The New York Times has published a list of shows the publication says Apple has nearly ready for the debut of its upcoming streaming television service. The publication claims the Cupertino firm has five shows that have finished filming, and around six more that are in mid-production.
The report says that “Are You Sleeping” starring Octavia Spencer, space drama “For All Mankind”, a thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, a comedy from the stars of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and a comedy called “Dickinson” based on the poet of the same name (Emily Dickinson), have all wrapped.
While the series may be finished filming, there is still plenty of post-production that needs to be done. Editing, CGI effects, and the like can take months to finish, which is likely contributing to reports that Apple’s streaming service won’t actually begin streaming content until later this year.
The report says the morning drama series starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell, has almost completed filming for the first season. The series has already been cleared to film a second season. The science-fiction series “See,” starring Aquaman’s Jason Momoa, is currently in front of the cameras.
There are plenty of other projects either being filmed or otherwise in production, many of which will debut in 2020. Apple is also reportedly buying rights to several movies for streaming on the service.
Apple is expected to announce the streaming TV service at a March 25 media event.
