"TV is more than just entertainment - it's cultural", said Cook in front of a packed auditorium. Abrams and Damien Chazelle talking about their craft. If you're already using Apple's service, you'll still have access to top and trending stories, as well as to your feed tailored to your interests. It was pretty cool how much they highlighted the importance of story, but ultimately pretty light on key details - including the cost of Apple TV+. Then, a slew of big name celebrities working on movies and TV shows for Apple discussed their projects. Everyone from Steven Spielberg and Reese Witherspoon to Jennifer Aniston and JJ Abraams are on board. It crams together clips from such upcoming shows as The Morning Show, See, and For All Mankind. "He has a lot of gravitas, he's a great listener, he's also relatable and extremely handsome", Carell went on.

Following the presentation of The Morning Show, the stars kept coming.
