News round-up: Apple premieres ‘Servant’ TV series (and more)

Since Steve and I can’t cover everything, we’ll frequently offer a wrap-up of news items you should check out. 

Apple has debuted “Servant” t the global red carpet premiere for the new, ten-episode series at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York. It’s a psychological thriller directed by Academy Award nominated M. Night Shyamalan that follows a Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home. Beginning Nov. 28, the first three episodes of Servant will be available to watch exclusively on Apple TV+.

Speaking of Apple TV+, the upcoming film, The Banker, was set to have its world premiere at the AFI Fest in Hollywood on Thursday, but its debut has been postponed by Apple, reports Deadline. Apple is holding the show to investigate “recently uncovered and potentially damaging charges” surfaced by a family member of the late Bernard Garrett Sr, who the movie is based on.

Also, as noted by 9toMac, speaking at an APAC Summit, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said Apple’s stock “has room to run,” with the bank’s 12-month target for the stock at $296, some 11% up on Monday’s close.
