Apple Plans to Share Upcoming Original Series Free to Apple Device Owners

Apple is preparing a new digital video service that will marry original content and subscription services from legacy media companies, according to people familiar with the matter. Owners of Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad and Apple TV will find the still-in-the-works service in the pre-installed "TV" application, said the people, who asked not to be named because the details of the project are private.

The product will include Apple-owned content, which will be free to Apple device owners, and subscription "channels," which will allow customers to sign up for online-only services, such as those from HBO and Starz.

Apple is spending about $1 billion on original content this year, targeting "PG-rated" shows that appeal to wide audiences and won't get the company in trouble by making them available for free to owners of all devices, said the people. Apple is also looking for "tent pole" franchises that could serve as linchpins to a paid Netflix-like subscription service down the road, two of the people said. Think "Game of Thrones," but without the sex and violence. The Wall Street Journal reported last month Apple has about 24 original shows in production and development.




FBI - Showrunner Greg Plageman Exits; Chicago PD & Fire Duo Rick Eid and Derek Haas Tapped as 3rd New Showrunners

Plageman was brought in to right the ship following Turk's departure in late July. Turk, who wrote the pilot, stepped down after creative differences on the procedural, which also underwent some recasting after the pilot. Person of Interest's Plageman returned to CBS to get the Universal Television-produced series back on track and has now departed so he may focus on his own development for the studio. Eid and Haas will serve as co-showrunners on FBI in addition to running NBC's Wolf-produced Chicago PD and Chicago Fire, respectively.
