Apple has placed an order for a series from the Academy Award-nominated screenwriters (Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani) behind “The Big Sick” and producer/writer Lee Eisenberg, reports TheWrap.
Titled “Little America,” the series “will go beyond the headlines to look at the funny, romantic, heartfelt, inspiring and surprising stories of immigrants in America, when they’re more relevant now than ever,” the article says. It will be produced by Universal Television for Apple.
This will be Apple’s 17th scripted series. Upcoming original programming titles include “Amazing Stores,” “Are You Sleeping,” “Home,” “Little America,” “See,” “Swagger,” an untitled Damien Chazelle drama, an untitled Reese Witherspoon/Jennifer Anniston dreamed, “Dickinson” (a half-hour comedy starring Hailee Stenifeld), an untitled Ronald D. Moore drama, an untitled M. Night Shyamalan thriller series, a TV series adaption of “Foundation,” the Isaac Asimov science fiction novel trilogy, and the half-hour dramedy “Little Voices” from producers J.J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles, and a drama series about pre-teen investigative reporter Hilde Lysiak.
