Witherspoon-Aniston venture together in morning “show-down”

Good morning to Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston. Apple TV has released the first full trailer for The Morning Show, co-produced by and starring the Big Little Lies and Murder Mystery actresses as two journalists taking on a patriarchal broadcast news industry. The trailer seems to set up a morning showdown between Aniston’s veteran host and Witherspoon’s outspoken field reporter, but hints at a more complex feminist narrative as Aniston’s character deals with an industry that sees her as well past her “sell by” date. The #MeToo-and Time’s Up-era drama marks Aniston’s first series-regular role since her breakout turn as Rachel Green in Friends. A team effort between her production company Echo Films and Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, the 10-episode series is set to debut on Apple TV + soon.
