Apple TV+’s Dear… connects celebrities and the people whose lives they inspired. Be sure to have tissues handy, because each story will touch your heart.
We all have that person, or people, that have inspired us. I know I do. The new series Dear… coming to Apple TV+ is all about that. It connects normal people like you and me, with those that have inspired them. Inspired them to be themselves, to help others, to stand up against something, and so much more.
Apple TV+’s Dear… is a docuseries that is full of inspiration and power. Each episode features one celebrity. During the episode we not only hear their stories, but we hear the stories a handful of people that have written to them. When I tell you that every episode touched my heart and had me become a sobbing mess, I am not exaggerating.
I am a big fan of binge watching, but for my own sanity, Dear… is not a show I could do that for. I could only watch two, maybe three episodes in a row at a time. Why? Because I would have run out of tears if I tried to watch all ten one after another. This series is one that everyone — and I mean everyone — should watch. I truly think that we will be able to understand each other better.
The following episodes are in season one of Dear… on Apple TV+.
- Spike Lee
- Lin-Manuel Miranda
- Stevie Wonder
- Oprah Winfrey
- Gloria Steinem
- Big Bird
- Jane Goodall
- Aly Raisman
- Yara Shahidi
- Misty Copeland
Each and every one of these episodes is special in their own way. And each one touched me — right in my heart. I couldn’t choose a favorite if I tried, but the Lin-Manuel episode and the Oprah episode made me cry the most.
I also really, really enjoyed the Big Bird one because.. well… Big Bird had a lot of influence on me when I was a little girl. And my kids now. So that one was special. Well, like I said, every single one of them made me tear up, at a minimum.
One person’s story can change the world. From Emmy-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler, this ten-part docuseries profiles game-changing icons and the people whose lives they’ve inspired.
