Apple has inked a multi-year content deal with A24, the studio behind Oscar-winning projects “Moonlight” and “Amy”, Reuters reports, citing a source familiar with the matter.
The partnership comes as the iPhone maker pushes deeper into original content and movies, the report noted.
Apple, which had allocated an initial US$1 billion for programming, earlier inked deals with Hollywood celebrities including Oprah Winfrey and ordered two seasons of a series starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston to bring in more content for its users.
Other projects Apple had announced include a remake of Steven Spielberg’s 1980s science fiction anthology series “Amazing Stories,” and a drama from “La La Land” movie director Damian Chazelle.
New York-based A24’s Academy Award nominations include “Lady Bird” and “Room”.
