The tech giant has handed out an eight-episode order to the series which hails from The Big Sick duo Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily V Gordon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project is written and executive-produced by Nanjiani and Gordon along with Lee Eisenberg, who will be serving as the showrunner on the series. Joshuah Bearman and Joshua Davis will executive produce the series for the magazine, with Arthur Spector as co-executive producer.

According to deadline.com, the project was initially taken up by Apple in February to develop for straight-to-series consideration. This show will be joining Are You Sleeping, starring Octavia Spencer, in the to-go-series format under the tech giant. Other series in pipeline include a Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston-starrer and a comedy featuring Hailee Steinfeld playing poet Emily Dickinson, according to tvline.com

Inspired by the true stories featured in Epic magazine, the series will go beyond the headlines to look at the funny, romantic, heartfelt, inspiring and surprising stories of immigrants in America, when they are more relevant now than ever.
