Eddy Cue shares more 'Planet of the Apps' reality show details

Apple picked some questionable judges too.

Despite Spotify's larger subscriber base-about double Apple Music's 20 million-that's not a market where the company is prepared to compete today.

"These shows bring something to customers that they haven't been seen before", Cue said. And I think that there are more ideas like that that we have, so we hope to continue doing more.

The series will be available "in most countries in the world" as part of Apple's 18-month old subscription music offering, as will Carpool Karaoke - Apple's previously announced Late Late Show with James Corden spin-off.

Recode also notes successful apps will be prominently featured in Apple's App Store. And now, the series has a trailer originally premiered at Recode's Code Media conference and is viewable below.

In each episode, developers pitch their apps to the judges, who will then decide if they want to mentor the companies or not.

"Planet of the Apps" comes from Propagate Content, the TV studio managed by former NBC Entertainment chairman Ben Silverman and his longtime business partner, Howard Owens.

If the premise sounds familiar, that's because it's an unabashed cross between the United States primetime competition shows Shark Tank and The Voice. "I don't think it's the direction we should be going".

Recently Apple CEO Tim Cook had stated how fake news is 'killing people's minds' and it makes it important to have campaigns to educate people and work towards changing the public attitude to online news stories.

The interview shed some light on the original idea of the show.

The Cupertino tech giant just put out an open casting call for its first original TV series, dubbed Planet of the Apps.

"We have to give the consumer tools to help with this". The company just released the first teaser trailer for its new show, "Planet of the Apps", and the experience of watching it is similar to what I'd imagine being slowly lowered into a Value-Added Tax of acid feels like.

Carpool Karaoke will launch in April with Planet of the Apps due to follow in the spring.

Sound familiar? Planet of the Apps is essentially Apple's version of Shark Tank. If you have ever wanted to see Oscar victor Gwyneth Paltrow answer questions like "what's your burn rate", then this is definitely the show for you. At this point, there's no word as to when it will air and where it will broadcast, but Apple promised more details about that "in the coming weeks", so stay tuned.
