Update August 13, 2019:  Apple has released a first look at their upcoming early-morning TV drama, The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell. 

In an interesting twist, in the clip we don’t glimpse any of the stars, we just hear snippets of their voices while the camera pans around the show’s set.

While the teaser didn’t provide an air date for the show, The Hollywood Reporter noted that when Apple won a “bidding war” for the show, the company placed a straight-to-series order for two-seasons of 20 episodes, so we do know that we’ll have atleast two seasons of the show to look forward to when it does premiere.

Watch the trailer below.

October 24, 2018: Apple has officially injected themselves into the TV game, having announced they will now be producing a series of their own. And while it comes as no shock their announcement wouldn’t come without a dynamic duo to feature, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon have been brought on board for their imminent debut. 

News that Aniston and Witherspoon – who previously worked alongside one another 17 years ago when they played the role of sisters in the hit TV series, Friends – were working together on a secret filming project came to light back in July. Meanwhile, rumours emerged that Apple was gearing up behind-the-scenes to take on the likes of Netflix and Amazon by producing their own scripting series.

Turns out, piecing two and two together made for the dream partnership we can’t wait to see transpire.

While specifics pertaining to the pending show are limited, the show is said to be in part inspired by media reporter Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, and will star Steve Carell as the male lead. 

The theories thus far? It’s been suggested that Witherspoon would make for a good cutthroat morning TV anchor with Aniston playing as her co-host or contender with another network. As it would be, Aniston and Witherspoon are executive producing the show through their individual companies, co-owning the entire series with Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res company. Women in power? We approve.

While we aren’t entirely sure of what’s to come just yet, we do know that Apple has big plans for the show, having announced they’ve ordered two 10-episode seasons with filming set to begin as soon as next week.
