Apple TV+ has announced a new trailer for The Big Cigar, a new upcoming limited series that will see André Holland star as Black Panther leader Huey P. Newton. The show will also star Alessandro Nivola, Tiffany Boone, P. J. Byrne, Marc Menchaca, Moses Ingram, Rebecca Dalton, Olli Haaskivi, Jordane Christie and Glynn Turman.

The Big Cigar will make its global debut on May 17 with the first two episodes made available to stream on Apple TV+ around the globe. From there, viewers can expect new episodes to be made available every Friday through to the season's conclusion on June 14.

The six-episode show is based on the magazine article of the same name by Joshuah Bearman who also happens to serve as the show's executive producer. The show tells the true story of what Apple calls Hollywood revolution meeting social revolution. It tells the story of Black Panther founder Huey P. Newton escaping from the FBI to Cuba with the assistance of famed producer Bert Schneider. Amazingly, the whole plan involved a fake movie production and the escapade did not go according to plan. In fact, Apple says, it went wrong in every way that it possibly could.

If that sounds like something for you, you're going to need an Apple TV+ subscription. They're available for free for three months when you buy a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, or iPod touch but everyone else can pick a subscription up for $9.99 per month. The Apple TV+ subscription is also available as part of the Apple One subscription bundle that also includes other services such as Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and Apple Fitness+.

Watching Apple TV+ is easy, with the Apple TV app available on iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple TVs, and the Apple Vision Pro. There's also a web player via the Apple TV website, but that isn't all. Apple also offers Apple TV apps as free downloads on a whole range of devices including streaming sticks from various companies. Many smart TVs also have Apple TV apps while game consoles like the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X all also have Apple TV apps available for download via their respective software stores. At this point, if you own something either with a screen or the ability to be connected to one, there is a very good chance that you already have access to the Apple TV app whether or not you know it.
