Alfonso Cuarón, the award-winning director/writer behind Roma, Gravity, Children of Men, and more, has just signed a multi-year deal with Apple.

As part for the deal, Cuarón will create TV projects exclusively for Apple's soon-to-launch video streaming service, Apple TV+.

According to reports, Cuarón was courted by multiple outlets but Apple eventually won out.

The deal is a big win for Apple, who reportedly wants its streaming service to compete for Oscars.

It's significant also because Apple lost out on J.J Abrams, who signed an exclusive deal with WarnerMedia.

Cuarón directed and wrote Roma for Netflix last year and it was a critical hit, earning 10 Oscar nominations and winning three in the process — Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Cinematography. It also won two Golden Globes and a host of other accolades.

Cuarón also won multiple Oscars for the science-fiction thriller Gravity in 2013

Apple TV+ launches on 1st November and is priced at S$6.98. It will come with a free one-week trial.

Also, customers who purchase any iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch or Mac now will get 1 year of Apple TV+ for free.
