Annie Weisman, creator, executive producer and showrunner of Apple’s upcoming dramedy series Physical, has signed an overall deal with the company. Under the sizable two-year pact, Weisman will develop television projects exclusively for Apple TV+.
Physical, starring Rose Byrne, reflects Weisman’s penchant for darkly funny stories about the often surprising inner lives of women. Set in a 1980s Southern California beach community, it follows a woman (Byrne) struggling in her life as a quietly tortured housewife who finds an unconventional path to power through an unlikely source: the world of aerobics.
Weisman hit her stride as a writer-producer on seasons 7 and 8 of ABC’s Desperate Housewives. She also served as co-executive producer on Hulu’s The Path.
