It's unclear yet what the TV series will be called and what the plot will be about. According to Variety, it already has a 10 episode order and will be produced by Shyamalan's Blinding Edge Pictures. Executive producers include Ashwin Rajan, Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black and Steve Tisch, and Taylor Latham will be co-executive producer. This marks Shyamalan's second foray into the small screen -- he was also the executive producer of Wayward Pines, which just ended its two-season run.
Shyamalan's yet-to-be-named TV series is just the latest addition to Apple's slate of originals. The Cupertino-based company has also signed The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon for a series about immigrants in America, Steven Spielberg for a new Amazing Stories anthology, three shows from Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine, a space drama from Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore and more. Who knows, Apple's TV lineup just might prove to be a worthy rival to Netflix and Hulu. Now that would be a twist no one saw coming.
