This just in: Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are going to appear on a morning news show together!
Well, sort of. The award-winning actresses are actually starring in Apple’s upcoming original series, The Morning Show. The fictional drama (which is probably as close as we’ll get to a real talk show hosted by Reese and Jennifer) has generated a lot of buzz since it first began filming last fall. Now, it’s finally coming to the small screen.
Here’s everything you need to know about The Morning Show.
Who is in “The Morning Show” cast?
The Morning Show will be lead by Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell. The star-studded cast also includes Billy Crudup, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Bel Powley, Karen Pittman, and Desean Terry. Reese, Jennifer, and Steve are rumored to play co-anchors on a daily news show, but the roles of the other actors in the series have not yet been revealed.
What is ‘The Morning Show’ about?
The plot of The Morning Show has been described as an inside look at the lives of the people who greet America on their television screens each morning. It aims to give a glimpse at what happens behind the camera of your favorite shows and explore the power dynamics present in the televised news industry today.
“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 are behind closed doors,” Jennifer said at The Morning Show‘s 2019 media preview event in March.
Reese described the series as 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.”
Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV will also offer additional insight to the series.
Is there a trailer yet?
Yes! But aside from shots of the set and photos of the stars, the first trailer doesn’t show much. However, dramatic voiceovers by Steve, Reese, and Jennifer offer a bit more into how the series will “pull back the curtain on early morning TV.”
When does “The Morning Show” premiere?
There is no official release date for The Morning Show, but the series is set to premiere sometime in fall 2019.
How can I watch?
The Morning Show will be exclusively available to stream on Apple TV+. The new video subscription service—which will launch on the Apple TV app this fall—will feature a mix of original series, movies, and documentaries.
