Apple’s push for original content continues in stride, as Apple has just ordered a new docuseries.
As first reported today by Variety, Apple has officially ordered a new docuseries entitled Home straight to series. While details are relatively light, the series will apparently be focused on showing off the most extravagant homes the producers can find across the globe. This will be giving an in-depth look at each home, but, more than that, it will also look for important details from the architects and designers that brought the vision to life.
Apple has ordered 10 episodes, and each will measure in at one hour in length. The producers of the upcoming docuseries are Corey Reese and Matt Tynauer, both of which work out of Altimeter Films.
Apple has been working on its vision for original video content for quite some time, and has brought on a variety of different high-level individuals to help bring that vision to fruition. Over the last several months, the company has nailed down several different projects, including a brand new take on Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, as well as a TV drama series starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston. The company has also already brought Carpool Karaoke to market, and has its hands picking out other projects on a semi-regular basis.
Unfortunately, as it stands right now, there is no word on when Home will launch.
Apple has been getting a lot of high-profile deals, but this one, a docuseries that sounds a lot like MTV’s defunct Cribs, is a strange choice. Then again, these types of shows appear to do quite well for whatever network they are on, so maybe Apple’s goal here is to just offer as much varying content as it can and find out what sticks and what doesn’t.
I wonder how many HomePods we see in those expensive homes.
Will you watch this docuseries when it launches?[via Variety]
