An Apple TV + series about Gawker is said to be in the early stages of development. The scripts and the idea are said to have been developed by former employees on the legendary news and gossip site (via Vanity Fair)
Former Gawker staff working on Apple TV + Series
The two former employees who led the project are Max Read and Cord Jefferson. Read is a former website editor and Jefferson was also a writer and editor. The couple have worked together in recent weeks with a writers room, where other former employees are also present. The retail property was sold during an auction in 2018, but a refund was requested. However, in today’s media and business environment, it seems that the most likely way to see Gawker rise again is on Apple TV +.
