Damien Chazelle to Write, Direct Straight-to-Series Drama for Apple

For Apple, the untitled Damien Chazelle drama joins a roster of scripted originals that also includes the morning-show drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon; Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories anthology; a Ron Moore space drama; Steven Knight’s See; and a comedy starring Kristen Wiig. The tech giant is expected to spend $1 billion on scripted originals. What still remains to be seen is just how Apple will unspool its pricey originals. – Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter http://ift.tt/2DD1lpb
