Apple has announced that it will premiere its TV series, “Loot.” The series is a comedy about two kids trying to find their fortune amid the chaos of war. It also stars Ben Mendelsohn and Tom Holland.
Apple joins a burgeoning list of companies that have tried their hands at creating original content for its customers, including Netflix and Amazon. This is Apple’s second effort after releasing “Planet of the Apps.
It’s important to note that Apple is not interested in making blockbuster TV series or movies. “We’re not trying to get involved in Netflix. We don’t have the stomach for that.
That’s what they do,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior software and services vice president, at a briefing announcing the content. Apple will be releasing approximately 20 original shows annually through the iTunes service and available on iOS devices with high-definition video streaming.

The storyline of the Loot
The Loot series by George Ziets is a tale of looters, a tribe of people descended from the first to greet humanity from the sky. They share their world with humans and must defend themselves while they wait for their promised land to come back into view.
The story follows three families: one human, one nomad, and one looter. All sides struggle on the dreary landscape but hope glimmers in their accounts. Much suffering, love, and sacrifice happen along the way. It’s a story of strength, perseverance, and ultimate friendship that no one could ever mistake for “real life” living.
‘Loot’ Team’s Maya Rudolph on Building a Strong Cast: “Everyone on the Series Might Be the Top from Their Series”
When “Loot” premiered on NBC, there was a lot of buzz about how all the actors in the pilot might become breakout stars. But it turned out that not all the cast members would become household names.
The show’s star, Maya Rudolph, has been on Emmy-nominated NBC shows for years and has played leads in films like Bridesmaids and The Help. But she’s not the kind of household name that leads to a series being a Top 20 show, and “Loot” has struggled in the ratings and will likely not be renewed by NBC.
So it’s a “what if” moment – what if Ira (William H. Macy), the patriarch of the Matzah family, had been played by someone else?
“That was my first reaction! I’m a William fan. I didn’t know much about him, and when [casting directors] Judy Henderson and Ashly Costa on ‘Loot: The Series’ called me and said there was this guy named William H. Macy who was interested in playing the part, I had only seen him in one movie and I never saw him on TV.
