Why the Treasure Valley Should Be THRILLED About Apple’s TV+ Reveal
If you're someone who's cut the cord from traditional cable services and have no interest in getting yourself a satellite dish, chances are you have both a Netflix and Hulu account...and will probably sign-up for Apple TV+.
At yesterday's Apple Keynote presentation, the tech company unveiled a handful of new products that were NOT a new iPhone. Among them were Apple News+ which will give subscribers access to 300 magazines and newspapers, Apple's first credit card and Apple Arcade, a gaming subscription service. But the one that has the internet buzzing?
Apple TV+, Apple's streaming service that will produce four original feature films and almost two dozen series featuring some really big names like Oprah, Reese Withersppon, Steven Spielberg, Jason Momoa...
...and the Treasure Valley's own, Aaron Paul! Rumors have been floating around since last year that the Treasure Valley native is attached to the Apple TV+ series, Are You Sleeping? According to Variety, the series is based off a novel about how obsessed Americans have become with true-crime podcasts like "Serial" and how they've disrupted both the lives of victims and the accused.
Paul is reportedly playing Warren Cave, a convicted murder who's guilt or innocence is at the center of Poppy Parnell's podcast. Parnell, will be played by Octavia Spencer in a pretty star studded cast! Other stars include Mekhi Phifer of ER fame and Ron Cephas Jones who played Randall's biological dad on This Is Us. Reese Witherspoon will act as an executive producer alongside Spencer.
We don't know much about how much a subscription for the service will cost or exactly when it will launch. The only thing we know is that it's set to start rolling out content "this fall."
