Apple TV+ has reportedly signed Academy Award-nominated producer and director Alexander Rodnyansky for both Russian and multi-language shows based inside and outside of Russia.

According to a Variety report, Rodnyansky’s experience within Russia is the key reason Apple has signed a deal with his LA-based firm AR Content.

“Apple is extremely interested to explore the possibilities in that part of the world. It’s going to be the very first of all the global streaming platforms to sign a strategic partnership with a company with Russian roots,” he said.

The director and producer went on to say that his team will be working with the best of the best in terms of international writers and directors to make Russian-speaking content in the same way Hebrew and Arabic content has been popular in recent years.

“This is an amazing time when you have ‘Fauda’ in Hebrew and Arabic doing really well across multiple territories, when you have French-speaking shows like ‘La Mante’ or ‘Marianne,’ or German shows like ‘Dark’ or ‘Babylon Berlin’ crossing borders,” said Rodnyansky. “This is a time for Russian-speaking shows to do the same, or multilingual shows. That’s why we are developing new shows with the best international writers and directors, and at the same time trying to keep our positions within movies.”

There’s currently no timeline on when we should see the fruits of this deal, but there is no shortage of new content coming to Apple TV+ while we wait. New deals are seemingly being signed weekly with new content arriving all the time.
