“Home” docuseries is Apple’s latest TV show
Furthering their push into original TV programming, Apple has added the docuseries Home to their growing list of shows. Home joins Are You Sleeping starring Octavia Spencer, a TV morning show drama starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s ’80s anthology Amazing Stories, and a new a sci-fi drama from Ronald D. Moore.
Honestly, they’re picking up so many shows that’s we’re soon to forget all about Carpool Karaoke over there on Apple Music.
Variety, which broke the story yesterday, reported:
The series will offer viewers a never-before-seen look inside the world’s most extraordinary homes, and delves into the minds of the people who built them. Apple has ordered 10, one-hour episodes of the new series.
These must be some pretty great homes to warrant spending a whole hour in them, unless of them’s the Winchester Mystery House. Honestly, I’d rather have a show called Spaceship so we could spend an hour inside of Apple’s headquarters.
I personally feel that each new show cools speculation that Apple could buy Netflix, as suggested by Citi analysts Jim Suva and Asiya Merchant. Although it certainly would be possible for Apple to just merge their programming into Netflix’s after the acquisition, we have to wonder why they’d bother investing so much into their own original content if they’re close to picking up everything Netflix currently has to offer (and the built-in subscriber base that entails).
Either way, it’ll be interesting to see where Apple goes with this, and what additional shows they announce throughout 2018. Since Bryan Fuller is attached to the Amazing Stories reboot, is it too much to ask for a season two of Wonderfalls, Apple?
