A few hours ago, the 71st Emmy Awards ceremony took place at the Microsoft Theater in the city of Los Angeles. It was a night full of surprises and in which it was expected that the all-powerful ‘Game of Thrones’ would once again sweep the board as it did in previous years. However, only managed to win two statuettes : best dramatic series and best male supporting role for Peter Dinklage for his role as Tyrion Lannister.

Fleabag won the recognition for best comedy series and best leading actress in a comedy series (Phoebe Waller Bridge), as well as Chernobyl won the award for best mini-series. Apple, although it has not yet presented any fiction (it will do so when Apple TV+ is officially released), was also present at the gala.

During these months Apple has been publishing teasers and trailers about the first fictions that we will be able to see on Apple TV+ like ‘Dickinson’, ‘The Morning Show’, ‘See’, ‘For all Mankind’ and ‘Snoopy in Space’, but taking advantage of the breaks of the Emmy gala they have introduced two more: Servant’ and ‘Truth Be Told’ , as a count Screen Times

Servant’, with the stamp of M. Night Shyamalan, has released two small teasers that are a bit gloomy and do not reveal much about the series but show the style of the director. The actors who star in it are Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, Rupert Grint and Nell Tiger and it is about a couple in Philadelphia who are going through a crisis due to a tragedy and about a presence that will invade their home.

On the other hand there is ‘Truth Be Told’ with Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul . This thriller, about real crime, follows Spencer, who will give life to a podcaster who reopens the murder investigation that brought her fame after new evidence appeared that could change the course of events.

Apple TV+ will be available on November 1st in the vast majority of markets in which the company has a presence. The price of the subscription will be 4.99 euros per month, with access to a 7-day trial period. The content will be offered in 4K HDR, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, although it will be free for a whole year if one of Apple’s devices is purchased.
