Apple Lands Reese Witherspoon-Jennifer Aniston Morning Show Drama

Apple Lands Reese Witherspoon-Jennifer Aniston Morning Show Drama

The now untitled project will see the two actresses star, executive produce and co-own the straight-to-series show alongside Michael Ellenberg's Media Res company, and will be produced for Apple, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston have landed a two-season deal at Apple for their new morning show series.

The untitled project revolves around a fictional morning show and the lives of the people involved.

The series - written by Emmy-nominated "House of Cards" scribe Jay Carson - marks the first time Jennifer, 48, will make her first TV series return for more than a decade after shooting to fame in the hit 1990s show "Friends".

Apple has already ordered two seasons of the show, but is yet to announce any details such as release date or distribution platform. In a competitive situation with multiple networks pursuing, Apple was able to land the project, employing a model similar to Netflix with straight-to-series orders and premiums over cost.

Stars Aniston and Witherspoon are also co-owners and co-executive producers, alongside production company Media Res, which will lead the project, according to the Reporter.

Last month Apple ordered an adaptation of the classic 1980s series "Amazing Stories". It will be based, in part, on CNN correspondent Brian Stelter's book "Top of the Morning", which documented recent behind-the-scenes drama in the ratings war between NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "Good Morning America".

Witherspoon, who has since won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role as June Cash in Walk The Line, made a TV comeback of her own this year on Sky Atlantic's Emmy victor Big Little Lies.
