Earlier this month, we introduced you to Thailand-based Apple Model Management, which just opened America's first transgender modeling agency, right here in LA. While Apple has yet to reveal its recently discovered local talent, they have expressed interest in entering the Hollywood scene.
The agency's website currently states:
Apple has recently been making headlines for the opening of its LA Branch and various proposals to launch a reality TV series about its Branch office Transgender division. No final decision has been made as to the organisation of the Branch Office, its management or a single production company to take the lead in the project. Apple has not made any contractual commitments or appointed any contractual agents. As of the beginning of August 2015 no production house or management candidates have met with Apple at its head offices to pitch a formal proposal. Media platform expertise, reputation and track record are of course pre-requisites, however production houses who are financial stakeholders or who arrange finance will be the front runners to lead this cutting edge, social interest project. Production houses, Executive Producers, eccentric humanitarian luminaries are all encouraged to take up the challenge to enlighten society's social awareness of a lesser know aspect human identity. Proposals to be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
In other words, they're down if the price is right. Any takers?
