Apple TV+ has given a straight-to-series order for "The Big Door Prize," a half-hour comedy based on the M.O. Walsh novel of the same name.

The 10-episode series hails from Emmy Award-winning writer and executive producer David West Read, as well as Skydance Television and CJ ENM/Dragon Studio. Apple landed the series in a "competitive situation" and won out against multiple bidders, Deadline reported Friday.

"The Big Door Prize" follows the residents of a small town called Deerfield who, one day, discover a magical, destiny-predicting machine in their grocery store.

Read, known for his work on "Schitt's Creek," will write the adaptation and serve as showrunner and executive producer. Miky Lee and Hyun Park of CJ ENM/Dragon Studio will also executive produce along with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost of Skydance Television.

The series will mark the second Apple TV+ exclusive hailing from Skydance Television, following drama series "Foundation."
