There are a lot of different TV shows on Apple TV+. We have workplace dramas. We've got post-apocalyptic tales. And of course plenty of films ranging in scope and themes. But what Apple TV+ has been missing is Kaiju, or giant monsters. But that's finally changing.
The Sky Is Everywhere was first picked up as a film adaptation by Apple TV+ and A24 way back in 2019. Over the course of 2020, we saw the cast fill out. But it wouldn't be until January of 2022 that we finally got a first look at the upcoming film adaptation of the popular young adult novel.
Apple TV+ has a lot of different projects in the works at any given time. And it turns out it has yet another series in the works based on a popular novel. And it has just found one of its lead actors.
Apple TV+ has been working towards bringing back the Fraggle Rock puppets for quite some time. And the wait is almost over, with the revival series about ready to make its debut on the streaming platform. Which means it's about time for a first look at the upcoming show.
Getting to a point where Apple TV+ subscribers actually get to watch WeCrashed has been a long time in the works. In February of 2020, it was initially reported that Apple was working to develop a series based on the "rise and fall of WeWork," the company that was supposed to change the face of working. And then in December of the same year, we heard that Jared Leto (Morbius) would be starring in the limited series.
The 53rd Annual NAACP Image Awards is right around the corner, which means nominations for awards are going out. And, unsurprisingly, thanks to TV series and films alike, Apple TV+ has earned more than a few nods. Nine, to be exact.
There was a stretch of time there, over the last year or so, where it felt like Apple was signing exclusive multi-year deals with so many different people on a regular basis. That simmered down a bit, especially recently. But the company isn't quite done with that particular plan of attack for securing films, series, and documentaries for Apple TV+.
Severance has been a long time coming for Apple TV+. The workplace thriller was first announced way back in November of 2019, with the news that Adam Scott (Big Little Lies) attached to star. It didn't take long before we learned that Patricia Arquette (The Act) would be taking up a lead role in the project as well. It wouldn't be until a little over two years later that we finally saw the first teaser trailer, though.
In May of 2021, it was announced that A24 and Apple TV+ had sealed the deal to bring The Tragedy of Macbeth to the streaming service at some point in the future. It stars Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, and it's finally streaming on Apple TV+. Which means it's about time we get to see a behind the scenes look at how it all came together.
While Netflix has kept things pretty straightforward with its on-demand philosophy, other streaming services have branched out quite a bit. Offering up a variety of different combinations of on-demand and live streaming. For its part, Apple TV+ has kept things strictly on-demand, but that could be changing in the near future.
If you have been a fan of the documentary options offered by Apple TV+ so far, there is a new one you might want to keep on your radar coming soon. Announced today, it has a pretty quick turnaround time to actually premiering on the streaming service, too.
Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) is not a stranger to having work released on Apple TV+. The Banker came out some time ago, after all. But now he has a new project, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, coming soon to the streaming service. And now we finally know when it's premiering.
