When Apple TV+ launches in less than two weeks, one of the major originals on the service is “Dickinson”. The half-hour comedy series explores the constraints of society, gender and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson. The show stars Hailee Steinfeld, Jane Krakowski, Toby Huss, Adrian Blake Enscoe, Anna Baryshnikov, and Ella Hunt.
Unlike most shows on the service, Apple will be taking a page from Netflix on the release on the show. The service is making all ten episodes of “Dickinson” available to stream on day one throughout 100 countries around the world. This is very different from one of their other big hits, “The Morning Show”, which will release three episodes on launch day and then the remaining weekly for its complete season.
Apple TV+ will debut on November 1st with seven original series and the movie Elephant Queen. The streaming services costs $4.99 a month, but you will get a year free with the purchase of any iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV.
In addition to “Dickinson” and “The Morning Show,” November 1st will see the premieres of See with Jason Momoa, For All Mankind a show by Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica writer Ronald D. Moore. They will also debut three kids series - Snoopy in Space, Helpsters by Sesame Workshop, and Ghostwriter.
Over the next year, they will bring shows like Amazing Stories by Steven Spielberg, Little America by Kumail Nanjiani, Little Voice by J.J. Abrams & Sara Bareilles, and Oprah’s Book Club by Oprah Winfrey.
