Spielberg’s Amazing Stories and Apple’s First British Series Both Coming to Apple TV+

Spielberg's Amazing Stories

Apple’s first project with Steven Spielberg will be released on March 6th 2020

Following the launch of Apple’s streaming service on 1 November 2019, all eyes have been watching its original programming with keen interest. So far they have been attracting some of the biggest and best talent in TV and film production and seem to be positioning themselves as the premium for quality entertainment.

Quality over quantity is the key here with Apple taking it’s time and spending billions to make sure that they only release top notch content rather than TV re-runs or last years blockbuster movies. This latest offering from Spielberg is just another example of the extremely high standard that they are working to and there is a lot to look forward to in the pipeline…

Amazing Stories

This anthology (or collection of artistic works) is a resurrection of the original TV series, also produced by Spielberg, which is actually based on a science fiction literary magazine.  Amazing Stories is a set of separate, fantastical stories like the World War II pilot whose plane magically travels through space and time and into the present day. Speilberg is personally involved in the production of this new series which is being handled by his production company Amblin Entertainment.

Trying

For UK-based Apple fans, excitingly, we have something British to look forward to on Apple TV+ as well.  It is a comedy and revolves around the themes of love, relationships and growing up.

So this is all great I hear you cry but what can I watch right now if I subscribe to Apple TV+? The answer is…this lot….

The Morning Show

Starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who convincingly played sisters in Friends many moons ago, this nail-biting and gritty offering deals with the power struggles orbiting a TV news show. Current and exciting, it is top quality entertainment that leaves you wanting more. It also starsThe Office favourite, Steve Carrell playing a straight part which he does brilliantly.

See

See is a post-apolocalyptic drama about a world with no sight. This is a clearly a huge shame for the characters in the story as the series stars mega heart throb, Jason Mamoa! A sight for sore eyes for most but not for these poor cretins. See is apparently costing $15 million per episode which makes it one of the most expensive TV productions around.

Dickinson

A coming-of-age story about the life of Emily Dickinson set in the past but written to relate to a modern audience. Emily Dickinson was one of America’s greatest and most original poets of all time so it is a great one for girl power too.

For all Mankind

This series is all about an alternate reality where the Soviet Union beat the U.S of A to the moon! Great for all the space lovers out there as it kicks off with the space race in the 60’s.

Helpsters

Produced by the same people that make Sesame Street, this series is aimed at preschoolers and introduces toddlers to coding and critical thinking.

Snoopy in Space

This is limited series of 10 animated shorts featuring the much loved Snoopie becoming a NASA astronaut.

Ghostwriter

A reboot of the 90’s Ghostwriter TV show following four kids brought together by a mysterious bookstore ghost.

Oprah’s Book Club

The Book Club was part of her daytime TV show and now she is bringing it to Apple TV+ as it’s own exclusive series.

The Elephant Queen

This film follows Athena, the elephant matriarch. on her journey to find food and water for her family after the watering hole dries up. A tearjerker for sure but beautiful and inspirational too.

Servant

This story follows a couple in mourning from an unspeakable tragedy that causes a rift in their marriage and opens the door to a mysterious force.

Truth Be Told, Little America, Hala are also available to watch exclusively on Apple TV+ right now so you have plenty to be getting on with. Enjoy!
