Apple, NBC Partner For Spielberg's 'Amazing Stories'

In its first big commission, Apple announced that it had struck a deal with Spielberg's Amblin Television and Universal Television to create ten episodes of the fantasy anthology Amazing Stories.

But NBC Entertainment, which worked with Spielberg's Amblin Television on the original science fiction series in the 1980s, confirmed a deal was on the cards. While that's around half of what Game of Thrones costs, it's the same as what HBO spent on each episode of the excellent Boardwalk Empire.

"Amazing Stories" ran on NBC from 1985 to 1987, according to MacRumors.

Like "Twilight Zone", the show features a new story with each new episode.

NBCU and Apple have tapped Bryan Fuller, best known for his work on the "Star Trek" franchise, to serve as the show's executive producer.

Earlier this year, Apple made its original content ambitions clear when it hired top Sony TV executives Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg to run video programming.

"It's wonderful to be reunited with our colleagues Zack [Van Amburg] and Jamie [Erlicht] in their new capacity at Apple".

It has also been buying original movies and TV shows for its music app, the second-largest paid music service in the world after Spotify.

Director Steven Spielberg speaks onstage during American Film Institutes 44th Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute show to John Williams at Dolby Theatre on June 9, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

Currently, Apple releases reality shows like "Planet of the Apps" and "Carpool Karaoke" on the Apple Music app.
