Apple Orders ‘The Big Door Prize’ TV Adaptation From ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Producer David West Read

“Schitt’s Creek” Emmy Award-winning producer David West Read will adapt M.O. Walsh’s novel “The Big Door Prize” for the silver screen. Apple announced the series order, a 10-episode half-hour comedy that hails from Skydance Television, on Friday.

“The Big Door Prize” tells the story about the residents of a small town called Deerfield, who one day discover a magical, destiny predicting machine in their grocery store.

The project is being produced by Skydance Television and CJ ENM/Studio Dragon, the same company behind Bong Joon-ho’s Academy Award-winning film “Parasite.” Showrunner Read will also executive produce alongside Miky Lee and Hyun Park of CJ ENM/Studio Dragon and David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost of Skydance Television.

“The Big Door Prize” is the second Apple Original from Skydance Television, following the upcoming drama series “Foundation.” Based on the novel series of the same name by Isaac Asimov, the science-fiction show is produced by David S. Goyer and stars Jared Harris, Lee Pace, Lou Llobell, Leah Harvey, Laura Birn, Cassian Bilton and Terrence Mann, among others. “Foundation” is slated for a global premiere this fall.
