First Look At Jennifer Aniston And Reese Witherspoon's New TV Show

First Look At Jennifer Aniston And Reese Witherspoon's New TV Show

If you loved watching Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon playing sisters on Friends, we've got great news for you: the actresses will executive produce and co-star in a new series entitled The Morning Show.

The drama, which takes a look at the behind-the-scenes happenings on a morning talk show, will be released this autumn on Apple's new streaming service, Apple TV+.

Starring alongside Jennifer and Reese will be The Office star Steve Carell, and other members of the cast include Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup and Néstor Carbonell.

The series has been written by Bates Motel co-creator Kerry Ehrin, and has already been commissioned for 20 episodes spread across two seasons before it's even been released.

The show will, according to the Hollywood Reporter, provide "an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual."

Originally conceived as a sitcom, as the development process went on, the tone changed considerably and the whole concept was then altered significantly to become a drama.

At Apple's television launch event yesterday, the trio - Reese, Jennifer and Steve - appeared to promote their new show, and presented a trailer that showcased not just sneak peeks from their own show, but other shows from upcoming Apple TV+ series such as Dear, For All Mankind, See and Home Before Dark.

Talking about the new show, Jennifer said: "Through the prism of those under-slept, over-adrenalised people in front of and behind the camera, we take an honest look at the complex relationships between women and men in the workplace, and we engage in the conversation people are a little too afraid to have unless they're behind closed doors.

"You can't have an honest look at complex relationships between men and women with just women."

Reese said that the series is "seen through the eyes of two ambitious, aspirational female characters", and added that the show would be a "high-velocity thrill ride in which we pose questions without easy answers and shine a light on the fault lines in our society at this very complicated cultural moment".

The Morning Show will debut on Apple TV+ this autumn.
