Trailers for Apple TV+ Premieres

Apple TV+ today released trailers for a new thriller and Prehistoric Planet 2.

City on Fire is an eight-part adaptation of the Garth Risk Hallberg novel by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl, The O.C.).

The music-driven family saga will debut with three episodes of May 12, with the rest of the series rolling out weekly. Here’s the blurb:

An NYU student is shot in Central Park on the Fourth of July, 2003. Samantha is alone; there are no witnesses and very little physical evidence. Her friends’ band is playing at her favourite downtown club but she leaves to meet someone, promising to return. She never does. As the crime against Samantha is investigated, she’s revealed to be the crucial connection between a series of mysterious citywide fires, the downtown music scene, and a wealthy uptown real estate family fraying under the strain of the many secrets they keep.
Chase Sui Wonders stars as Samantha and Wyatt Oleff as her friend Charlie, who is struggling to cope with the death of his father on 9/11 two years earlier. After Samantha is shot, he stops at nothing to unravel the mystery of what happened.

Apple TV+ also shared the first-look image and teaser for season two of the award-winning natural history seriesPrehistoric Planet, from executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton and BBC Studios Natural History Unit.

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, and with an original score by Hans Zimmer, Anže Rozman and Kara Talve for Bleeding Fingers Music, it will debut in a five-day, week-long event from May 22.

The teaser traverses the globe as it would have been millions of years ago, using the latest scientific research and stunning visual effects to reveal never-before-seen species on-screen, including:

  • Isisaurus – An Indian sauropod (long-necked, plant-eating dinosaur) that made its home in an extreme volcanic region known as the Deccan Traps, laying eggs in volcanic heated terrain.
  • Pectinodon – a fierce hunter and fond parent, this bird-like North American feathered dinosaur was part of the troodontid family. A sharp-clawed, long-legged predator, it was an adaptable hunter, its teeth and jaws suggesting that many sorts of small animals would have been on the menu.
  • Quetzalcoatlus and Hatzegopteryx – The biggest creatures ever to soar the skies, these gargantuan pterosaurs (prehistoric flying reptiles) were the size of a giraffe or small aircraft and are some of “Prehistoric Planet’s” most charismatic characters.
