Apple has been snatching up hot projects for its upcoming streaming service left and right, and now, it's secured the most prolific director of the "Fast and Furious" franchise.

Justin Lin and his production company, Perfect Storm, have inked an exclusive overall TV contract with Apple, for which they will develop and produce new series. No projects have been announced just yet.

Lin has made a name for himself producing and directing a slew of slick action flicks and TV series, including "Star Trek Beyond" and multiple CBS series like "S.W.A.T.," "Scorpion," and the new "Magnum P.I." But the director is perhaps most famous for his work on the "Fast" series, of which he's helmed four films so far, is currently prepping shooting "Fast and Furious 9," and is rumored to also be directing the final film in the franchise, "Fast and Furious 10."

With such a successful track record, it would make sense for Apple to scoop him up, adding yet another titan of his genre to its fold. The burgeoning streaming service has already secured a bunch of A-list drama series, as well as fantasy, crime, comedy, horror, and Oprah (yes, she deserves her own category) shows, too.

Stay tuned to see what Lin and co. (and Apple) are working on.
