One of Apple TV+’s most intriguing offerings this year has been the retro sci-fi series, “Hello tomorrow!“, which was launched on February 17, 2023. It offers a slightly more sinister look at an alternative post-war America in the 1950s, where technology advanced at a much faster rate and contrary peddlers ethics sell lunar timeshare scams.
Check out our exclusive clip from the penultimate episode of upcoming Season 1 titled “Certain Forces Once Unleashed”, directed by Stacie Passon and airing Friday, March 31, 2023.
Created by Amit Bhalla and Lucas Jansen, the 10-episode Apple TV+ drama is a brilliant look at a superficial world where space age inventions like flying cars, jet packs, moon excursions, self-popping popcorn, videophones, automatic dog walkers and service industry robots make everyday life something straight out of magazines of golden age sci-fi, Saturday morning soap operas and comic books.
