Apple’s The Morning Show Teaser Debuts

Steve Carell Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston speak during an event launching Apple tv+ at Apple headquarters

The Morning Show stars Steve Carell (Beautiful Boy, Welcome to Marwen), Jennifer Aniston (Murder Mystery), Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies), Billy Crudup (Titanic), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror), Nestor Carbonell (The Dark Knight) and Mark Duplass (Big Mouth). The footage features series stars Jennifer Aniston, 50, Reese Witherspoon, 43, and Steve Carell, 56, in voiceovers.

Written and executive-produced by Bates Motel co-creator Kerry Ehrin, the project - which received a two-season, 20-episode order right out of the gate - is billed as "a high-stakes drama that pulls back the curtain on early morning TV".

A 10-episode second season has already been ordered ahead of the first.

Aniston and Witherspoon play "two ambitious, aspirational female characters", as the latter said in March, while Carell portrays Mitch Kessler, an anchor struggling to maintain relevancy in the ever-changing media world.

I can guarantee that you are underestimating me.

I feel that people are screaming for an honest conversation.

"I think they want to know the person behind the facade." adds Witherspoon's Bradley Jackson.

In the clip, which Witherspoon also shared on her Instagram page, the camera flows behind-the-scenes at the empty studios of the fictional morning show, panning through the hallways, dressing rooms, and control room before settling on the anchor desk. "[We're having] so much fun brainstorming and laughing and sending each other emails".

The series, exclusive to Apple TV+, will be arriving on the streaming platform this Autumn, and while we don't have an exact airdate just yet, we do have a trailer.
