Apple TV+ comedy series "Dickinson" made its global premiere on Thursday evening at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn.


Created, written, and executive produced by Alena Smith, the 19th-century coming-of-age story explores the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson. The series stars Oscar- and Emmy-nominated actresses Hailee Steinfeld and Jane Krakowski.

Apple says the complete 10-episode first season of "Dickinson" will be available to stream on Apple TV+ starting November 1, the day the service launches, in over 100 countries and regions around the world.


In other Apple TV+ news, Variety reports that screenwriter and producer Monica Beletsky has reached a multi-year deal with Apple to develop and produce television series exclusively for Apple's streaming video service. Her previous credits include "Fargo," "Friday Night Lights," and "Parenthood."

Apple TV+ will be available in the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, Roku, select smart TVs, and other devices, including online at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.

Such an amazing, and historical, literary figure. I hope she gets a show or movie that more accurately depicts her life someday.

Just nerding out as a fan of her poetry.

Is there anyone who is looking forward to this? I know Apple is in their steaming infancy but still.
That iPhone money won’t last forever, and this certainly isn’t the answer.
I guess I’ve turned into another one of those “ Apple please stick to tech” kinds people.
You think Apple TV+ is Apple’s plan to replace $165B in annual iPhone revenue?

And do you really think iPhone is even close to done?

All these shows yet rumours about an update to the Apple TV system seem to have faded.

You would think launching an updated box would help boost interest in ATV+ before the streaming launch.

What purpose would an updated Apple TV serve for ATV+? The current one has 4K and Dolby Vision... There's nothing a new one would have that would enhance Apple TV+

If anything it would confuse people even more, they would think that they have to buy a new Apple TV to subscribe to ATV+
