Apple just dropped another trailer for its new show with Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell, and it's much more revealing than the first teaser. 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+ in the fall.

The series is kicking off with a bang and is basing some of the stories off of real-life events.

It seems the inciting incident will be when Steve Carrell is accused of sexual harassment and is subsequently thrown under the bus by his co-worker Jenniver Aniston and fired. Witherspoon is an ambitious up, and coming news anchor brought in to replace Carell. With Jackson's ascent on the program, Levy begins to lose her footing, fighting with her producer (Mark Duplass) and leading network suit Corey Ellison (Billy Crudup) to lick his chops. The series is inspired by CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter's 2013 book "Top of the Morning", which explored the morning show rivalry between NBC's "Today" and ABC's "Good Morning America". During an Apple event launching their new division and sharing future projects last March, giving fans more insight into the original series.

The Verge wrote about the similarities between the two logos on Monday, but Twitter user Brent, who describes himself on Twitter as a product designer based in NY, noticed the similarity a week ago, when Apple dropped its teaser trailer for the "The Morning Show" on August 12.

You couldn't ask for a better cast than this (although it feels, at least from this trailer, like the conflict between the two female leads would make more sense if the up-and-coming reporter was played by someone much younger than Aniston; she and Witherspoon were born about seven years apart).

"The part you guys never seem to realize is that you don't have the power anymore", Alex hisses at her coworkers. "We are doing this my way", Aniston's character spouts off in the trailer.

Apple is planning to release its streaming service Apple TV Plus by November 2019, according to a report by Bloomberg. Now, the first official trailer has come out and it gives us our first real look at the drama driving the series.
