Written by Cheryl Guerriero, “Palmer” follows the story of former college football phenomenon Eddie Palmer (played by Timberlake) who, after a stint in prison, returns to his hometown to put his life on track. There, he faces not only conflicts from his past, but also a new challenge: he has to take care of a boy abandoned by his mother. In addition to Timberlake, “Palmer” will be starring Juno Temple, June Squibb, Alisha Wainright and Ryder Allen.

The film is produced by Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, Charlie Corwin, Daniel Nadler and Oscar winner Charles B. Wessler. Executive producers include Terry Dougas, Jean-Luc De Fanti, Mark O’Connor, Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis and Bruce Toll.

For now, there is no information on when “Palmer” will reach ‌Apple TV‌ +. Who is there already anxious?

“Echo 3”

Apple also gave the go-ahead for the production of a new series called “Echo 3”, based on Israeli production “When Heroes Fly” – whose creation was inspired by the eponymous novel by Amir Gutfreund.

The series will tell the story of Amber Chesborough, a young scientist missing on the border between Colombia and Venezuela at a time of tension between countries. Her brother and her husband, who have “deep military experience and a complicated past”, struggle to find her.

The adaptation will be made by the Oscar winner for Best Picture, Mark Boal (“War on Terror”), which will also act as showrunner next to Jason Horwitch (“House of Cards”). Apple is working with the Israeli company Keshet, which holds the rights to “When Heroes Fly”. The partnership between the two is not unprecedented, since they also came together to produce the English adaptation of the drama “False Flag”.

Apple also launched a new lyric video (those videos with lyrics) of the song “I Did Not Account For This”musical animation “Central Park”. Check out:
