Jennifer Aniston is making her return to TV as a frustrated journalist in The Morning Show, as the trailer gives fans a glimpse of what to expect.
The Friends favourite, 50, hasn’t starred in a TV series since 2012’s Burning Love, where she made a brief appearance, so fans were rightly excited at the prospect of seeing her back on their screens.
Jen will be joining Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon in the new comedy drama, which sees the three lead characters fight to stay relevant in the ever-changing landscape of the media.
Steve and Jen’s characters – Mitch and Karen Kessler – are a couple as well as being co-hosts, and while none of the actors appear in the new trailer, their voices can be heard over the dramatic music.
It’s not the first time these two have acted together, however – they also started in 2003 film Bruce Almighty, in which Steve’s character was also a TV reporter.
The cast will also include Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup, Néstor Carbonell, Mark Duplass, Bel Powley, Karen Pittman and Desean Terry.
Available on Apple TV+, the series is set to drop this Autumn and has already been commissioned for two seasons before the first episode has even dropped.
The cast were on set for seven months, wrapping up filming in New York in May, and The Hollywood Reporter describes the series as: ‘an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning.’
As well as starring in the show, Jennifer and Reese also helped to produce the series, which takes inspiration from the 2013 book Top Of The Morning: Inside The Cutthroat World Of Morning TV by CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter.
Reese said at an Apple event earlier this year: ‘[The show] is seen through the eyes of two ambitious, aspirational female characters.
‘[It’s 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.’
Jennifer added: ‘Through the prism of those under-slept, over-adrenalized people in front of and behind the camera, we take an honest look at the complex relationships between women and men in the workplace.
‘We engage in the conversation people are a little too afraid to have unless they’re behind closed doors.’
