"Watching a beloved woman's breakdown is timeless American entertainment."
Almost two years ago, Apple TV announced their plan to launch a streaming service, along with an epic project—a show starring and executive produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.
On Monday, The Morning Show released its first official trailer. The highly anticipated show will dive into the interpersonal drama of broadcast journalism: the network politics of a newsroom, strong-willed executives, and anchors' struggles against ageism, all the while vying for America's hearts.
The trailer begins with Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) sitting alone at her desk and announcing that her co-host of 15 years, Mitch Kesser (Steve Carell), was fired for undisclosed allegations, suggesting that the show will unpack the effects of the MeToo movement. Then, insert Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), a hard-hitting, on the ground reporter recruited to join the show's staff and ready to shake things up. Cue the drama between a younger, rising star and a seasoned, beloved host as they're pitted against one another. Throw in a couple of male showrunners and executives (played by Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass) to exasperate those tensions, and you've got Apple TV's first hit show!
