New Shows For Apple TV+ Will Have Ties To Philadelphia
With the recent announcement of Apple's latest product, Apple TV+, a new streaming service that will compete with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video, came the big reveal of some of the new content that will be available on this new service coming this fall. There will be new shows from big names from the Philadelphia area that are working on some projects for the new Apple platform.
Philly Voice pointed out that natives from the City of Brotherly Love will be creating new shows for Apple. M. Night Shyamalan (the creative mind behind movies likes Glass, Signs, Split, and The Sixth Sense), will be working on a new series that stars Rupert Grint, who played “Ron Weasley” from the Harry Potter film series. Not much is known yet about this project, but according to Inverse.com, it will be a “psychological thriller” that revolves around a professional chef and his family. It's expected to be a ten episode season/series and each episode will last about 30 minutes.
Philly native, Rob McElhenney, and fellow It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creator, Charlie Day are working on something together as well. This show will also consist of half-hour episodes and that center on a group of co-workers from a video-game development studio.
