So this is like MTV Cribs with Xzibit??

Other original programming coming from Apple includes “Are You Sleeping”, “Amazing Stories”, and a space drama series from the creator of Battlestar Galactica.

These original shows will most likely be part of Apple Music, to offer more value and retain existing paying subscribers. So far, we haven’t seen major hit shows from Apple yet (Carpool Karaoke was cringey), but we’ll have to wait and see what comes next.
