Another week means what? One more batch of news from Apple TV +, clear!
“Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet”
We already talked about “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet”, the comedy series created by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day (in “It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia”). Now Apple has announced its debut date: February 7th, when the first season consisting of 9 30-minute episodes each will be available at once on Apple TV +.
As already described, the production accompanies a team from a video game studio responsible for the creation and maintenance of a popular title. The series star McElhenney himself as the creative director of the studio, and count on F. Murray Abraham (Oscar winner for “Amadeus”), Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao, David Hornsby, Ashly burch and Jessie Ennis.
Apple also released the first trailer for “Little America” the anti-immigrant series created by Lee Eisenberg (“The Office”), Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani (both from "Sick of Love"). Check it out:
The series, as already reported, reach the Apple TV + on day 17 next.
Finally, the deadline reported that Apple has signed a preference agreement with Sharon horgan, actress and screenwriter behind series like “Catastrophe” and Divorce. As a result, all future Horgan projects will have Apple TV + as their preferred destination – they may only be appropriated by other companies if Ma has no interest in them.
Previously, Horgan had that same contract with Amazon, but it was recently closed. Negotiations with the actress / screenwriter were led by Apple's British television division, with Ma's global video director, Jay Huntsupervising the contract.
Horgan is currently working on two projects conceived before the contract with Apple: “Shining Vale” (a series of comedy and horror) and Delilah (a production for HBO Max).
