Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep,” “Seinfeld”) has reportedly inked an overall deal with Apple TV+ to develop new projects exclusively for the platform as executive producer and star. No initial project was announced with the statement.
Louis-Dreyfus says in a statement: “I am thrilled about this new partnership with my friends at Apple. Also, many thanks and kudos to my representatives for structuring the deal in such a way that I am paid in AirPods.”
She isn’t the only one though to sign up with Apple today. Oscar-winner Meryl Streep has also closed a deal to narrate “Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth,” an animated Earth Day short film that will premiere exclusively on Apple TV+ on April 17th.
The 36-minute film is based on Oliver Jeffers’ novel about a precocious seven-year-old (Jacob Tremblay) who, over the course of Earth Day, learns about the wonders of the planet from his parents (Chris O’Dowd and Ruth Negga) – and from a mysterious exhibit at the aptly titled Museum of Everything.
Philip Hunt helms that short.
