Russian-language broadcasts will likely head to Apple TV +, because Variety reports that Apple has signed a first deal with AR Content, a production company run by Ukrainian and Russian producer and director Alexander Rodnyansky.

The deal would give Apple the opportunity to secure Russian-language and multilingual broadcasts for Apple TV +, taking place both in Russia and abroad, with Russian and international screenwriters and directors.

“Apple is extremely interested in exploring the possibilities in this part of the world,” said Rodnyansky, who received Oscar nominations for the 2014 film “Leviathan” and the 2017 film “Loveless”. “This will be the very first of all global streaming platforms to sign a strategic partnership with a company of Russian origin.”

Apple TV + is gradually expanding its non-English content. The Israeli spy thriller “Tehran” has mostly Hebrew dialogue, and last month Apple gave the green light to the contemporary thriller “Liaison” as its first French-language series.
