The Morning Show stars Academy Award-winner Reese Witherspoon, Emmy Award-winner Jennifer Aniston and Emmy Award-winner Steve Carell in a high-stakes drama that pulls back the curtain on early morning TV.
The Morning Show will be available to stream this fall on Apple TV+ when Apple's new streaming platform is slated to launch. It's been given a two-season order by Apple, with "Bates Motel" co-creator Kerry Ehrin serving as showrunner and Mimi Leder (known for episodes of HBO's "The Leftovers") directing. The footage features series stars Jennifer Aniston, 50, Reese Witherspoon, 43, and Steve Carell, 56, in voiceovers.
"Through the prism of those under-slept, over-adrenalized 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", Aniston said. "I am bringing you some sad and upsetting news". As the camera pushes into the control room, Witherspoon says, "I think they want to know the person behind the facade". It also marks Aniston's return to television for the first time in 15 years since starring in one of the main roles on the hit NBC sitcom Friends, with the actress also choosing to focus on film roles.
The series has been billed as a dramedy centered that will "shine a light on current issues", according to Witherspoon, who is executive producing the series.
"[I am] so excited", Witherspoon said in 2017 about developing the show with Aniston.
The brand new series is set to debut this fall, only on Apple TV+.
