Apple has signed a deal with Pulitzer Prize-winning Futuro Studios and is now courting other companies in hopes of turning podcasts into original Apple TV+ content.
Future Studios, known for the criminal justice series “Suave,” has signed a deal that would give the studio funding for new podcasts. In exchange, Apple would have the right to turn any podcast into a movie or TV show.
Apple has also been courting other studios, according to Bloomberg, and has spent around $10 million so far. Investments have been led by Apple TV+, rather than Apple’s podcast arm.
