Apple Lands Reese Witherspoon-Jennifer Aniston Morning Show Drama


While there's no indication as to when the show will debut, Apple was confident enough in the production to pick up two seasons (20 episodes) of the yet-to-titled program.

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon's much-discussed TV show has been given a two-season, straight-to-series order.

Their episode aired in 2000. Can't wait for y'all to see what we have in store. Witherspoon played Rachel Green's younger sister on the famed NBC series back in 2000.

The series is being described as an inside look at the lives of people who help America wake up in the morning, and will explore the challenges faced by the women and men on television breakfast shows.

CNN reported that its own Brian Stelter is a consultant on the project based on his book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV (Amazon, iBooks).

The 41-year-old Oscar victor gushed: "So excited to be back and reunited with this one-of-a-kind lady!" Jennifer Aniston would return to the TV screen after nearly a decade and share screen with the versatile Resse Witherspoon, the show would be worth watching.

Last month, Apple announced it will make Amazing Stories, a revival of the Spielberg anthology show from the late 1980s.

Both actresses have gone on to star in a number of hit movies and TV shows, with Reese just coming off the success of drama "Big Little Lies", where she starred alongside Nicole Kidman. Jay Carson who is best known for his work on Netflix's House of Cards will be serving as the showrunner for the series which not only reunites Aniston and Witherspoon, but marks Aniston's first return to TV since the end of Friends in 2004.

The actress starred as Madeline Martha Mackenzie in the hit show and co-produced alongside fellow Oscar victor Nicole Kidman.
