Apple TV+ Releases Trailers for 'City on Fire' and 'Prehistoric Planet Season 2' that Debut next month
Patently Apple first reported on Apple green lighting an 8-part drama titled "City on Fire" back in late June 2021. Then we discovered an Apple company called "Apple Video Programming LLC" last weekend in the U.S. Patent and Trademark database. The service lists the trademark filings for all up and coming or past Movie or TV+ series names. We highlighted "City of Fire," as it was one of the latest that Apple Video Programming listed with the U.S. and Hong Kong databases. Today, Apple TV+ released the trailer for "City on Fire."
A music-driven tale and family saga, the “City on Fire" series will make its global premiere on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes on Friday, May 12.
For those that are Series-Bingers, you'll be able to watch the entire series on June 16, 2023
In “City on Fire,” an NYU student is shot in Central Park on the Fourth of July, 2003. Samantha is alone; there are no witnesses and very little physical evidence. Her friends’ band is playing at her favorite downtown club but she leaves to meet someone, promising to return. She never does. As the crime against Samantha is investigated, she’s revealed to be the crucial connection between a series of mysterious citywide fires, the downtown music scene, and a wealthy uptown real estate family fraying under the strain of the many secrets they keep.
Chase Sui Wonders stars as Samantha, and Wyatt Oleff plays Charlie, a friend of Samantha's who is struggling to cope with the death of his father on 9/11 two years earlier. After Samantha is shot, he stops at nothing to unravel the mystery of what happened.
Stunning First-Look Teaser for Season 2 of "Prehistoric Planet
Apple TV+ today shared the first-look image and teaser for the second season of award-winning natural history series “Prehistoric Planet,” from executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton and BBC Studios Natural History Unit (“Planet Earth”), narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
Set to debut globally in a five-day, week-long event on Apple TV+ starting on May 22, 2023, the new episodes transport viewers millions of years in the past to discover our world — and the dinosaurs that roamed it — all in extraordinary detail. This teaser traverses the globe to a land before our time, using the latest scientific research and stunning visual effects to bring audiences never-before-seen species on-screen, including notable dinosaurs new this season:
- Isisaurus — An Indian sauropod (long-necked, plant-eating dinosaur) that made their home in an extreme volcanic region known as the Deccan Traps, laying eggs in volcanic heated terrain.
- Pectinodon — A fierce hunter and fond parent, this bird-like North American feathered dinosaur was part of the troodontid family. A sharp-clawed, long-legged predator, it was an adaptable hunter, its teeth and jaws suggesting that many sorts of small animals would have been on the menu.
- Quetzalcoatlus and Hatzegopteryx — The biggest creatures ever to soar the skies, these gargantuan pterosaurs (prehistoric flying reptiles) were the size of a giraffe or small aircraft and are some of Prehistoric Planets most charismatic characters. And many more!
“Prehistoric Planet” combines award-winning wildlife filmmaking, the latest paleontology learnings and state-of-the-art technology to unveil the spectacular habitats and inhabitants of ancient Earth for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience. The series is produced by the world-renowned team at BBC Studios Natural History Unit with support from the photorealistic visual effects of MPC (“The Lion King,” “The Jungle Book”) applied to concept art created by Jellyfish Pictures (“The Book of Boba Fett,” “Spirit: Untamed”). “Prehistoric Planet” season two continues to bring Earth’s history to life like never before as the series presents new dinosaurs, new habitats and new scientific discoveries while taking viewers around the world in an epic five-night adventure. With new dinosaurs like the Tarchia, one of the largest Ankylosauri, to returning fan-favorites like the Tyrannosaurus rex, and many more, "Prehistoric Planet” returns with an all-new season of prehistoric wonders.
