Apple has hired two of the TV executives behind the hit series 'Breaking Bad', hinting that it plans to expand its roster of original TV shows.

The executives in question are Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg, both previously of Sony Pictures Television.

The pair will take on "newly created positions overseeing all aspects of video programming," according to Apple. Their CVs include work on 'Breaking Bad', 'Better Call Saul', 'The Crown' and 'Rescue Me', among others.

In all, the pair's shows have won 36 Emmys and dozens of Golden Globes.

"Jamie and Zack are two of the most talented TV executives in the world and have been instrumental in making this the golden age of television," said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, and the duo's new boss. "We have exciting plans in store for customers and can't wait for them to bring their expertise to Apple – there is much more to come."

Apple's original shows include 'Planet of the Apps' – which debuted recently – and 'Carpool Karaoke', which will air in August. Both are exclusive to the Apple Music streaming service.
