Coming Soon to Apple TV+

The Pigeon Tunnel, Errol (The Fog of War) Morris’ movie-length documentary about spy novelist John le Carré’s days as British spy David Cornwell, will stream on Apple TV+ from October 20.

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the Cold War, it spans six decades and features le Carré’s final and most candid interview, complete with rare archival footage and dramatised vignettes. Reads the blurb:

Drawing on le Carré’s New York Times bestselling memoir The Pigeon Tunnel: Stories from My Life, the film is an unprecedented voyage into the lesser-known parts of the iconic and historically private author’s formative experiences, set to an original score by Philip Glass in collaboration with Paul Leonard-Morgan.

According to le Carré’s sons, producers Simon and Stephen Cornwell, co-CEOs and co-founders at The Ink Factory (The Night Manager):

Full of deep insight, and surprising, amusing and often profoundly moving anecdotes, The Pigeon Tunnel charts a conversation between two great minds, both consummate storytellers; one who wove extraordinary fiction from the events he experienced; the other whose interrogation of those events has led so often to a greater truth.

Together, they explore the events of the Cold War, and of le Carré’s life, testing the boundaries of truth, memory and imagination.

The layered and unorthodox film is a tête-à-tête between a filmmaker and a novelist – both masters of their craft – grappling with the roots of the creative process, the power of fiction and our responsibility to the truth.

A four-part true-crime documentary series about CEO-turned-fugitive Carlos Ghosn will stream from August 25 on Apple TV+.

Wanted: The Escape of Carlos Ghosn chronicles his his relentless climb to the top of the corporate ladder, shocking arrest, and unbelievable escape that stunned the world.

It includes never-before-seen interviews and footage with the prime players who lived in the Ghosn orbit, his rise to corporate power in Japan, his several arrests and the details of his harrowing escape to Lebanon.

Inspired by the  book “Boundless,” by The Wall Street Journal reporters Nick Kostov and Sean McLain, the series promises “unparalleled access to the key figures involved in the saga, including Ghosn and Mike Taylor, the former Green Beret who orchestrated his escape.

Apple TV+ also has unveiled the trailer for the new 10-episode adult animated series Strange Planet, which debuts with three episodes on  August 9.

Based on the New York Times #1 bestselling graphic novel and social media phenomenon of the same name, Strange Planet is billed as “a hilarious and perceptive look at a distant world not unlike our own”.
