Apple TV Original 'Dickinson' has been named amongst those honored in this years Peabody Awards winners. The nod marks the first Peabody win for Apple TV+ , following the streaming services launch last November.

Peabody describe the show in their round-up of this years winner:‌

"Creator Alena Smith lovingly and playfully embraces anachronism, bringing a contemporary sense, sensibility, and soundtrack to 19th-century New England and the world of poet Emily Dickinson. Hailee Steinfeld offers a standout performance in a show that excels at being fun while crackling with energy and wild originality."

It was reported last month that showrunner and executive producer Alena Smith had signed a multi-year deal to develop TV shows exclusively for Apple.

Season one of ‘Dickinson’ is currently available to stream on Apple TV+ with its second season expected to debut this Fall.
