HBO Max introduced right this moment that it’s making a new sequence primarily based on the common leisure app, Calm. The 30-minute, 10-episode sequence, A World of Calm, will function the identical story time narration type that the app is understood for, plus “mesmeric imagery,” HBO says. HBO is working on its new present in collaboration with Nutopia, the workforce behind Nat Geo’s sequence One Unusual Rock and Disney+’s The World In accordance to Jeff Goldblum.
A few of the actors already slated to narrate the episodes may sound acquainted to you, together with Mahershala Ali, Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Lucy Liu, Cillian Murphy, and Keanu Reeves.
Sure, Keanu Reeves. Allow us to take a second.
Now if you haven’t used Calm earlier than, right here’s a fast overview: It’s an app geared towards extra seasoned meditators, with guided classes, respiratory visualization workout routines, a massive number of ambient music, and, after all, sleep tales which might be narrated by recognizable voices, like Recreation of Thrones actor Jerome Flynn.

To get a style of what to count on from the TV present, download the app, use the free trial, then think about what it might be like to hear Keanu Reeves studying you to sleep. You’re getting relaxed and sleepy simply fascinated about it, aren’t you? Me too. Keanu Reeves might narrate all the gory particulars of his John Wick motion pictures and my anxiousness and stress ranges would go down sufficient to make me sleep by the evening like a child. He might whisper about demons, cybernetic implants, or going again in time to do a historical past venture, and he’d nonetheless put me to sleep quicker than a double dose of over-the-counter melatonin.
I discover Reeves’s voice very soothing. His soft-spoken, ending monologue in The Matrix nonetheless give me tingles, in the good ASMR sort of method. I typically go to sleep to soft-spoken or whispered ASMR each evening as a result of [gestures widely] the state of the world at this second. This HBO Max present couldn’t come at a higher time. Sadly, HBO has not introduced an official launch date but, however I hope for all of our sakes that it debuts quickly. The world wants Keanu.
