PASADENA, Calif. (AP) HBO Max will debut an anthology series called “The Uninhabited Earth” featuring fictional stories about what could result from Earth's climate change.

It's inspired by David Wallace-Wells' best-selling book and New York magazine article of the same name. Writer Adam McKay will write and direct the first episode.

The series will then enlist other directors and writers to create episodes that focus on the unease with how the Earth is in a delicate state.
