Original Apple TV Content Coming This Time Next Year?

A huge juggernaut seems to be entering the cord-cutting ring as Apple looks to increase its footprint in the entertainment industry. In fact, the tech giant has 12 projects currently in different stage of development. Nine of these projects are slated to be straight-to-series orders. The projected date of the first set of releases is March through summer of 2019.

 Apple is kicking off this new endeavor with a $1 billion investment in original content. This includes a show about a morning TV show that stars Hollywood icons Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who is hot off an Emmy win for her HBO show that landed her another high-paying gig for Hulu.
Other projects on the docket include:
  • A reboot of Amazing Stories with Steven Spieblberg
  • An original animated series created by the creator of Bob’s Burgers
  • A series from the director of La La Land, Damien Chazelle

Further proof of how serious Apple is taking this venture is their hiring process. The company has brought on former Sony Pictures bigwigs Jamie Erlicht and Zack Can Amburg.
