Apple TV+ has a lot of shows and movies in development, with new announcements coming quite regularly.
Here’s all the news from the last week:
Production has begun on Ted Lasso’s 12 part second season, according to a tweet from the Apple TV twitter account.
Apple’s Fraggle Rock reboot has also started filming in Canada. The series is being run by Matt Fusfeld and Alex Cuthbertson formerly of ‘Community’.
Tehran has been renewed for a second season and will air in parallel with Israeli network Kan 11. This time around Apple will co-produce the show unlike the first season which was purchased after being produced.
Apple TV+ has picked up a series starring Brie Larson called ‘Lessons in Chemistry’, based on the upcoming book of the same name. It will be written by Erin Brockovich writer Susannah Grant and produced by Larson as well as Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan under their Aggregate Films production company. They also produced Ozark for Netflix and The Outsider for HBO. It is produced at Apple’s newly established Apple Studios.
Apple Studios are also reuniting with Little America’s Lee Eisenberg as well as Drew Crevello who have created a limited series ‘WeCrashed’ based on the rise and fall of WeWork which featured in a podcast series by Wondery. Anne Hathaway and Jared Leto will star as WeWork founders Rebekah & Adam Neumann.
Taron Edgerton is to star in a limited series from Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone author Dennis Lehane. It is based on the 2010 novel ‘In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption’ by James Keene and Hillel Levin.
Apple has bought the rights to the Sundance hit ‘CODA’ for $25m, breaking the previous record set last year by Palm Spring (which was $22,500,000.69 wink!). The film centres on a young girl who is the only hearing person in her family and might have to choose between them and her own dreams.
