‘Black Bird’ and ‘Duck & Goose’ now playing on Apple TV+

Apple TV+’s “Black Bird” prison drama ranks number eight in this week’s top 10 titles from Reelgood.

The limited series “Black Bird” and animated series “Duck & Goose” are now streaming on Apple TV+.

About ‘Black Bird’

The six-episode series premieres globally with the first two episodes today, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday through August 5, 2022. 

“Black Bird” stars Taron Egerton as Jimmy Keene, Paul Walter Hauser as Larry Hall, Greg Kinnear as Brian Miller, Sepideh Moafi as Lauren McCauley, and Ray Liotta as Jimmy Keene’s father, Big Jim Keene. The series is adapted from the true crime memoir “In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption” by James Keene and Hillel Levin.

Inspired by actual events, when high school football hero and decorated policeman’s son Jimmy Keene (Egerton) is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum security prison, he is given the choice of a lifetime — enter a maximum-security prison for the criminally insane and befriend suspected serial killer Larry Hall (Hauser), or stay where he is and serve his full sentence with no possibility of parole. 

Keene quickly realizes his only way out is to elicit a confession and find out where the bodies of several young girls are buried before Hall’s appeal goes through. But is this suspected killer telling the truth? Or is it just another tale from a serial liar? This dramatic and captivating story subverts the crime genre by enlisting the help of the very people put behind bars to solve its mysteries.

About ‘Duck & Goose’

Inspired by the New York Times bestselling books by Tad Hills, it’s a preschool series that celebrates the unique camaraderie of Duck and Goose.

They’re two best feathered friends that don’t always see beak to beak. That is until they discover that embracing and appreciating each other’s differences can help them think up entirely new ideas to help solve everyday challenges, both big and small.
