Apple TV+ Reaches Multi-Year Agreement With 'Veep' and 'Seinfeld' Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Apple today announced that it has signed a multi-year agreement with award-winning actress and producer Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who will develop new projects exclusively for Apple TV+ as both an executive producer and actress.


Louis-Dreyfus has broken records with multiple Emmys, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, and Critics Choice Awards for her work as an actress and producer, and is a recipient of the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. This marks her first-ever overall deal with a streaming service, according to Apple.

"I am thrilled about this new partnership with my friends at Apple," said Louis-Dreyfus. "Also, many thanks and kudos to my representatives for structuring the deal in such a way that I am paid in AirPods."

Louis-Dreyfus is best known for her long-running roles as Elaine Benes on the popular NBC sitcom "Seinfeld" and Selina Meyer on HBO's political satire comedy series "Veep." She has also appeared on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

Apple's streaming TV service launched in November for $4.99 per month.

Electronics and software are only as good as the content or value they deliver. You don't even care about electronics and software. You just don't realize it.

She's an actor, not an actress, you unwoke gammon :D


Actor refers to either male or female, and actress to female. It is acceptable to refer to a female artist as an actor or an actress. Crack open a dictionary every once in a while.

Another nice pull for Apple. They keep adding talent. Netflix should be very concerned right now, I think Apple has a chance to make something of Apple TV.
