According to a report from Deadline, Apple is working on developing a show called Little America, created by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon who wrote the popular movie, The Big Sick.
The show will be focusing on “a small, collective portrait of America’s immigrants — and thereby a portrait of America itself.” The show will run for half an hour and will be developed as a straight-to-series project.
It’ll likely take cues from producer Alan Yang and Nanjiani’s personal family stories to develop the series, in conjunction with the show writer, Lee Eisenberg.
At this time, it is clear that Apple is working hard on original content, however, no official details from the company have emerged. Apple has reportedly ordered dramas with Octavia Spencer, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Anniston, as well as a pair of sci-fi series from Steven Knight and Steven Spielberg. Furthermore, an HGTV-like docuseries about luxury homes is also purportedly under development.
However, Eddy Cue is set to speak at SXSW this month and is likely to shed some more light on Apple’s TV plans.
