Two new spring series, “Palm Royale” on Apple TV+ and “Apples Never Fall” on Peacock, take viewers to Palm Beach, Fla., but showcase two very different aesthetic worlds.

“Palm Royale,” the Kristen Wiig-led series on Apple TV+, dives into Palm Beach circa 1969, showcasing its stark social divide.

“The show really portrayed this upper echelon of women in Palm Beach. But at the same time, we were also portraying the other side of the bridge,” says show production designer Jon Carlos. The team traced the town dynamic to the opening of the Breakers in 1894, at the time the world’s largest resort. The working class — builders and hotel support staff — congregated in West Palm Beach, while the upper society were rooted in Palm Beach proper.
