Maya Rudolph signs first-look deal with Apple TV+
Maya Rudolph, fresh off the premiere of her new comedy series “Loot,” has signed a first-look deal with Apple TV+
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Animal Pictures, which is owned by Rudolph and Natasha Lyonne, will give Apple the first shot at new film and television projects.
Maya Rudolph and Natasha Lyonne’s Animal Pictures is formalizing its relationship with Apple TV+.
The streamer has signed a first-look deal with Animal Pictures, led by president Danielle Renfew Behrens. Under the multi-year deal, Apple will get the opening shot at series and digital feature projects developed at the company.
Rudolph’s new series “Loot” just premiered on Apple TV+ on Friday. The series follows the story of a billionaire who discovers giving back is better than hording all of that money.
In “Loot,” billionaire Molly Novak (Rudolph) has a dream life, complete with private jets, a sprawling mansion and a gigayacht — anything her heart desires. But when her husband of 20 years betrays her, she spirals publicly, becoming fuel for tabloid fodder. She’s reaching rock bottom when she learns, to her surprise, that she has a charity foundation run by the no-nonsense Sofia Salinas (Rodriguez), who pleads with Molly to stop generating bad press. With her devoted assistant Nicholas (Kim Booster) by her side, and with the help of Sofia and team — including mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Faxon) and her optimistic, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Funches) — Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Giving back to others might be what she needs to get back to herself.
