So we know that Apple has been trying to land some big names for their original video content, and in a report from Variety, it looks like Apple has managed to nab another big name in the form of director M. Night Shyamalan who will be executive producing a psychological thriller series for the company.
The series will be written by Tony Basgallop and for now, the details are being kept under wraps. However what we do know is that each episode is expected to last half an hour and 10 episodes have been ordered to start, with Shyamalan set to direct the first episode. For those unfamiliar, Shyamalan is behind some hit movies such as The Sixth Sense and Signs which were popular, although some of his other works did not pan out as well.
He also has some experience in television as he had previously produced Wayward Pines for Fox. At the moment it seems that Apple is building up a portfolio of shows and movies, but what many are curious about is where Apple plans on launching them on. Many have speculated that it could be tied in with Apple TV, but that means that it could alienate users who do not own the device.
Some are suggesting it could be a separate app, but Apple is keeping mum on their plans, although Apple’s Eddy Cue did state that they will reveal their plans in a little bit of time.
