This makes me laugh like hell:
Though Apple isn’t looking to replicate the pace or scale of rival Netflix’s $6 billion annual spend, it is eager to be in the prestige content business in a significant way. Per multiple sources briefed on the company’s plans, its executives are looking for big, smart, splashy dramas, with at least one citing Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and The Crown as models. And though there are still plenty of questions — first and foremost, how will an Apple show be distributed? — talent is lining up to provide options.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
Apple doing Breaking Bad?
Stop. I’m dying from laughing!!!
This is a company that can’t even handle books.
And they’re going to do something as dark and frank and explicit as Breaking Bad?!!?
When pigs have wings!
