Apple TV Plus released a new trailer outlining its summer programming fare, giving first looks at a slew of upcoming projects both new and returning. The spot, titled “Summer 2021 & Beyond,” is a rapid fire blend of clips that push the narrative that Apple TV Plus is exploring new worlds.
The spot shows first looks at the Isaac Asimov adaptation “Foundation,” “Invasion,” the Will Ferrell-Paul Rudd vehicle “The Shrink Next Door,” musical comedy “Schmigadoon!” and Joseph Gordon-Levitt-starrer “Mr. Corman.” The spot also teased sophomore seasons of “The Morning Show,” “Ted Lasso,” “See” and “Truth Be Told,” as well as “CODA,” the Sundance favorite that Apple acquired for $25 million. Additionally, the trailer showcases family fare such as new series “Wolfboy and the Everything Factory” and “Puppy Place,” and new episodes of “Doug Unplugs.”
“CODA” writer-director Siân Heder shared with Variety her excitement about working with Apple after the sale.
“I have been so moved by the outpouring of response to the film and am so excited to have found a partner in Apple that loves and deeply gets this movie, the spirit in which it was created and is committed to having this film reach the widest audience possible in a thoughtful and meaningful way,” Heder said. “The whole ‘CODA’ team is also so grateful to Sundance for being a part of the film’s journey. I hope that this film and Apple’s powerful support will help kick down some doors standing in the way of inclusion and representation and pave a path for more stories that center characters from the Deaf and Disabled community. The world has waited too long for these stories to be told. Now is the time. No more excuses.”
