When the show premieres on October 29, the first three episodes will be available, with new episodes to follow each Friday.

In other Apple TV+ news, John Lithgow has been cast in ‌Apple TV+‌ thriller "Sharper," and he will star alongside Julianne Moore. "Sharper" follows the story of a woman who cons her way through the world of Manhattan's wealthy elite.

Apple has also inked a deal for popular children's television show "Yo Gabba Gabba." Apple is creating a new 20-episode "Yo Gabba Gabba" series and has also acquired the rights to all prior "Yo Gabba Gabba" TV shows and specials.

"Off the court, the show reveals what it's like to grow up in America."

How can a show reveal what it's like to grow up in America to an audience that has largely grown up in America? Bad copy, should be "...explores what it's like..."

‘There’s a party in my tummy, so yummy… so yummy….

I still use this to get my 5 year old to eat the rest of the food on his plate. He feels sorry for the broccoli wants to join the Mac and cheese in his tummy. So he eats the broccoli help him out.

Yo Gabba Gabba is one of the trippiest kids shows I've ever seen. Nonsensical plots (typical) and kids music by The Killers, Ladytron, Erykah Badu, The Flaming Lips, and Weird Al (uhm, not typical)...I'm kind of stoked, actually.
