The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the Richard Gere drama, Bastards, is out at Apple’s new service, TV+. Scrapping a show before the first episode even airs isn’t uncommon in the realm of TV.

Apple’s Messy Teaser Prompts a Lot of Questions, Most Notably: Why?

It feels like it’s been years – rather than mere months – since Apple introduced its roster of original programming for its forthcoming streaming service Apple TV+. But even prior to its official announcement, reports were already swirling that its offerings were so dull that the product was being referred to internally as “expensive NBC.” And reader, if a teaser trailer for The Morning Show is any indication, it appears those rumours have been extremely generous.

Apple Used Its Oprah Moment to Pull One Over on Us

I will admit it – I fangirled over Oprah. Not to her face. She was some 30 feet from me, on stage in a long flowing Colonel Sanders getup that very few people could pull off (Oprah did). I fangirled over Alfre Woodard and Jason Momoa, too. I thought about how short Steve Spielberg looked on stage, and about how thick and luxurious Ewan McGregor’s hair is.
