It’s a busy day for Apple TV+ as two new shows and the Tom Hanks World War II drama Greyhound all made their debut Friday on Apple’s streaming TV service.
Check out the trailers — and Cult of Mac‘s reviews — below.
Greyhound, which is both written and directed by Hanks, is about a navy captain attempting to get a convoy through submarine-heavy waters. You can read Cult of Mac‘s review here. Apple acquired the movie for $70 million after the coronavirus pandemic scuppered chances for it to be shown in theaters.
However, Hanks has made comments which seemed to be critical of Apple — although he later walked these back, suggesting that he’s very happy to be working with the Cupertino company after all.
Alongside Greyhound, Apple TV+ also debuted the first four episodes of Little Voice. This series from producer J.J. Abrams, songwriter Sara Bareilles and writer Jessie Nelson is about wannabe singer Bess King striving to live out her dreams. You can read Cult of Mac‘s review of the show here.
Apple debuted the first four episodes of Little Voice today. Apple TV+ will debut new episodes of the 9-episode season every Friday.
The last new show to debut on Apple TV+ Friday is Greatness Code. This seven-episode series (read Cult of Mac‘s review here) tells the story of seven iconic athletes as they “pull back the curtain on a pivotal career moment when they touched greatness.”
Athletes in the series include LeBron James, Tom Brady, Alex Morgan, Usain Bolt, Shaun White, Katie Ledecky, and Kelly Slater.
Greyhound and more on Apple TV+
All of the above shows, along with every other Apple Original, are available to view on Apple TV+. The streaming service costs $4.99 per month. Unless, that is, you’ve bought a new iPhone, Mac, iPad or Apple TV in which case Apple throws in a free year’s subscription.
