Why It’s Important: AppleTV+ just reported a record-breaking 52 Emmy Award nominations, its most in company history. The nominations were led by hit show “Ted Lasso” with 20 nominations and freshman show “Severance” with 14 nominations.
Apple saw a total of 13 of its shows receive at least one nomination.
With "Ted Lasso" potentially coming to an end, Apple might need to find its next big hit.
In the highly competitive streaming sector, landing an exclusive docuseries can make a big deal.
