According to Variety, Apple has inked a deal with DHX Media to produce all-new "Peanuts" content that will be exclusive to the company. While Apple has also ordered a straight-to-series show starring Jennifer Garner and executive produced by J.J. Abrams.

For Peanuts, it says it includes a short film, featuring astronaut Snoopy with the theme of STEM education, which Apple has long supported.

Both Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television will be the producers of the series.

The two new original contents Apple's well over a dozen original TV series and movies lineup, and just this past few weeks, Apple ordered a show from M. Night Shyamalan, a violent drama starring Richard Gere, and so much more.
