Ahern’s Greenlight Go Production Label will be producing the series. Per Saari, Steve Hutensky, Kidman, Papandrea and Ahern will also be Roar‘s executive producers.
Kidman is currently busy with other projects like Big Little Lies Season 2 which she stars and executive produced in.

All of those films are scheduled to be release later this year.
