Just 10 months after leaving HBO, Plepler has started his own production company, Eden Productions, and signed a five-year agreement with AppleTV+, according to a report from The New York Times on Thursday.
The company will make television series, documentaries and films for the streaming service, which started in November, according to the Times.
Plepler left HBO in February after 27 years, several months after AT&T took over Time Warner and they together became WarnerMedia.
“It was instantaneously clear to me that I had a wonderful and very privileged run at HBO and I wasn’t going to be able to duplicate that again,” Plepler told The Times. “And I didn’t want to try to duplicate that again. It felt very clear to me that I just wanted to do my own thing.”
Plepler’s deal with AppleTV+ had been rumored back in November, according to a previous report from FOX Business.
AppleTV+’s new content from Plepler will go alongside its current content -- four television shows "The Morning Show," "See," "Dickinson" and "For All Mankind" -- which has received mixed reviews.
