Apple Orders ‘Little Voices’ Series from Producer JJ Abrams

We did cover earlier that Apple really, really wants to expand in the Original Television content field. Well, they have taken another step in that direction. Apple has now ordered a new half-hour dramedy called “Little Voices” straight to series.

The show comes from executive producers J.J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles and is described as a love letter to “the diverse musicality of New York.”

According to reports, “Little Voices” will explore the lives of characters in their early 20s as they struggle to find their “authentic voice,” and with Bareilles as executive producer, the show will also debut original songs throughout the first season. Apple has ordered 10 episodes for the first season.

Screenwriting bandwagon has been handover to Jessie Nelson who is known for shows like “I Am Sam”, “Stepmom”, and “Corrina, Corrina”. He will have major duties like script writing, directing and will be the executive producer for the first episode as of now. As far as the actors are concerned, no words have been out yet.

One interesting little fact to notice here is that Little Voices is the first show from Apple that will be connected to J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, which also produces current shows like “Westworld” on HBO, “Castle Rock” on Hulu.

Apple is filling its bucket of original content by collecting various different kind of shows for its streaming video catalogue. We earlier covered Apple’s heavy investment in the original video content. Apple has already shows like “Dickinson” starring Hailee Steinfeld, “Foundation” an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s, an animated show called “Central Park” from the creator of “Bob’s Burgers”, “Are You Sleeping?”, as well as a series starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. The company is also said to be working on a reboot of “Amazing Stories” with Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.

After gathering a bunch of new shows, it is rumoured that these shows will start to premiere sometime before March 2019.
