The thriller series will be Shyamalan’s second foray into television. His first TV project was the Fox series “Wayward Pines,” which recently ended after two seasons. He most recently wrote, produced, and directed the hit film “Split” and is preparing the sequel “Glass,” both of which tie into his 2000 film “Unbreakable”. Shyamalan is also known for his work on blockbusters like “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs”.

The series will be produced by Shyamalan’s Blinding Edge Pictures with Ashwin Rajan serving as executive producer. Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black and Steve Tisch of Escape Artists will also executive produce, with Taylor Latham co-executive producing.

Basgallop’s recent credits include “Berlin Station,” “24: Legacy,” and “24: Live Another Day.” He is also known for his work on shows like “Inside Men,” “Hotel Babylon” (which he created), “EastEnders,” and “To the Ends of the Earth.”

Apple has given out a number of straight-to-series orders to date, including a morning show drama from Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon, as well as a reboot of “Amazing Stories” from executive producer Steven Spielberg.

    Think its need that Apple is getting their own content. Its just with out a service like netflix its kind of expensive, or it could be. Although if you are tv free, and you only buy the occasional show, I guess its ok

  • I would like to see them get serious about the gaming end of things since they have such a big platform for it anyway. Better TV shows would be cool but better casual games would be awesome.
