Apple TV+ series The Afterparty was one of the top-10 most-streamed shows in its opening week, according to new figures from Reelgood.

The new Apple TV+ show tells the story of a murder that takes place at a high school reunion. From Apple:
Created and directed by Miller, “The Afterparty” centers on a murder mystery at a high school reunion. Each of the eight episodes features a retelling of the same night told through a different character’s perspective, each with its own unique visual style and film genre to match the teller’s personality.
Apple describes the series as “genre-bending” and boasts a star-studded cast.
Apple continues to invest in its slate of original content for TV+, debuting a new trailer for season two of Tehran and the first look at Lincoln’s Dilemma, a four-part series that looks at Abraham Lincoln’s journey to end slavery:
Based on acclaimed historian David S. Reynolds’ award-winning book, “Abe: Abraham Lincoln in His Times,” the series features insights from a diverse range of journalists, educators and Lincoln scholars, as well as rare archival materials, that offer a more nuanced look into the man dubbed the Great Emancipator. Set against the background of the Civil War, “Lincoln’s Dilemma” also gives voice to the narratives of enslaved people, shaping a more complete view of an America divided over issues including economy, race and humanity, and underscoring Lincoln’s battle to save the country, no matter the cost.
