Planet of the Apps is an American reality television show broadcast on Apple Music. It is the first original television show produced by Apple. After 1 season, Apple decided not to renew the show.[1]

Episode style[edit]

On each of the episode, software makers have 60 seconds to pitch their idea in front of the judges (Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Gary Vaynerchuk) on a slow-moving escalator—for a visual idea of an "elevator pitch". Apple says new episodes will be released on Tuesdays, with the first season set to be 10 episodes long.[2] The series is hosted by Zane Lowe and produced by Ben Silverman.[3] The series premiered on June 6, 2017.[4][5]
