Apple’s highly anticipated and critically acclaimed new anthology series “Little America” is now streaming exclusively on Apple TV+ around the world. “Little America” goes beyond the headlines to bring to life the funny, romantic, heartfelt and surprising stories of immigrants in America. Launched just over two months ago, Apple TV+ is the latest to join Apple’s lineup of Services offerings, which includes Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Card, the App Store, Apple Music, iCloud and more.
Inspired by the true stories featured in Epic Magazine, “Little America” originates from Emmy Award-nominated Lee Eisenberg, Academy Award nominees Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, Emmy Award winner Alan Yang and Epic Magazine. The first season of eight episodes will debut in its entirety, and has earned a critics’ score of 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The series has already been renewed for a second season.
“‘Little America’ celebrates stories that are universally human, emotional and inspiring — it represents exactly what we’re building at Apple TV+,” said Zack Van Amburg, Apple’s head of Worldwide Video. “Each episode of ‘Little America’ spotlights a beautiful experience from a different part of the world, and we hope it resonates with people everywhere.”
In its first year of launch, Apple TV+ has received historic awards recognitions, including a Critics’ Choice Award win and multiple Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for “The Morning Show,” a GLAAD Media Award nomination for “Dickinson,” and a Cinema for Peace Award for “The Elephant Queen.”
“Lee, Kumail, Emily and the entire team behind ‘Little America’ have created a special, one-of-a-kind series that embraces stories of hope and triumph,” said Jamie Erlicht, Apple’s head of Worldwide Video. “We’re looking forward to sharing this series with Apple TV+ audiences around the world and bringing them even more meaningful, unique stories this year and beyond.”
