The Ultimate Guide to This Summer's Fresh Picks on APPLE TV+

If you’re a movie lover, a series junkie, a family sitcom fan, a mystery buff, an action junkie, or just love getting lost in a great story, this summer should have you covered. On 30 June, APPLE TV+ will debut six new movies and shows, which might not sound like a lot, but you’ll soon see that each one promises something a little different. And because the brand doesn’t generate as much content per year as Netflix, these additions feel like special events. In fact, they are; just read on and see for yourself.

Movies and Shows Debuting on APPLE TV+ This Summer

The Greatest Beer Run Ever

By Peter Farrelly, who directed Green Book, this movie is based on the story of Chickie Donohue, who started brewing beer in his Kansas City basement to teach himself the craft. Then being drafted, he decides to take his restricted leave time and travel to Vietnam with a keg of beer for his friends fighting in the war. This true story has a comic side, but unfortunately for viewers, Farrelly teamed up with one of the individuals involved in the making of the disastrous, tone-dead comedy of last year, The King’s Man. Cast Members: Zac Efron, Bill Murray, Russell Crowe, Jake Lacy. Release Date: 1 September.

Why APPLE Continues to Shine

Beyond the shows and movies themselves, what you’re paying for in an APPLE TV+ subscription is APPLE itself, as a brand and a platform: the company that markets for quality, innovation and user experience. Whether it’s an open-world game, a sci-fi epic or a blockbuster thriller, APPLE appears focused on the next frontier in media: not just content, but experience. Whether and how you consume it on an APPLE TV or an iPhone, the idea is that you don’t just watch, but experience and remember.

APPLE’s commitment to storytelling and entertainment is central to its strategy for their streaming service. It is breeding exclusives from global superstars and curating a carefully managed mix of limited partnerships. When it comes to original content – and, increasingly, when it comes to television – the name of the game is content. APPLE TV+ is the coming-out party of the summer for the best and the brightest in high-quality televisual content.

This season’s APPLE TV+ programming schedule shows exactly where the tech giant’s focus lies, and why: be it heartwarming or nail-biting, every show and film is as distinctive, as diverse – and as APPLE-y – as you would expect.
