Former HBO CEO in talks to produce content for Apple TV+

Former HBO CEO and chairman Richard Plepler is talking with Apple about an exclusive Apple TV+ production deal, reports Deadline, quoting unnamed sources.

He left HBO at the end of February with plans to launch a company with financial backers. After talking to multiple suitors, he has settled on an exclusive production deal at Apple, which is being negotiated, reports Deadline.

Plepler is being brought into the fold by Apple TV+ heads Jamie Erlicht & Zack Van Amburg. Deadline adds that Plepler’s goal is to deliver as a producer the kind of high-quality series he championed as a top executive at HBO, including Game of Thrones.
