This news comes after Apple announced the launch of Apple’s new video streaming application. Beginning in 2016, Apple began to produce and distribute its original content. The first program created by Apple was Planet of the Apps, a reality competition series. The second series was Carpool Karaoke: The Series, which was based on the famous segment from The Late Late Show with James Corden.
By November 2017, Apple confirmed that it was branching out into original scripted shows including Amazing Stories, a Georgia-filmed production based on Steven Spielberg’s previous presentation of the same name, and a new drama series starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
Apple is reportedly planning on spending around $1 billion on original programming in the next few years. More recently, it has been projected Apple will pay about $4.2 billion on original programming by 2022. Apple’s upcoming programming will reportedly debut between March and the summer of 2019.
