The report claims that producers and entertainment executives who have recently met with Apple executives have confirmed the date.
The sources have also stated that all productions will have a “bright, optimistic” outlook to fit with the Apple brand. Last October, it had also been reported that Apple is set to shy away from nudity, violence and offensive language in its titles.
While Apple spoke directly to the title, it is yet to confirm how it will distribute shows.
There are currently about 12 titles that have been commissioned by Apple, which has signed deals with Reese Witherspoon, Steven Spielberg, Damien Chazelle, M. Night Shyamalan, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Wiig.
If the reports are correct, then Apple’s titles will be released roughly around the same time as Disney’s anticipated SVOD debut.
