We discuss the Peacock series The Calling, including the release date, time, plot synopsis, cast, and trailer.

David E. Kelly keeps getting busy with TV content, and this time it’s on Peacock. His latest procedural is The Calling, an adaptation of Dror Mishani’s novel that follows an NYPD detective with a unique ability. Even though it may not have been his most promoted series so far, there are some big names attached, including Rain Man director Barry Levinson, father of Euphorias Sam Levinson, and none other than Hans Zimmer himself co-arranging the score. If you have not heard of The Calling, we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Peacock series The Calling plot synopsis

Here is the official plot synopsis:

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.”

Our opinion of the premise

I am a big fan of procedurals and an even bigger fan of David E. Kelly. This series might just be the perfect appetizer while we wait for Love and Death next year, his new HBO Max series starring Elizabeth Olsen and Jesse Plemons, about Candy Montgomery. The problem with The Calling for me is that the premise, as well as the trailer, seem quite generic — a cop getting a new partner for a key case and getting so wrapped up in it he starts to lose focus. We’ve seen it plenty of times, and while this time it seems to have a supernatural angle, which might be refreshing, to me, it’s the talent behind the camera that really sold me on it.

Barry Levinson has also been absent for a while, and even though I am also more interested in another project that he’s supposedly doing soon (Francis and the Godfather, with Oscar Isaac reportedly playing Francis Ford Coppola), I will definitely give this a shot while I wait for that movie.

The Calling release date

The series will be released on Peacock on November 10, 2022. According to IMDb, it will be 10 episodes long.
