Writer/director Alfonso Cuarón strikes deal with Apple

Alfonso Cuarón — writer and director of such films as Roma and Gravity — has signed an overall deal with Apple. Under the terms of the multiple-year pact, he’ll create and develop new television projects exclusively for the upcoming Apple TV+ streaming service, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cuarón will also maintain his non-exclusive deal with Anonymous Content and will partner with them on select projects while also continuing to produce other projects with different collaborators.

Cuarón’s long-time producing partner Gabriela Rodriguez will oversee day-to-day operations at Cuarón’s London-based company, Esperanto Filmoj.

The deal could be considered a big win for Apple — especially after Cuarón delivered a hit for Netflix in the form of feature Roma, which was nominated for multiple Academy Awards. 

Apple TV+ will debut on Nov. 1 at $4.99 per month. However, if you buy a new Mac, iPad, iPhone, or Apple TV, you can get a year’s subscription free.
