Apple Joins Forces With Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television

Apple Joins Forces With Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television

The tech giant struck a 10-episode deal to revive Spielberg's NBC anthology series, "Amazing Stories", NBCUniversal confirmed on Tuesday.

There's reportedly a budget of $5 million per episode.

Apple is on a mission to bankroll Hollywood-grade original video, and its first publicly-revealed purchase involves legendary director Steven Spielberg. Now according to The Wall Street Journal, they have found a partner in Steven Spielberg with an effort to reboot "Amazin Stories".

However, progress on a means of calculating the UK's financial obligations - the " Brexit Bill" - seems much less likely. Jensen called for compromise, saying "this will never be a 100 percent win for one side or the other side".

"We love being at the forefront of Apple's investment in scripted programming, and can't think of a better property than Spielberg's beloved "Amazing Stories" franchise", NBC president Jennifer Salke told the newspaper.

Amazing Stories aired from 1985 to 1987 and although it was canceled, it won five Emmys, including one for guest actor John Lithgow. As for Spielberg's role, sources say that he will likely serve as an executive producer, but nothing has been confirmed.

It's maybe an odd choice - a not-widely-remembered '80s TV show - but "odd" is also the way you might describe Apple's foray into original content to begin with. It's said that Apple has given the duo $1 billion to develop original programming over the next year.

Over the past two months, Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg, who left Sony Pictures Television in June to lead Apple's new programming unit, have been staffing up and scouting projects.

If Apple has great ambitions than promoting its music streaming service then we can probably expect future releases to be built into the TV app for iOS and tvOS.
