It’s hard to get excited for Apple’s upcoming shows without knowing how we’ll get to watch
More here:Yesterday, Apple ordered its first international series, Calls, adapted from a French series by the same name. It’s the latest addition to its growing pile of projects; currently the count sits at 21. The company is reportedly placing a big bet on original content, spending upwards of $1 billion this year to compete with the likes of HBO, Amazon, and Netflix. But with every day seeming like it’s bringing a new announcement of a new show coming to Apple, the question remains: where will we watch it?
Apple has already begun releasing its own projects: it released Planet of the Apps and Carpool Karaoke last year on Apple Music, but its big slate of original content is expected to begin rolling out as early as March 2019. To prepare for that, the company has greenlit or begun developing an impressive slate of projects: so far, Apple has signed a multiyear deal with Oprah Winfrey to develop new shows, ordered a pair of children’s shows from the creators of Sesame Street, a reboot of the science fiction anthology show Amazing Stories, a Hunger Games-style dystopian show called See, a series from La La Land director Damien Chazelle, a thriller series from M. Night Shyamalan, a space drama from Battlestar Galactica creator Ron Moore, a drama about a morning show starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, and an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s classic science fiction novel Foundation. There are also reports that it’s working to acquire the rights for an animated film.
