Apple Orders 'Home' Docuseries Featuring Extraordinary Houses

Apple has inked a deal for yet another television show, this time a docuseries called "Home," reports Variety.

The series will offer a "never-before-seen look inside the world's most extraordinary homes" while also delving into the imaginations of the visionaries who dreamed them up and built them. Based on the show's description, it sounds a little bit like MTV's "Cribs" but with more of a design and architecture focus.

Apple has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of the "Home" docuseries, which is produced by Matt Tynauer and Corey Reese of Altimeter Films.

"Home" is the first documentary-style series that Apple has ordered thus far under the leadership of Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg, two former Sony executives Apple brought on last June to run a new video content division within the company.

Apple is working on several other shows in addition to "Home," including a revival of 1985 Steven Spielberg sci-fi series "Amazing Stories," an untitled space drama developed by Ronald D. Moore, known for "Battlestar Galactica," an untitled "morning show drama" starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, and "Are You Sleeping," a psychological thriller starring Octavia Spencer that focuses on a podcast that reopens a murder case.

It's not yet clear when the first of Apple's original TV shows will premiere, but it's possible at least one series will debut later in 2018.

I would rather watch an actual gorilla channel than another show about rich people’s houses.

The series will offer a "never-before-seen look inside the world's most extraordinary homes."

So in other words, the homes of Apple executives?

Since I'm a bit of a masochist, could they also show all the hot women I won't be sleeping with?

The reason for Amazon, Netflix and Hulu's success is their channels are available on every platform. No matter what box you buy or smartTV, you can stream content from all of those places so long as you pay for it.

AppleMusic streaming is not available on Roku, Shield, Google Cast or Amazon Fire, right? Isn't that holding them back?

A corporation with enough cash reserves to finance the global cancer research - or finance the colonization of Mars - has absolutely no imagination to put its money to proper use. What happened to "here's to the crazy ones"?

I love Apple products and Apple Music, but so far, none of their exclusives or TV shows sound interesting in the least to me. I like a pretty wide range of content, but their music exclusives seem focused on hip-hop and pop (which I also enjoy... but none of what they’ve put out). There’s a million shows about nice houses out there. Remote homes, urban homes, tiny homes, motor homes, architecturally unique homes...
