An Apple TV + series on Gawker is said to be in the early stages of development. The scripts and idea were said to have been developed by former staff members on the legendary news and gossip site (via Vanity Fair).
Former Gawker staff working on Apple TV + Series
The two former staff members who led the project are Max Read and Cord Jefferson. Mr. Read is a former editor-in-chief of the site, and Mr. Jefferson was also a writer and editor there. In recent weeks, the couple have worked alongside a writers’ room that includes other former staff members. The store estate was sold in 2018 during an auction, but it was claimed for a return. However, in today’s media and business climate, it seems that the most likely way to see the Gawker rise again is on Apple TV +.
