Apple may not spend as much as its biggest rivals on streaming, like Disney and Amazon, but it has some of the biggest sci-fi shows on television today. “For All Mankind” and “Foundation” are examples of shows that bleed technical quality in portraying science fiction.
According to a range of interviews from Inverse, Apple’s ability to take on sci-fi with open minds and open wallets is what makes Apple TV+ stand out among other streamers. Producers and writers agree that sci-fi has often been a difficult pitch to studios, as they can be high-budget with limited reach, but this hasn’t been an issue with Apple.
