Roar Star Fivel Stewart On Telling 'Empowering' And Progressive Western Stories Alongside Yellowstone
For the century+ that Westerns have existed in Hollywood, the genre still very much belongs to white male figures. Sure, there've been numerous badass women in the Old West over the years, including in the hit series Yellowstone, but there’s yet to be a story fully reliant on a female-led storyline. However, the upcoming Apple TV+ anthology series Roar does have one of those, and it’s a revenge tale starring Fivel Stewart and Alfred Molina.
The creators of “GLOW” are back at it again. Following the cancellation of the Netflix series after four seasons, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch have brought the works of author Cecelia Ahern to life in a new series, “Roar.” Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin of wrestling fame are now joined by Cynthia Erivo, Issa Rae, and Fivel Stewart.
Apple TV+’s anthology series Roar features eight stand-alone episodes, each telling a powerful story of women facing adversity and responding in unique ways. Alison Brie, Cynthia Erivo, Merrit Wever, Fivel Stewart, Nicole Kidman, Issa Rae, and Betty Gilpin star in their own episodes based on short stories by acclaimed writer Cecelia Ahern, with season one addressing relatable issues in surreal ways.
Based on a book of short stories by Cecelia Ahern, Roar is the first series to be released under Roar creators and co-showrunners Carly Mensch and Liz Flahive’s (GLOW) overall deal with Apple TV+. Set to debut globally with all 8 episodes on Friday, April 15, 2022, Roar offers an insightful, poignant, and sometimes hilarious portrait of what it means to be a woman today. Featuring a unique blend of magical realism, familiar domestic and professional scenarios, and futuristic worlds, these eight stories mirror the dilemmas of ordinary women in accessible yet surprising ways. How they emerge from their respective journeys speaks to the resiliency that exists within themselves, and with all women.
