Apple TV+ has teased fans with footage from some of the brand new shows which are coming to the streaming platform in 2024.

The studio - which has already launched hit shows Criminal Record and Masters of the Air this year - released the footage and extra details about its next shows on Monday, 5th February.

Check out Apple TV+’s exciting 2024 teaser below, and see below for more details on some of the most exciting upcoming series it teases.

The New Look - 14th February

First up this Valentine’s Day is The New Look, a new historical drama series based on the true story of how Christian Dior (Ben Mendelsohn), Coco Chanel (Juliette Binoche) and other fashion designers from their era navigated their material world in the context of World War II Nazi occupied Paris.

The drama also stars Maisie Williams as Catherine Dior, John Malkovich as Lucien Lelong, Emily Mortimer as Elsa Lombardi, Claes Bang as Spatz, and Glenn Close as Carmel Snow.

The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin - 1st March

Debuting on Apple TV+ next month is this Noel Fielding starring six-episode comedy show based (veeeery loosely) on the life and times of famed highwayman, Dick Turpin.

Greg Davies and Hugh Bonneville both also star in this irreverent tale of Turpin - “the most famous but least likely of highway robbers, whose success is defined mostly by his charm, showmanship and great hair.”

Manhunt - 15th March

Based on the true-crime story of the search for Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, this seven-part series starring award-winning actor Tobias Menzies as John Wilkes Booth will debut its first two episodes on 15th March. 

The show will then continue dropping new episodes weekly on Fridays before coming to a close on 19th April.

Palm Royale - 20th March

This Palm Beach-set series stars award-winning actors Kristen Wigg, Laura Dern and Allison Janney, with guest appearances from Bruce Dern and the legendary Carol Burnett.

Palm Royale is a true underdog story that follows Maxine Simmons (Wiig) as she endeavours to break into Palm Beach high society. As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, Palm Royale asks the same question that still baffles us today: How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to get what someone else has?

Sugar - 5th April

Colin Farrell stars in this eight-episode drama series which will debut its first three episodes on 5th April 2024.

Sugar follows American private investigator John Sugar as he sets off after the mysteriously disappeared Olivia Siegel, the beloved granddaughter of legendary Hollywood producer Jonathan Siegel. As Sugar tries to determine what happened to Olivia, he will also unearth Siegel family secrets; some very recent, others long-buried.

Franklin - 12th April

This new limited series is another historical show for the streaming platform. Starring Michael Douglas as American founding father Benjamin Franklin, the show is based on Pulitzer Prize winner Stacy Schiff’s book, A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France, and the Birth of America.

Franklin will explore the thrilling story of the greatest gamble of Benjamin Franklin’s career - his eight year secret mission in France.

Dark Matter - 8th May

Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Connelly star in this sci-fi thriller series based on bestselling author Blake Crouch’s novel of the same name.

The series will follow Jason Dessen (Joel Edgerton), a physicist, professor and family man who - one night while walking home on the streets of Chicago - is abducted into an alternate version of his life. Wonder quickly turns to nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the mind-bending landscape of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.

Presumed Innocent - 14th June

This Jake Gyllenhaal starring limited series is again based on a novel of the same name, this time by author Scott Turow. The thriller stars Gyllenhaal as chief deputy prosecutor Rusty Sabich, and takes viewers on a gripping journey through a horrific murder that upends the Chicago Prosecuting Attorney’s office when one of its own is suspected of the crime. 

The series explores obsession, sex, politics, and the power and limits of love, as the accused fights to hold his family and marriage together. 

Land of Women - Summer 2024

Land of Women stars Eva Longoria as Gala, a New York empty-nester whose life is turned upside down when her husband implicates the family in financial improprieties and she is forced to flee the city alongside her aging mother (Carmen Maura) and college-age daughter (newcomer Victoria Bazúa). 

Shot in both English and Spanish, the show will be released in both languages simultaneously when it debuts on the streaming platform this summer.

Lady in the Lake - TBC

While a release date has yet to be confirmed for this Natalie Portman starring drama, footage from Lady in the Lake was included in Apple TV+'s recent teaser, suggesting TV fans may be able to expect this show sooner rather than later this year. 

Lady in the Lake will be set in 1960s Baltimore, and will focus on housewife and mother Maddie Schwartz (Portman) as an unsolved murder leads her to turn her life into that of an investigative journalist as she battles to get to the truth.
