Forget Apple is growing its slate of original series by bringing on M. Night Shyamalan ("Sixth Sense," "Signs") to produce a new 10-episode psychological thriller.--
Apple confirmed that Shyamalan will serve as executive producer for the series and direct the first 30-minute episode. This will be Shyamalan's second time producing a series. His show "Wayward Pines" ended after two seasons.

The company is also making a half-hour comedy series about a morning show which stars Kristen Wiig, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. And there's "Little America," an anthology series about immigrants produced by Kumail Nanjiana, Emily V. Gordon and Lee Eisenberg.
