Alfonso Cuarón is moving to the small screen.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-winning director has signed a multi-year deal with Apple to develop content exclusively for Apple TV+. Details of Cuarón’s deal have yet to be made public but one can assume it’s pretty lucrative considering his resume.
The deal apparently won’t conflict with the director’s current, non-exclusive deal with Anonymous Content. In fact, he’ll reportedly partner with the banner on certain projects under his new deal at Apple. His London-based production banner, Esperanto Filmoj will also remain operational with his longtime producing partner Gabriela Rodriguez overseeing day-to-day operations.
The pick-up further proves how serious Apple is about the coming ‘streaming wars.’ On top of Cuarón’s future projects, Apple TV+ will drop next month with a couple of original series starring Steve Carrell, Jason Momoa, Jennifer Aniston, Hailee Steinfeld, and Reese Witherspoon. There’s also an extremely intriguing, and terrifying, thriller from M. Night Shyamalan landing later next month on November 28th.
Apple TV+ launches worldwide on November 1st.
