Reese Witherspoon & Jennifer Aniston's New TV Drama Snapped Up by Apple

Reese Witherspoon & Jennifer Aniston's New TV Drama Snapped Up by Apple”

Mere months after announcing they would be getting into original content, Apple Inc. has landed a deal for an expensive new series starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. The project was given a two-season straight-to-series order.

According to USA media, several broadcasters were engaged in a bidding war for the as-yet unnamed project - a drama that will offer a peek into the lives of American television's morning presenters. House of Cards producer and political consultant Jay Carson will serve as writer, executive producer and showrunner.

The series has been described by Apple as "an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual".

The morning show series, which will produce 10 episodes a season, comes from studio Media Res, with founder Michael Ellenberg also executive producing.

The spokesperson said November 8 that Apple had given the go-ahead for two seasons totaling 20 episodes - a rarity in the world of television series production, and the latest hint at the California tech giant's content production ambitions.

The drama marks the return to TV for former Friends star Aniston, while Reese scored a bit hit with HBO drama Big Little Lies earlier this year (17).

This is the second series ordered by Apple, after Steven Spielberg's reboot of his 1980s anthology series Amazing Stories was announced.

The series is based on Brian Stelter's Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV and will explore - you guessed it - the behind-the-scenes goings-on at a morning television show.
