(Theif you, like me, want more.) But plenty of other Apple TV Plus shows and movies make brief appearances. Some of them haven’t been released yet, but others are available to watch now. It’s kind of a blend of everything Apple has.
The preview includes bits from The Morning Show, See, Defending Jacob, Dickinson and The Mosquito Coast. New shows that get a look include Lisey’s Story (based on the Stephen King novel) and Schmigadoon!, a parody of the musical Brigadoon! starring Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key.

There’s a peek at the movie Coda, about a teenager (played by Emilia Jones) who is the only hearing member of her family. The preview also includes glimpses at some content that’s already on Apple TV Plus, like Tom Hanks’ World War II film Greyhound, and the documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry.
