Apple's original TV shows and series: Apple to devleop a drama series based on the hit novel Shantaram

<p><strong>Updated 6/07/18:</strong> Variety reports that Apple is developing a drama series based on the hit novel Shantaram.</p><p>Apple is said to be spending as much as <a href="https://www.wsj.com/articles/apple-readies-1-billion-war-chest-for-hollywood-programming-1502874004" rel="nofollow">$1 billion over the course of 2018[/url] on original TV programming. That’s a lot of TV! It’s not the <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/16/business/media/netflix-earnings.html?_r=0" rel="nofollow">$8 billion Netflix is going to spend[/url], but it’s still a huge commitment.</p><p>What can you get for a billion dollars? Well, some simple math gives us 200 episodes at $5 million a piece (a reasonable per-episode price for high-end TV). But we’re not likely to actually see 10-20 shows with 10-20 episodes each, all costing around that much. For starters, that billion dollars has to cover a lot more than per-episode production costs.</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3245534/streaming-services/list-of-apple-tv-shows-and-series-news-actors-release-dates.html#jump">To read this article in full, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
