Apple is taking app development to a whole new media for increased visibility – television!
Executive producers will.i.am, Ben Silverman and Howard Owens are teaming up for an unscripted series about the world of apps and the talented people that drive its innovation. They’re looking for developers to be on the show with the vision to shape the future, solve real problems, and inspire change within our daily lives. “We can really tell their stories as we explore how apps are developed and created and incubated,” says Silverman.
‘Planet of the Apps’ isn’t just a show, it’s a launch pad and accelerator for exceptional developers. Those accepted will have a chance to receive:
- Mentorship: Hands-on guidance from some of the world’s best experts in tech and entertainment
- Funding: Those who make it to the final round will meet with top-tier VCs investing from up to $10M over the course of the season
- Marketing and Promotion: Featured placement in the App Store at the end of the show. Also, the potential to reach millions of viewers around the world on Apple platforms.
Participation in the show is limited to 100 of the world’s most talented app creators. If that’s you, apply HERE.
Applications are being accepted thru Friday, August 26th. To apply, you must agree to have an iOS, macOS, tvOS, or watchOS app in a beta or functional state by October 21, so you can show us what you’ve built.
The inaugural season will take place in Los Angeles and film over a non-consecutive period from late 2016 to early 2017. If you are not able to take off work during this period, please do not apply. For more information, visit FAQ.
