Apple TV+ signs first-look deal with Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way
Apple TV+ has inked a first-look deal with Leonardo DiCaprio-founded Appian Way Productions.
Appian Way Productions, which was founded by DiCaprio and is run by Jennifer Davisson, is known for films such as "The Revenant," "The Wolf of Wall Street," and "Shutter Island."
According to Deadline, the multi-year deal will include both television projects and film features.
Aside from its film catalog, Appian Way has also worked on documentaries such as "Grant" and upcoming Disney+ show "The Right Stuff." Previously, Appian Way Productions had a deal with Paramount Pictures.
The deal will build on an existing relationship between DiCaprio and Apple. Earlier in 2020, Apple reportedly won the rights to Martin Scorsese-directed "Killers of the Flower Moon," which stars DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
In July, Apple also ordered a new thriller series dubbed "Shining Girls." That show is being produced by Appian Way and stars Elisabeth Moss.
