Apple TV+ announced today “The Big Cigar,” a new six-episode limited series based on the eponymous magazine article from Joshuah Bearman. “The Big Cigar” tells the extraordinary, hilarious, almost-too-good-to-be-true story of how Newton relied on his best friend, Bert Schneider, the Hollywood producer behind “Easy Rider,” to elude a nationwide manhunt and escape to Cuba while being pursued into exile by the FBI.
