Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon tease their new Apple series The Morning Show
Apple finally lifted the curtains on its much-anticipated reunion of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, revealing the first footage from their new series on Monday.
The Friends alums appeared at Apple’s special event to introduce The Morning Show as one that would examine the “underslept, overworked people” in the world of morning news. Witherspoon said the show is a “high-velocity thrill ride in which we pose questions without easy answers and shine light…on this cultural moment.”

But, of course, as Aniston pointed out, “You can’t have an honest look at complex relationships of men and women with just women.” Cue Steve Carell, who bumbled onto stage promising to bring “the manliness” to the show, teasing that his character is: “Bold and dynamic, with a lot of gravitas, he’s a great listener and relatable and extremely handsome.”
Apple did not reveal a Morning Show trailer, but footage from the show was featured in a teaser for Apple TV+.
The Morning Show will explore the behind-the-scenes world of morning TV news and the people who help America wake up in the morning. It’ll be centered on women in power and the politics of the environment, Mimi Leder, who will direct on the series, told EW last year. Alongside Aniston, Carell also makes his return to television with this series, playing Mitch Kessler, a morning show anchor struggling to stay relevant in a fast-shifting media landscape. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup, Bel Powley, Karen Pittman, Desean Terry, and Mark Duplass will also star.
The series, which is loosely based on CNN correspondent Brian Stelter’s Top of the Morning book about the world of morning news (Stelter is a consultant for the show), is penned by Kerry Ehrin, with whom Apple has an overall content deal. Ehrin, Witherspoon and Aniston are all executive producers.
