Apple TV+ has revealed the trailers for the drama CODA and the docuseries Watch the Sound with Mark Ronson.
CODA will premiere on Apple TV+ and in select theaters on August 13, while the Mark Ronson series will debut on the streaming service on July 30.
In CODA, 17-year-old Ruby (Emilia Jones) is the sole hearing member of a deaf family – a CODA, child of deaf adults. Her life revolves around acting as interpreter for her parents (Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur) and working on the family’s struggling fishing boat every day before school with her father and older brother (Daniel Durant).
But when Ruby joins her high school’s choir club, she discovers a gift for singing and soon finds herself drawn to her duet partner Miles (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo). Encouraged by her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster (Eugenio Derbez) to apply to a prestigious music school, Ruby finds herself torn between the obligations she feels to her family and the pursuit of her own dreams.
Written and directed by Siân Heder, CODA was presented in the U.S. Dramatic Competition category at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival and became the first film to be honored with an unprecedented four awards at the festival.
The awards included the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Cast, the Directing Award, the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize. CODA is produced by Vendome Pictures and Pathé.
