Apple is investing into a ton of original content for its Apple TV+ service. One of the shows that the company is investing in is a show called “See”, but what’s interesting about the show is how much Apple is willing to pay per episode. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Apple is said to be spending as much as $15 million per episode.
That’s a massive budget when you consider that the end result will be a budget that rivals some Hollywood movie productions. It also goes to show how much Apple is willing to pay to get their hands on high-quality original content. Given that Apple doesn’t really have a track record for creating original video content, it is quite a lot to invest right out of the gate.
For those who are unfamiliar, See is a show based on a post-apocalyptic world where Earth was devastated by a virus, leaving behind a few million people. However, all the survivors are now blind. The series will star Aquaman and Game of Thrones actor, Jason Momoa. Based on the glimpses we’ve seen of the show, it does look pretty epic, but whether or not it will be good remains to be seen.
There is no word on when Apple TV+ will be launched, although the company did give a vague timeline which was for the fall of 2019.
