There are no details of how much Apple TV+ paid for the project, nor even of which other streamers may have been bidding. But it is now the latest Apple collaboration with actor/producer Reese Witherspoon, as Deadline reports the rights were acquired in competition.

"Maybe Next Time" is a time-loop novel by Cesca Major, following a woman who tries to keep her family together as she goes through the same tumultuous day over and over again.

Major will be an executive producer, but there is no news yet of who the screenwriter or director may be.

Apple TV+ has worked with Witherspoon before as an actor on "The Morning Show," and as a producer on such shows as "Surface." Apple even expressed interest in buying her production company, Hello Sunshine.

    You get that from a one line premise?  The turkey here is your opinion.

    Yeah, it is. I've seen the reviews of the book, Very briefly summarized as "A story of mindfulness and joy in the small routines of love and family. A harried London woman lives the same day over and over again, with her husband always dying at 10:17 pm."

    I'm sure it's just full to the mindful, tearful brim with Feels.

    So?  Groundhog Day was just 12:01, Comedy Weatherman Edition.  And 12:01 was just Le 15 Mai, Bleak Science Edition.

    Your opinion is just Lkrupp Openly Misogynist Edition.
