Apple Signs Overall Deal with Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Apple TV+

-

Apple has signed a sweeping overall deal with multi-award-winning actress and producer Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the company announced today.

Under the multi-year agreement, Louis-Dreyfus will develop new projects exclusively for Apple TV+ as both an executive producer and star. The deal marks her first-ever overall deal with a streaming service.

“I am thrilled about this new partnership with my friends at Apple,” said Louis-Dreyfus. “Also, many thanks and kudos to my representatives for structuring the deal in such a way that I am paid in AirPods.”

One of the most influential names in Hollywood, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is best known for her iconic roles in Saturday Night Live, Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine and Veep. She has broken records with multiple Emmys, Golden Globes, SAG and Critics Choice Awards for her work as an actress and producer, and is a recipient of the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

Louis-Dreyfus will be seen in Searchlight’s upcoming Downhill, where she stars alongside Will Ferrell. The biting comedy, for which she also serves as a producer, is directed by Jim Rash and Nat Faxon, and is inspired by the 2014 Swedish film Force Majeure.

Apple TV+ launched November 1, 2019 in over 100 countries and regions. The service is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung smart TVs and Roku devices, as well as online at TV.Apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial. Customers who purchase a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch or Mac can enjoy one year of Apple TV+ for free.
