M. Night Shyamalan Is Directing an Original Series for Apple TV
Another psychological thriller.
After it emerged last year that Apple was set to spend $1 billion USD on original TV content, the tech giant has now reportedly recruited director M. Night Shyamalan to work on the platform. Exact details about the project are yet to be released, but the Sixth Sense director is rumored to have signed on to direct a 10-part series.
Similarly to previous Shyamalan releases, the new series is set to be a psychological thriller. The as-yet-untitled series will be written by Tony Basgallop, who also penned two films in the 24 franchise. Shyamalan is the latest high-profile figure to be enlisted for Apple’s original content platform, with Steven Spielberg set to helm the company’s Amazing Stories remake.
In related news, Netflix is set to release 700 original shows and movies this year.
