Apple is making a splash at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, premiering three Apple TV+ originals.
Today, Apple has officially announced that it will be premiering three new originals at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, which starts on Friday, March 13, and will run until Sunday, March 22, 2020. The projects include a live documentary from filmmaker Spike Jonze, which was just picked up by Apple and looks over the life of rap trio the Beastie Boys in Beastie Boys Story. It also includes a new series and a new documentary series as well.
The other two originals are:
From the creative minds behind “Chef’s Table” and “The Defiant Ones,” “Home” is an inventive, new docuseries that offers viewers a never-before-seen look inside the world’s most innovative homes, and unveils the boundary-pushing imagination of the visionaries who dared to dream and build them. “Home” is executive produced by Joe Poulin, Matt Weaver, Bruce Gersh, Ian Orefice, Doug Pray, Collin Orcutt, Matt Tyrnauer, Corey Reeser and Kim Rozenfeld. Nick Stern serves as co-executive producer, and the series hails from MediaWeaver, Four M Studios and Altimeter Films.
From Emmy Award winner Loren Bouchard (“Bob’s Burgers”), executive producer Nora Smith (“Bob’s Burgers”) and Josh Gad (“Frozen”), “Central Park” is an animated musical series that tells the story of how a family of caretakers, who live and work in Central Park, end up saving the park, and basically the world. Cast: Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Tituss Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs and Kathryn Hahn.
Unfortunately there is no additional information as to an Apple TV+ launch for Central Park or Home. So we don’t know when the two other originals will arrive on Apple’s streaming service. However, we do know that Beastie Boys Story will debut on Apple TV+ on April 24.
As soon as trailers show up for any of these originals, we’ll be sure to share them.
