Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell tease tense backstage drama in the first teaser for their new series, The Morning Show. The show will debut on Apple’s new streaming service Apple TV+ this fall.
The Morning Show will be “a high stakes drama that pulls back the curtain on early morning TV,” according to a press release. Though the teaser gives away few plot details, it takes us around the empty backstage area of a morning show studio, where a poster shows that Carell and Aniston’s characters are the hosts.
The three main cast members are heard in voiceover, reciting snippets from disparate conversations — “I am a journalist!”, “Don’t you ever question my integrity in my house ever again,” “We don’t know the details of the allegations” — before the screen fades to black.
Jay Carson (House of Cards, The Front Runner) initially helmed production on The Morning Show before exiting over creative differences. Kerry Ehrin currently serves as the showrunner. The series also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup, Néstor Carbonell, and Mark Duplass.
