The Calling is an all-new investigative drama series from David E. Kelly. Directed and executive produced by Barry Levinson, the series features music by Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro.
The Calling tells the story of NYPD Detective Avraham Avraham, whose belief in mankind is his superpower when it comes to uncovering the truth.
Guided by a deep sense of spirituality and religious principles, Avraham is left to question his own humanity when a seemingly routine investigation turns upside down.
The cast of the eight-episode series includes Jeff Wilbusch, Juliana Canfield, Karen Robinson, and Michael Mosley. David E. Kelley is the showrunner, writer and executive producer.
The executive producers also include Jason Horwitch, Jonathan Shapiro, Matthew Tinker (Kelley’s producing partner), Keshet Studios’ Peter Traugott and Lisa Roos, Keshet International’s Alon Shrutzman, Keshet Media Group’s Avi Nir, and Keshet Broadcasting’s Karni Ziv.
“Dror Mishani wrote a riveting and emotionally complicated series of books, the center of which is Avraham. Avi is a deeply mysterious, spiritual and compelling detective unlike any protagonist I’ve encountered before,” said David E. Kelley.
“Jeff Wilbusch brings him to rich and hypnotic life in front of the camera, and behind the camera Barry Levinson is… Barry Levinson. What a privilege to have him at the helm. Add Hans Zimmer to the mix, and the final product is something we hope thrills, moves, and instills a bit of hope in the audience.”
Also on board are co-executive producer Heather Brewster, and author and executive producer Dror A. Mishani.
The Peacock show comes from Keshet Studios, the U.S. production arm of global content producer and distributor Keshet International, and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studios Group.
