Alfonso Cuarón Scores Contract with Apple TV
2019 just keeps getting better and better for Alfonso Cuarón. NBC Latino reports that the Mexican film director has just signed a huge deal to produce projects exclusively for Apple TV+.
Cuarón’s career has mostly been film projects, but having co-created earlier TV shows including “Believe” and the Mexican anthology series “La Hora Marcada,” it’s no question he is well-equipped for his next chapter with Apple.
At the end of the day, the deal is not exactly a shock: Cuarón has solidified himself as one of the entertainment industry’s leading artists after receiving wide-spread recognition for his work on the critically-acclaimed film Roma, which won him three Oscars. He had previously won Best Director for Gravity in 2013.
Cuarón is just one of the many top-brass people in the industry being courted by big-name streaming services. Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu have made similar deals with other celebrity actors, writers, producers, and directors to create content exclusively for their own respective platforms.
