Michael Douglas’s Franklin Series (2024) On Apple TV Plus

Apple TV+ released a historical drama series based on the life of Benjamin Franklin.


Franklin is a mini-series based on Benjamin Franklin’s life. The series has 8 episodes and is currently streaming on Apple TV+. Directed by Tim Van Patten of Boardwalk Empire fame, the series is based on Stacy Schiff’s book “A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France, and the Birth of America.” which follows Benjamin Franklin’s 1776 journey to France.

Apple TV’s Franklin stars Michael Douglas, Noah Jupe, Ludivine Sagnier, Daniel Mays, and Eddie Marsan. The entire series was filmed in France. The series premiered at the Cannes International Series Festival (CANNESERIES) on April 11, 2024.


Apple TV+’s new historical drama “Franklin” fails to impress the audiences. Despite the staggering performances of Oscar-winner Michael Douglas as Benjamin Franklin, the series has no narrative flow and historical details.
