HBO’s former executive Richard Plepler is ready to turn producer for Apple TV+.
Plepler was CEO and chairman of HBO until February 2019 - a few months after its parent company, WarnerMedia got acquired by AT&T.
Plepler’s production company, Eden Productions, has clinched a five-year deal to produce exclusive content (including documentaries, television series, and movies) for Apple TV+ - Apple’s video streaming platform which launched in November 2019.
Apple TV+ charges its users $4.99 a month.
Meanwhile, HBO is introducing a streaming service (at $14.99 per month charge) in May, which is expected to offer current and past HBO programming, alongwith original content, plus content from other AT&T brands.
