Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Morning Show) is not a stranger to working with Apple TV+. She had a co-starring role in one of the streaming service's debut series, and now she's leading the charge on another series.
It has been over a year since we first heard about the limited dark comedy series The Shrink Next Door. Things were relatively quiet on the project since, but that changed this week. We finally have some footage to watch.
With so many Apple TV+ premieres happening throughout 2021, the streaming service is releasing first-looks on a semi-regular basis. As such, we've been seeing a lot of new teaser and official trailers. Today, we get yet another for a returning series.
See, a gritty post-apocalyptic tale about survival and discovery, is one of the most ambitious shows available on Apple TV+. Like many of the streaming service's debut series, though, it had a rocky start. By the end of the first season, though, it had found its footing and become must-watch TV.
There was a long period of time there where Apple was doing just about everything it could to nail down first-look deals. That included producers, directors, and actors. It's been quiet on that front for a bit of time now, but today might buck that trend.
Simon Kinberg and David Weil have been working on an epic sci-fi drama with action elements for a long time now. At the beginning of 2020, we heard the project was eventually coming to Apple TV+. Then, later in the year, we finally got word on who would be starring in the series.
It's been relatively quiet on the premiere front for Apple TV+ through the beginning of 2021. However, that is going to change throughout the rest of the year. And in an effort to get people excited, Apple's released a sizzle reel showing off the busy rest of the year.
Despite the fact that many of Apple's first series for Apple TV+ have picked up seasons beyond their first, nothing is a given. Even for a fledgling service looking for content. So a renewal is a big deal, especially when it comes to a critically-acclaimed show.
With the upcoming June 18 premiere date for one of Apple TV+'s newest comedy series rapidly approaching, the streaming service has provided the official trailer for Physical.
Apple TV+ has been teasing the upcoming dramedy for a while now. We got a first-look of the lead star, Rose Byrne (Instant Family) a while back. And back in April we saw the first teaser trailer. But this latest look offers just over two minutes of footage, giving us a better feel of the comedy, and overall story, coming soon to Apple's streaming service.
Many fans of Stephen King will know that he loves his tale Lisey's Story. It's one of the most personal stories he's ever written, and now he's adapting it for the small screen.
Ahead of its June 4 premiere on Apple TV+, Stephen King sat down in front of the camera to talk about the story. He talks, albeit briefly as the video is less than three minutes in length, about how the story is important to him as a person and a writer, and how events in his own life helped shape that story. We also get to hear from producer J.J. Abrams (Super 8), director Pablo Larraín (Ema), and Clive Owen (Children of Men).
Elisabeth Moss (The Invisible Man) was first attached to star in the upcoming thriller Shining Girls back in July of last year. And now she'll have one more role on the project.
Apple TV+ has secured itself yet another major series, and this one's already got its leading star, too.
