Little America Debuts on Apple TV+
Apple’s new video streaming service, Apple TV+, seems to be more about quality than quantity. The new service features a small selection of content, however, critics and fans seem to love the shows.
Little America, a new anthology about the lives of recent American immigrants, receives rave reviews from Rolling Stone, CNN, the Chicago Sun-Times and many other critics. Executive produced by Lee Eisenberg (Good Boys,The Office), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, The Big Sick) and other Hollywood celebrities, the show employs innovative creation and production techniques to achieve authenticity.
Little America Strives for Authenticity
Apple’s arrival at the golden age of television is late, but better than never. HBO and Netflix have been streaming for well over a decade, while Apple focused almost entirely on the iPhone. Dwindling iPhone sales have forced the tech giant into developing subscription services, such as Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade.
Most big companies try to throw money at a problem, hoping for stellar results. Apple TV+ programming seems to have more direct involvement from the company. It’s not a completely outsourced project. Much like HBO, they actively develop their content.
The stories in Little America are real. Authenticity is key to the series. The directors for each episode are from the same country of origin as the subject. This ensures stories will be authentic without misconstrued cultural artifacts. Critics have taken note. The show is exceptional and has thrilled critics and fans alike.
Little America has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes Score
Apple TV+ is critical to the company’s success. Content giants like HBO and Netflix built their empires on streaming alone. If Apple can add successful video streaming to their suite of products and services, it would deliver unprecedented revenues.
Fortunately for Apple, fans and critics love Little America. The show has already earned a stellar 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with an audience score of 95%. If Apple can keep the content fresh and innovative, they may actually be a threat to Netflix, HBO and other video streamers.
