Jennifer Aniston Is Making a TV Comeback with Reese Witherspoon

Apple doubles down on TV efforts, acquires drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon

Aniston takes first TV role since Friends with 'sister'

Apple has ordered two seasons of a drama about the world of network morning television that will star Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, both of whom will also executive produce.

The show will look into the lives of morning news anchors, the women, and men who wake America up every morning with the news of the day.

House of Cards' Jay Carson will write and executive produce the series, which reunites Aniston and Witherspoon 17 years after they shared the small screen on Friends (Witherspoon played one of Rachel's sisters).

Of course, romantic-comedy darling Reese Witherspoon has already found some great success on TV recently when she received an Emmy Nomination for her work on the hit limited series Big Little Lies.

This isn't the first time the pair has worked together.

The untitled drama comes from Michael Ellenberg's Media Res Studio, along with Aniston's Echo Films and Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine.

"Amazing Stories" hails from Universal Television and Amblin Television. The series was highly sought after when it was announced, and Apple won the bid, signing on for two 10-episode seasons. The Amazing Stories anthology is execu produced by Spielberg in partnership with Bryan Fuller, who serves as showrunner.

What remains to be seen, however, is just how Apple will roll out its original scripted series and if it could utilize its streaming music service to do so and if the company - with $260 billion in cash surplus - will turn assets like iPhones to market its programming.

The show will mark not only Aniston's first TV role since starring as Rachel Green in the U.S. sitcom Friends, but also the first time the two actresses have worked together since the show.
