WSJ: Apple wants to lease a 'large production campus' in LA

What you need to know

  • Apple is reportedly on the hunt for new filming space in Los Angeles.
  • The space will likely be used for Apple TV+ filming including TV shows and movies.

The facility Apple wants will "exceed half a million square feet."

Apple is on the hunt for a "large production campus" in Los Angeles, according to a new report. It's thought the facility will be used to create new Apple TV+ content including TV shows and movies.

According to a new Wall Street Journal report, Apple has told development execs that it needs a space that will "exceed half a million square feet." Multiple different locations are being considered, according to people "familiar with the matter."

Apple told development executives it is looking at several possible locations, the people said. The new hub could exceed half a million square feet and would complement Apple's current arrangement, where the company leases soundstages to film in the Los Angeles area and other parts of the world.

Apple continues to work to increase its presence in the world of TV and movies and is already in possession of some hits including the hugely popular Ted Lasso. Apple being able to film more content is good for customers as well — because it means we will have more stuff to watch!

Some Apple TV+ content has already been able to pick up multiple awards and countless more nominations have been received, but a focus on creating more content means that Apple isn't resting on its laurels.

Apple TV+ currently runs $4.99 per month and is also part of the Apple One subscription bundle, too.
