Annie Warbucks and Agatha Hannigan, two names forever connected by events that made one of them the richest girl in the world…and sent the other to prison.  Tomorrow is an original, scripted series set in a post-pandemic New York City, five years after “little orphan” Annie was adopted by billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Lance Reddick, The Wire, Fringe). Now 15, Annie (Abbie Grace Levi), a singer-songwriter/influencer extraordinaire, is about to face the biggest test of her signature positivity when a mystery rocks the Warbucks empire. Annie must rely on her pals from the orphanage, Molly, Tessie and Pepper, and her artificial intelligence “butler” Drake (Alan Ruck, Succession) to save her family. Agatha Hannigan (Tony Award winner Laura Benanti) has spent five years in prison, revisiting her bad choices and stewing about the billionaire and his adopted daughter who put her behind bars. Finally released back into society, Hannigan will have to decide: Does she want to turn her life around, or does she want revenge? From Gen-Z Media, creators of the Peabody Award-winning The Unexplainable Disappearance of Mars Patel and the hit family podcast, Six Minutes, Tomorrow combines the heart, humor and hope of the original stage play with elements of serialized mystery and high stakes adventure.

Our Editor's Take

Gen-Z Media and Wondery continue the story of Annie and her newfound family and wealth. The tale of Annie the orphan became a true American pop culture phenomenon. It made its debut as a comic strip. Then, its stage play adaptation became an enduring theatrical hit. Several movies and television adaptations followed. And now comes Tomorrow, a new podcast starring Abbie Grace Levi, Laura Benanti, and Alan Ruck.

The podcast takes place in New York City five years after Annie's adoption by Oliver Warbucks. The bright-eyed orphan-turned-heiress has grown up. She is articulate and passionate, with big philanthropic dreams to help others.

But Miss Hannigan didn't drop her grudge against the Warbucks family while in prison. She used her weekly Internet access allowance to keep tabs on the family and its empire. Now she's come up with even more of her diabolical schemes. The series is set in recent times, making it more appealing to Gen-Z and Millennial listeners.

This full-cast podcast brings each character to life. Realistic sound effects add to the drama and set the scene. Listeners will be on the edge of their seats as they discover if Annie can find her birth parents. Will her troubled past under the care of Agatha Hannigan come back to haunt her? Hit play on Tomorrow on Amazon Music to follow Annie's continuing journey.
