Apple signs ‘Little America’ exec producer to long-term contract

Lee Eisenberg, executive producer of the Little America series on Apple TV+, has signed a long-term contract with Apple and will launch a new production team for creating content exclusively for Apple’s streaming service, according to Variety.

He’s the co-creator, executive producer, and co-showrunner on Apple’s Little America, which debuts on Jan. 17 and has already been picked up for a second season.

Under the terms of the deal, Eisenberg will launch a new banner, Piece of Work Entertainment, and create television and digital media projects exclusively for Apple TV+. Variety adds that he’s brought on Natalie Sandy as vice president of development for the company. 

Little America, which is getting good advance reviews, will, per Apple, “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.”
