Oppenheimer becomes the second UK executive to join Apple’s TV ventures, after it hired Hunt as its European director of worldwide video.
The new exec will be a London-based creative on Hunt’s team and work to source programming internationally, as he reports to the Channel 4 alum.
Oppenheimer stepped down as acting head of BBC Films in December, after 19 years with the business.
He has executive produced a range of hit films from I, Daniel Blake to Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa and landed an Emmy nomination in 2014 for One Life, the Daniel Craig-narrated BBC Films documentary.
The news arrives shortly after Apple ordered its first international series from Canal +. The title will be an English-language adaptation of French series Calls.
