Last month Apple struck a deal with France's Canal+ who will offer the Apple TV 4K internet-streaming device as a set-top box option for its subscribers. Today we're learning that Apple will make an English version of the short-form series alongside CANAL+.
It's being reported by Hollywood Reporter that Apple has handed out a 10-episode straight-to-series order for an English adaptation of the French short-form series Calls. As part of the deal, Apple has also acquired the rights to the first season of the French original.
Calls is a CANAL+ original series developed and produced under the network's Creation Originale label. Created by Timothée Hochet, it's described as a project that takes storytelling innovation to the next level, allowing audiences to experience short stories through real-life audio sources and minimal visuals. The new iteration will be co-produced by CANAL+." It's a bizarre concept that you could check out in the YouTube video below.
