Apple TV+ is turning into a hitmaker

The Weekender
Ted Lasso wasn’t a fluke.
Apple TV+ scored its first big hit with that screwball sports comedy, but now it’s got not one but three simultaneous winners on its hands:
  1. Severance, a weird, sci-fi-tinged thriller that just wrapped its mind-wiping first season (and got renewed for a second one).
  2. CODA, the charming, Oscar-winning film about a teen girl who is the only hearing member of a deaf family.
  3. And now Slow Horses, the spy series starring a flatulent Gary Oldman that premiered April 1.
All three of them ranked in the top 10 across streaming services last week. It’s been a slow start, but after a couple of years, Apple TV+ is finally a serious streaming contender.

P.S. Also this week: We’ve got a date for WWDC22 (hear our predictions for Apple’s big event in our podcast). Plus, iWork adds major new features, more juicy Apple rumors spill, and Ukrainians use Find My to watch Russian troop movements in real time.
