What else should I know about Apple TV Plus?
While Apple’s answer to Netflix has a comparatively tiny library of films and shows to get stuck into – just over 100 and counting – what’s available is top-notch, well-produced fare with little in the way of filler.
The Morning Show was the calling card for Apple TV Plus at launch, costing $15 million per episode. It was complemented by the epic sci-fi drama See starring Jason Momoa, space drama For All Mankind, and period comedy Dickinson.
Of course, the service’s breakout hit has been the Jason Sudeikis comedy Ted Lasso, following the eponymous American football coach hired to manage a Premier League football team. It’s earned an army of fans and an impressive amount of awards attention, netting 20 Primetime Emmy nominations in 2021 – a record for a freshman series.
The small but great library is set to grow at a steady pace and Apple TV Plus looks to have a pretty strong-looking upcoming schedule of new exclusive content.
On March 11 Samuel L. Jackson takes the lead in The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, playing the titular, dementia-addled protagonist given hope by his young caregiver that his memories might be recoverable. A month later and Elizabeth Moss will star as newspaper archivist Kirby in the thriller The Shining Girls, a woman whose journalistic ambitions are derailed after a traumatic assault. Based on the best-selling novel by Lauren Beukes, Shining Girls debuts on April 29.
And finally, due to be released “sometime in 2022” is Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon which promises a ‘large-scale Western’ featuring Hollywood big guns Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
