The report is claiming that Apple has inked a deal with Ronald D. Moore in which Moore will be creating a sci-fi TV series for the Cupertino company. For those unfamiliar, Moore is the showrunner for Starz series â€œOutlanderâ€� and had previously helped develop the new version Â of â€œBattlestar Galacticaâ€�, and has also worked on other sci-fi series like â€œStar Trek: The Next Generation,â€� â€œStar Trek: Deep Space Nine,â€� and â€œStar Trek: Voyager.â€�
The new series will be created by Moore together with Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi, with the series being produced by Sony and Tall Ship Productions. So far Appleâ€™s video efforts havenâ€™t exactly been particularly huge hits. â€œCarpool Karaokeâ€� was basically established before Apple bought the rights to it, and based on reviews so far, â€œPlanet of the Appsâ€� hasnâ€™t exactly been well-received.
However given Mooreâ€™s experience and work on other sci-fi series, hopefully this latest effort will yield some fruit. No word on when the series will be launched, but weâ€™ll keep our eyes peeled for more information.
