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.

Let us not forget her wonderful job in Veep! Definitely love the Airpods quip as well.

EDIT: Glad to see they updated the story to include Veep.

Apple is KILLING it! SO awesome! I can guarantee now that Apple will announce a TON on Sunday - they are making a ton of moves in the run-up to Sunday, and will use these as the appetizer to the rest. I love how they are utilizing the Critics Week to get announcements made.

Now, if they could take over the Dark Tower series that Amazon passed on, that would be too good.

Veep was always very good, and sometimes fantastic - and wow, did they stick the landing on the series finale (so many shows miss by a mile), that epilog was absolutely pitch perfect.

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.
