Apple’s Still-Secretive TV Plans: Here’s What We Know So Far, Including a List of Shows

  • Indiewire
It’s the biggest question in Hollywood that everyone is asking, and no one has an answer yet: What will Apple’s upcoming video offering actually look like, and how will it be delivered to viewers?

“I don’t know, and nobody knows, and it makes me nervous,” said one top Hollywood agent. “I’d sell one-off deals with Apple all day long. But I’d never do a [major, long-term talent deal] with them because I don’t know what it means to be an Apple show. How do they market it? Where’s it going to show up? How are people going to see it? It makes no sense to me.”

All is expected to be revealed later this fall, as Apple gears up to enter an already saturated marketplace in early 2019. The competition is fierce: Netflix has 125 million customers globally, while Amazon just revealed that Prime has 100 million consumers. Hulu is also in the mix,

Nicole Kidman Was Just Named One of the World's Most Influential People

Honestly, is there anything Nicole Kidman can't do? She's (deservedly) won accolade after accolade for her portrayal of Celeste Wright, as well as her role in producing HBO's mini-series Big Little Lies, and now she's winning global praise for her support of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements by Time magazine. Releasing their annual top 100 list of their most influential people, Nicole joined the likes of Cardi B, Gal Gadot, and Hugh Jackman on the esteemed list. This comes as no surprise to us — we've known all about Nicole's starpower for decades. But ever-so-humble Nic doesn't claim all the credit for her success — specifically the success of Big Little Lies. Nicole as Celeste in Big Little Lies.

Calling all Gladiators! Kerry Washington's power-wielding, white-hat-wearing superwoman alter ego, Olivia Pope, sadly won't be gracing our TV screens anymore.
