Apple is also developing a new original drama series entitled, "Are You Sleeping", starring Octavia Spencer. The drama is created and written by Nichelle Tramble Spellman and produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Chernin Ent/Endeavor Content. Based on the novel by Kathleen Barber, Are You Sleeping will offer a glimpse into the obsession with true crime podcasts and "challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage."
As Apple continues its foray into original programming, analysts speculate that President Trump's cut in corporate taxes and the one-time allowance for companies to repatriate overseas cash could result in a large Apple acquisition. One potential candidate is Netflix, a purchase which would immediately make Apple a leader in streaming video content.
