TORONTO (April 29, 2019) – It’s the apocalypse, but slightly more fun. As was just revealed today from the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, the newest original series from Crave is WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE, a smart, distinctive, and caustic documentary about the end of the world. The six-episode Crave Original Documentary was developed in partnership with 90th Parallel Productions and goes into production this summer.

Drawing together science, psychology, pop culture, and philosophy, WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE meets viewers’ fascination with the apocalypse head-on.
