Apple Orders Jon Favreau ‘Prehistoric Planet’ Series [Report]

Apple has ordered a natural history series entitled, ‘Prehistoric Planet’ from Jon Favreau and ‘Planet Earth II’ producer Mike Gunton. The series will recreate the last days of the dinosaurs and is produced by BBC Studio’s Natural History Unit, reports Variety.

The big-ticket natural history order comes after Apple unveiled a starry slate for its upcoming Apple TV Plus streaming service, which launches this fall. News of its international plans, however, has been thin on the ground. Former Channel 4 programming boss Jay Hunt is spearheading the international lineup from London, but little has been revealed about her first program orders.

Using CGI, the show will take viewers back in time to experience earth sixty six million years ago. Visual effects artist Andrew R. Jones (‘Avatar’) and producer Tim Walker are also on the team.

We’ll share more details about the Apple TV+ streaming video service as they become available. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
