After releasing a teaser earlier this month, Apple has finally shared their first official trailer for their upcoming production The Morning Show.
Emmy Award-winner Jennifer Aniston, Academy Award-winner Reese Witherspoon and Golden Globe-winner Steve Carell all star as news anchors. The series depicts the inner workings of early morning TV, and, given the cast, we're expecting it to be peppered with humour and drama.
The trailer opens with a scene of a new anchor (played by Aniton) revealing that her co-worker Mitch Kessler (played by Carell) has recently been fired. Witherspoon also appears as a brunette, a far cry from her signature blonde locks.

The Morning Show is inspired by Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, a non-fiction memoir that stories several daytime television shows, their hosts, and events whilst Stelter helmed an anchor position.
“Through the prism of those under-slept and over-adrenalized people behind and in front of the camera, we take an honest look at relationships between women and men in the workplace" says Aniston, who is making her first TV series return since Friends ended in 2004. This is also where Aniston and Witherspoon met for the first time, when they played the estranged Green sisters.

Both she and Witherspoon are also executive producers on the project.
We're ready for the high-stakes drama to launch in autumn 2019.
