Apple is well known as a technology giant, but companies are expanding their operations in modern times and integrating their marketing activities in order to find new business avenues. Apple is starting its own TV series in this regard which will be the first of its kind. This is a casting call like no other because it calls for app developers to come forward in order to participate in this upcoming technology series.
About the Series
Apple has given to production rights to Propagate, a new production company which is designed to produce the series. The company has Ben Silverman and Howard Owens who are famous for the shows of the Biggest Loser and Master Chef Junior.
The reality series envisioned by Apple is designed to feature the whole process which occurs behind the development and final implementation of an app sold on the Apple Store. The company believes that it will be a great show and will truly give motivation to young app developers. The developers who reach to the final round in this series will receive a supporting investment of around ten million dollars. The apps which do appear in the show will also be prominently visible and available on the App Store from Apple.
About the Call
The call is for developers who are willing to take part in a reality series.
