An open casting call is underway for Planet of the Apps, Apple’s reality series about the world of apps and the developers who create them. The series, a co-production with Propagate, is looking for talented app creators and is accepting online applications now through Friday, August 26. Those interested in applying can go to the series website here.
Executive produced by Will.I,Am, Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens, the series is teaming up with Product Hunt on a four city tour in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and New York. The events will be an opportunity to meet other tech entrepreneurs and hear from the team behind the series. Dates will be released on the Planet of the Apps website shortly.
“Over 2 million apps are available on the App Store, with new apps published every day,” said Silverman and Owens, Co-CEOs of Propagate. “Planet of the Apps will give app creators the chance to break through and share their ideas with the world. This is an exciting format that taps into what is driving culture today. We can’t wait to see the groundbreaking ideas accepted for the show grow into viable businesses.”
Propagate’s unscripted development slate includes Lore, based on the hit podcast and co-produced with Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Entertainment; Unprotected for Oxygen; Evil Genius for History; My So-Called Simple Life (working title) for FYI; a docu-series for Vivica A. Fox; and Animal ER for National Geographic Wild.
