The writer, director and showrunner of Defending Jacob reportedly agreed to a long-term deal to make additional shows for Apple TV+. Their first collaboration went so well that Mark Bomback signed a exclusive agreement with Apple.
Bomback did well for Apple TV+
Defending Jacob ranks among the two fastest-growing series premieres for the fledgling streaming network. It did fairly well with critics, and even better with audiences, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
And Bomback had a long history as a screenwriter even before that. He penned two Planet of the Apes movies, The Wolverine for Marvel, and more than a dozen other movies.
Apple hopes he can repeat this earlier success with additional shows exclusively for its subscribers, according to Deadline.
