List of original programs distributed by Apple TV+

Beginning in 2016, Apple began to produce and distribute its own original content. The first television program produced by Apple was Planet of the Apps, a reality competition series. Their second, released in the fall of 2017, was Carpool Karaoke: The Series based on the popular recurring segment from The Late Late Show with James Corden.[1]

In June 2017, Apple appointed Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg to head their newly formed worldwide video unit. By November, Apple confirmed that it was branching out into original scripted programming when announcing straight-to-series orders for two television programs: a drama series starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, and a reboot of the anthology series Amazing Stories by Steven Spielberg.[2]

Apple is reportedly planning on spending around $1 billion on original programming in the following years.[3] More recently, it has been projected that they will spend about $4.2 billion on original programming by 2022.[4] In August 2019, it was reported that Apple had already spent over $6 billion on original programming.[5]

On March 25, 2019, Apple announced their streaming service as Apple TV+, along with the announcement of Apple's slate of original programming.[6] The service launched on November 1, 2019, in over 100 countries through the Apple TV app.

On March 13, 2020, Apple suspended all active filming on Apple TV+ shows due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and all production on series have been postponed indefinitely.[7]
