Timberlake stars as Eddie Palmer who, after serving a prison sentence, returns to his hometown. There, the eponymous football star must deal with "lingering conflicts from his past but also a much more surprising challenge as he finds himself suddenly in charge of a unique young boy who has been abandoned by his wayward mother," according to Apple. Other "Palmer" stars include Academy Award nominee June Squibb, Alisha Wainright, and Juno Temple.

Other recent deals for Apple TV+ include "Snow Blind," with Jake Gyllenhaal, "Killers of the Flower Moon" starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, "Emancipation" starring and produced by Academy Award nominee Will Smith, "Sharper" starring and produced by Academy Award winner Julianne Moore, "The Sky is Everywhere," and "On the Rocks" starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones. Tom Hanks film "Greyhound" debuted recently, and reportedly drew traffic similar to a "summer box office smash."

"Palmer" is produced by Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, Charlie Corwin, Daniel Nadler and Academy Award-winning producer Charles B. Wessler. The film is executive produced by Terry Dougas, Jean-Luc De Fanti, Mark O'Connor, Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis and Bruce Toll. The film is an SK Global, Rhea Films and Nadler No GMO Popcorn Co. project, in association with the Hercules Film Fund.

The terms of the deal are not known.

    With the onslaught of feature films planned to premier on the service, I'm starting to think that maybe naming the service Apple TV+ is not the best idea.
    Leave the device as Apple TV and call the service Apple Video or something else that encompasses all forms of video content..

    You're just making a big fuss over something quite clear. AppleTV is the box, where you can download AppleTV apps, including the AppleTV app. Within which, after much hunting and discovering that most of the shows there require a purchase, you'll find the AppleTV+ channel where you can watch AppleTV+ TV shows. And movies. You'll also find an app named TV with an AppleTV icon on the Mac, iPhone and iPad which has AppleTV+ available inside. See? It's simple. ;)

    I wish the TV App was simple. It mixes everything together.

    Don't forget that you can find the files on your Mac under ~/Movies/TV/Media/Movies and ~/Movies/TV/Media/TV.
