added: Mon, Mar 25th '19

Later this year, Apple will be getting into the streaming-content business. And, so far, they have attracted an impressive roster of A-list names: Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, M. Night Shyamalan, Jason Momoa, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, Octavia Spencer, and Oprah! All of them are currently working on television projects that will be released exclusively on Apple's all-new subscription-based streaming service, called Apple TV +.

Check out the first footage from Apple's 2019 slate of original streaming series, which is set to debut later in the fall.

Below, are some of the Apple shows coming out soon, which are already turning into a pretty impressive line-up of original content.

"THE MORNING SHOW" stars Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, and Bel Powley. The series is set against the backdrop of a popular morning news program (think "The Today Show" or "Good Morning America"), in which Aniston and Carell play celebrated morning news anchors while Witherspoon plays a news producer.

"SEE" is written by acclaimed British screenwriter Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Peaky Blinders) and is directed by "Hunger Games" helmer Francis Lawrence. The series is set hundred years into the future, where the human race has not only lost the ability to see, but has also reverted back to primitive tribal culture. "Aquaman" star Jason Momoa plays a blind tribal leader searching for a new home. Alfre Woodard (Luke Cage), Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049), and Hera Hilmar (Mortal Engines) co-star.

"FOR ALL MANKIND" is co-created by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Outlander) and stars Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad, Hanna). The series is an alternate-history drama exploring a "what if" scenario: What if the global space race had never ended?

"HOME BEFORE DARK" stars "The Florida Project" breakout Brooklynn Prince as a young would-be sleuth who stumbles on a mystery involving her town and her father's past. The series is inspired by the real-life story of kid investigative journalist Hilde Lysiak.

"DICKINSON" explores the early years of 19th-century cnovelist Emily Dickinson, but told in a contemporary voice and feel. "Bumblebee" star Hailee Steinfeld plays the teenage Emily.

"LITTLE AMERICA" is an anthology series celebrating the remarkable true stories of American immigrants, created and executive produced by comedian Kumail Nanjiani and his wife and "The Big Sick" co-writing collaborator Emily Gordon, along with "Master of None" co-creator/producer Alan Yang.

"LITTLE VOICE" is a new musical drama series from executive producer J.J. Abrams and singer/Broadway star Sara Bareilles, loosely based on her own life story about starting out in the music business in New York City.

"TRUTH BE TOLD" is an adaptation of the bestselling crime novel "Are You Sleeping" about a true-crime podcaster who investigates cold cases. It stars and produced by Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer. Lizzy Caplan and Aaron Paul co-star.

"SERVANT" is a psychological thriller series executive produced by filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. Toby Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) star as a married couple who realize something is very wrong with their newborn child.

"AMAZING STORIES" is a reboot of Steven Spielberg's classic 1985 sci-fi-fantasy-mystery anthology series of the same name. It's much in the vein of "The Twilight Zone" and those old pulp magazines and comic books of the '40s and '50s.

Numerous other TV shows are currently being developed at Apple, as, starting today, the company makes its first strong step against rival streaming companies like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu. Let the battle begin!
