  • Olivier Martinez will reportedly star opposite May Rudolph in a new Apple TV+ comedy.
  • The new show doesn't yet have a name but it will reportedly run as 30-minute episodes.

A new report has Olivier Martinez set to join Maya Rudolph on an unnamed Apple TV+ comedy. The show will feature half-hour episodes and is from Emmy winners Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard.

According to a Deadline report, the show will center on a woman whose husband leaves here "with nothing but $87 billion." The horror of it!

Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful) is set for a heavily recurring role opposite Maya Rudolph in Apple's untitled half-hour comedy series from Emmy winners Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard. Created and written by Yang and Hubbard, the series follows Molly (Rudolph), a woman whose seemingly perfect life is upended after her husband leaves her with nothing but $87 billion. Martinez will play Jean Pierre, a handsome, charismatic, romantic billionaire. Jean-Pierre comes from a philanthropic, old money family in France and wants his family's charitable foundation to collaborate with Molly. Although he intends to keep it strictly business, there is an undeniable connection between Jean-Pierre and Molly. MJ Rodriguez also stars.

Given the fact this show doesn't yet have a name and it's still picking up talent, it's fair to say that it will be a little while before it lands on our screens. The plot is enough to whet the appetite regardless, so I know I'm already looking forward to taking this in when it's available to stream.
