The first video streaming platform to be awarded an Oscar for best film, Apple TV+ remains faithful to its course of action which ended up leading it to success, despite a difficult start.

Each month, the apple brand adds new content, less numerous than that of Netflix, Disney + or Amazon Prime Video, but which has the merit of being very largely original and filled with stars. The 5* cast has become the hallmark of Apple TV+.

And the month of May does not cut it with the arrivals of Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Moss or even the return of the Tehran series. If you missed them, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jared Letho, Anne Hathaway or Magic Johnson have recently appeared.

The most famous number 32 of the Los Angeles Lakers is the central subject of a 4-episode documentary that looks back on his youth, his family and his NBA career. Earvin Johnson, better known as Magic Johnson, carried his broad smile on and off the court, making him one of the biggest stars of the 1980s, along with Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, his great rival. A career stopped dead in 1991 at the age of 32 and the announcement of his HIV status. A good addition to the excellent series Winning Time on OCS.
