  • Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman will get around $1 million an episode for season two as the tech giant as one agent says

Witherspoon's salary for season two of the hit HBO series is tripling, as is Nicole Kidman's (who won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance). Kristen Wiig is not only going to be starring in the show, but will also be an executive producer.

The Echo ($179) is the standard unit, while the Dot ($89) has all the smarts but no speaker and is created to be connected to one. Westpac also has a financial markets news product allowing you to ask Alexa for the headlines.

The stars are all making big bucks.

The Wiig-starring show is Apple's third series with Witherspoon, alongside a now untitled morning show drama also starring Jennifer Aniston and a true crime podcast with Octavia Spencer.

The 50-year-old Big Little Lies star was spotted on set in full costume on Wednesday (January 17) in Los Angeles. It's been reported that the actress received upward of $1.25 million per episode in Apple's untitled drama, which could've influenced her deal with HBO.

Casino shuttle boat engulfed by flames, dozens safely escape; 1 dead
In 2004, the NTSB investigated a fire aboard another Port Richey casino shuttle owned by Suncruz called the Express Shuttle II. Chief DeCanio said the captain nearly ran the boat aground as he tried to get close to the shore. "The fire was moving fast".

This project joins two other projects at Apple from Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine.

"It's not a shock to anybody that having a second season of an ongoing series is easier to have with those deals in place", HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in the THR article. Apple has clearly established a pattern of signing shows with big names behind them and this newest addition to its lineup is no different. Apple's step into the world of prestige TV further cements the fact that networks and streaming services will have to pay a lot more for big stars to grace the small screen.
