'The Morning Show' trailer teases heavy take on TV journalism

Steve Carell Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston speak during an event launching Apple tv+ at Apple headquarters 'The Morning Show' trailer teases heavy take on TV journalism

Carell: "I feel like people are screaming for honest conversation."

The Morning Show will take audiences behind-the-scenes of the fictional daily TV programme, giving them an insight into the high stakes, betrayals, and upset plaguing the lives of the some of the most recognisable faces in America. "Good morning", says Aniston's voiceover. The morning show looks like Apple's version ofThe Newsroom, Aaron Sorkin's HBO series about a team of journalists at a CNN-like organization. Steve Carell, who stars as anchor Mitch Kessler, exclaims. The minute-long teaser provides shots of the morning show set as different characters speak via voice-over. Aniston and Carell play the hosts of the titular morning show, who seem to frequently butt heads and egos. Aniston and Witherspoon's roles are unnamed on IMDb, but we spotted the names "Karen" and "Bradley" labeling Aniston's and Witherspoon's sound bytes when we watched the teaser with subtitles.

"I'm just here to deliver the news to America". The Morning Show will debut exclusively on Apple TV+ this fall.

From a promo poster seen in the teaser, we think Aniston's character is a broadcast news anchor.

Created by Michael Ellenberg, it's loosely based on Brian Stelter's book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV and executive produced by Aniston and Witherspoon, along with showrunner Kerry Ehrin (Bates Motel) and director Mimi Leder (The Leftovers). Apple TV gave the series a two-season order in November 2017.

Since the Apple event, Witherspoon and Aniston have been spotted on set multiple times, including when they filmed a fight scene in the street. Aniston and Witherspoon will co-own and co-produce the show.
