Will the series feature more futuristic or high-tech homes? That's one of the many questions we have about this upcoming Apple docuseries.

Apple is taking the fight seriously to both Netflix and Amazon in the original content space. The tech company has tapped Altimeter Films, Time Inc. Productions, and producer Matthew Weaver to create a 10-episode documentary called Home. It’ll take viewers inside what are considered “extraordinary” homes and will feature the designers who created them. It isn’t known who will be narrating or hosting the documentary series or when it’ll air. We do know Apple isn’t skimping on bringing on the talent to work on its projects. Weaver is known for his work on musical Rock of Ages and documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi and the Netflix series Chef’s Table.

This is the first docuseries ordered under the new worldwide video programming division the company has, which is led by Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg. It shows the diversity the company is aiming for when it comes to content. The company already has three scripted series pickups; morning show drama that’s executive produced by and starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon; a Ronald D. Moore space drama; and Amazing Stories, a reimagining of the anthology from Steven Spielberg and Bryan Fuller. It’s uncertain where Apple will release this show, whether on Apple Music or on an entirely different service. But we’ll find that out soon enough.
