"We love being at the forefront of Apple's investment in scripted programming", Jennifer Salke, NBC's entertainment president, said in a statement. Deadline is reporting that everyone's favorite Mac maker zeroing in on a reboot of Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories" as one of its first series in its foray into original programming under Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg, heads of the newly formed worldwide video programming division. The show has since developed a cult-like status. The original series won five Emmys over its two seasons. It was not clear if Mr. Spielberg will be actively involved in the series.

We've reached out to Apple for comment on the report.

The punitive tariffs will now have to be approved by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) early next year. Some analysts said the muted response reflected a view that the penalties might not actually be applied.

Reuters is reporting today that "Apple Inc has signed a content deal with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television and Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal television production business". Sources tell the Wall Street Journal that ten episodes of the fantasy, sci-fi and horror anthology series will be produced as part of the deal, with a budget of more than $5 million per episode. But selling media services has taken on a new urgency at the company as sales of iPhones have slowed. Its Carpool Karaoke spin-off series debuted this fall, and Cupertino unveiled an app development competition series (called Planet of the Apps) at WWDC this summer. Initially set up at NBC in 2015, the reboot comes from writer Bryan Fuller (American Gods), who is executive-producing along with Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey from Spielberg's Amblin TV. In the meantime: where do you folks standing on Amazing Stories?
