Apple apparently won a bid for the show over the weekend, which is based on an original idea from "BoJack Horseman" creator and author Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The project is untitled as of yet.

Andy Samberg will produce and star in the series, while Stiller and Bob-Waksberg will serve as producers on the show. Andy Siara will write the script and will also serve as an executive producer. The show received interest thanks to "Palm Springs," a 2020 Hulu movie starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milloti.

In other Apple TV+ news, Geoffrey Arend has joined the cast of "Physical," an upcoming comedy drama starring Rose Byrne. "Physical" is set in a 1980s Southern California beach community and will follow a woman struggling in her role as a tortured housewife who finds a path to power through the world of aerobics.

Apple is allegedly making a series of the book “Foundation”. I’ve been looking forward to that. Right now there is nothing I want to watch on Apple TV+ so far...

I found nothing yet on TV+ I would want to watch except A Charlie Brown Christmas, the channel is just not for me. I hope this series will change that because I love SF.

Apple just doesn't get it, imagine an all-ages music service. Just stupid.
Have you watched See? There's some proper violence in that. This idea that Apple TV content is expressly "all ages" seems pretty nonsense to me judging by what I've watched on there.

I will absolutely be watching this series. Andy is brilliant in Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Stiller is great in everything he does. Can’t wait!
