Apple Releases ‘The Morning Show’ Teaser

Early-morning TV is ripe for drama and that's exactly what we can expect from the new Jennifer Aniston-Reese Witherspoon series, The Morning Show. The footage features series stars Jennifer Aniston, 50, Reese Witherspoon, 43, and Steve Carell, 56, in voiceovers.

Apple today dropped the first teaser trailer for its upcoming Apple TV+ original series, The Morning Show.

Apple already ordered two seasons totaling 20 episodes.

In the solemn 1-minute clip, audiences hear sound bites from Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon, all playing employees at the titular program who work daily to wake up America with their morning news broadcast. "Guess what?" says Aniston. Judging from the tone of the trailer, The Morning Show seems to be the daytime answer to HBO's 2012 series The Newsroom, blending the powder-keg environment of a highly competitive, multi-million-dollar industry with journalistic ethics and expectations in divisive times.

"I feel like people are screaming for honest conversation", the actor - an Acton native - can be heard saying as the camera travels along darkened hallways behind the scenes at the show. "I think they want to know the person behind the anchor".


Aniston and Witherspoon have a history on the small screen: Witherspoon guest-starred on Friends as Rachel (Aniston)'s little sister Jill for two episodes during the show's sixth season.

Aniston's character, apparently the other main anchor, has her own opinions about how the broadcast should be done.

The cast also includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup and Néstor Carbonell.

The Morning Show will premiere this fall, along with the launch of Apple TV Plus.
