent list of narrators for HBO Max’s upcoming web series ‘A World of Calm’. It will begin streaming from October 1.
Her name was announced alongside Kate Winslet, who now join the likes of Mahershala Ali, Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Lucy Liu, Cillian Murphy, and Keanu Reeves as narrators.
A World of Calm is a collaboration between makers of the “sleep and meditation” app Calm and Nutopia, the team responsible for ‘One Strange Rock’ on Nat Geo.
The official synopsis by WarnerMedia reads:
“A timely antidote for our modern lives, each half-hour episode takes audiences on an immersive visual journey into another world. Building on the record-breaking success of Calm’s Sleep Stories™ – bedtime stories for grown-ups with over 250m listens – each relaxing tale is designed to transform how you feel.
“Transporting the viewer into tranquillity through scientifically-engineered narratives, enchanting music and astounding footage, to naturally calm your body and soothe the mind. Each story is brought to life by a different iconic voice and will take viewers on a journey everywhere from a noodle maker’s kitchen in Seattle, to the forests of Latvia, and beyond our solar system to the outer stretches of the universe.”
Apart from A World of Calm, Chopra Jonas is set to star in high-profile OTT titles for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
She will be part of a superhero film for kids on Netflix as well as lead the platform’s adaptation of the Aravind Adiga novel ‘The White Tiger’ alongside Rajkummar Rao.
On Amazon, Chopra Jonas will be seen opposite Richard Madden in ‘Citadel’, a web series helmed by the Russo Brothers.
Chopra Jonas also has a deal with the Jeff Bezos-owned media giant to produce a ‘sangeet’ series along with her husband Nick Jonas.
