23 Upcoming Apple TV Plus Shows To Be Excited About
Apple are making a play for Netflix's crown.
Between the likes of Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, there's already a wealth of TV out there for people to never have the time to watch, and that's before even factoring in cable channels and broadcast networks.
It's a crowded marketplace and arguably too much, but that's never stopped a company like Apple before. Not content with dominating the tech market, the California giants are now planning a move into TV production.
This won't just be any old half-baked effort either, but a series attempt to compete with all the big players. And to show just how serious they are about that, Apple have made a $1bn commitment to making their own original series, which will start rolling out in 2019 (with the recent Apple event showcasing a fair few of them). They've already attracted some key talent, won rights to hot properties, and pretty soon there's going to be a lot more TV to watch on your iPhone.
23. For All Mankind
Ronald D. Moore (creator, lead writer), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi (producers)
A new sci-fi series from the creator of Battlestar Galactica, this untitled sci-fi series will take place in an alternate reality where the space race between the United States and Russia never actually ended. So a bit like Man in the High Castle, but with more astronauts. The cast includes Joel Kinnaman and Shantel VanSanten as a "prominent NASA couple" and Wrenn Schmidt as a NASA engineer.
