Apple TV+ Content 'Home,' 'Central Park,' and 'Beastie Boys' to Premiere at SXSW Film Festival

Apple today announced that several upcoming Apple TV+ projects are going to debut at the SXSW Film Festival, set to take place from March 13 to March 21.

Newly acquired documentary "Beastie Boys Story" will be shown at the festival ahead of its ‌Apple TV‌+ release on April 24, and Apple will also premiere upcoming TV shows "Central Park" and "Home."


Created by Loren Bouchard and Nora Smith, both known for popular TV series "Bob's Burgers," "Central Park" is an animated musical series that tells the story of a family of caretakers who live and work in Central Park and end up saving the world.

The animated show features voice work from Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Tituss Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs, and Kathryn Hahn.

"Home," made by the creators of Netflix series "Chef's Table," is a docuseries that's designed to provide viewers with a never-before-seen look inside the "world's most innovative homes."

The episode debuting at SXSW will focus on the home of lawyer and science fiction writer Christopher Brown, with the house being described as a "modern interpretation of Native American pit houses," which are huts that were traditionally constructed with mud and grass.

There's no word on when these two shows are going to debut on ‌Apple TV‌+, but a launch could come not too long after their SXSW debut.

I watched all of the shows I wanted to watch in the first couple of months. I haven’t watched anything at all since before Christmas. I’m excited for Foundation, Amazing Stories, JJ Abrams‘ shows and the second seasons of For All Mankind and See but it was a good call to make AppleTV+ effectively free for the first year. Apple needs time to build up a catalogue and a steady stream of productions.

You’re missing out on Servant then. That show is phenomenal. Plus no jump scares, which are a total turnoff for a scaredy cat like myself.

At the moment I watched most of Apple+ except Dickenson, Hala and the children shows. So I’m waiting for new content. Loved the tv shows so far.

I started going a little crazy and decided to try out Helpsters and Ghostwriter. I found some humor in both shows, which could appeal to parents watching with their kids. Nice attention to detail there.

Definitely check out Dickinson though - it's incredible. Just need to get past some of the modern touches without too much eye rolling and it gets very good.

Slightly worried about there content going into this year.
They had a good start and I enjoyed See & Dickinson. LOVED The Morning Show & Servant.

it seems most of the content coming isn’t high quality, well written drama which I think is there niche.
I don’t need a pop culture documentary OR a grand designs show, you can get that stuff free on YouTube.

We will have to see where the content is after it’s first year, so far, so good.

I’m not into horror but maybe I’ll give it a shot. Disney+ has been keeping me busy where AppleTV+ left off.

Looking forward to Central Park and the Beastie Boys documentary.

As more content is released, hitting a wider variety of interests, Apple TV+ starts to be increasingly attractive to more and more customers. It’s going to take awhile, but two, three, four years from now it’ll be much more fleshed out.

Apple playing the long game as usual.
