Annie Weisman signs multi-year, multi-project deal with Apple TV Plus
Annie Weisman, the producer of the popular show 'Desperate Housewives' has signed a multi-year, multi-project deal with Apple TV Plus. Weisman will produce multiple shows for Apple TV Plus, as part of the deal.
Annie Weisman already has a show called 'Physical', coming up at Apple TV Plus. The show was green-lit by Apple TV Plus much before any talks between Weissman and Apple about the aforementioned deal.
Before signing with Apple TV Plus, Weisman had a deal going with Universal TV, which had resulted in the show, 'Almost Family.'
'Physical' is a series centred on a timid long-suffering housewife, living a tortured life in the Southern California of the eighties. The story follows her as she finds an empowering route out of her emotional abyss - through the empowering route of aerobics. Weisman has created and executive produced the series and is also the showrunner. Rose Byrne plays the lead protagonist in 'Physical'.
Annie Weisman is also a playwright, besides being a producer and creator of TV shows.
