Apple has released a teaser for its highly anticipated upcoming drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. It is going to be Apple TV+ first-morning show which also stars Steve Carell, provides a peek into the high-stakes drama that will pull back the curtain on early-morning TV. The +teaser dropped on Monday which includes dramatic out-of-context audio but no footage of Aniston, Witherspoon and Carell’s characters.
The clips from forthcoming scenes are played over a visual tour of the Morning Show set introducing the Apple original series. The morning show looks like Apple’s version of The Newsroom, Aaron Sorkin’s HBO series about a team of journalists at a CNN-like organization. Because they talk about the trends which affect the coverage of the major political and cultural event. The teaser does not include any of the major stars, but the dramatic voiceover about the importance of journalism today is reminiscent of the style of Sorkin’s series, which ran from 2012 to 2014.
According to the Deadline, Apple TV+ morning show will focus on the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual. The teaser starts with the camera panning down a dark hallway behind the scenes at the show, with Aniston’s voice saying, “Good morning. I am bringing you some sad and upsetting news.”
The dialogue from the three characters shows a difference of opinion about how the show should run. The teaser did not announce a specific premiere date. The Morning Show will debut exclusively on Apple TV+ this fall. This show is one of the biggest series the company is touting for early subscribers. Still, Apple hasn’t released many details about the show or the streaming service.
“The Morning Show” is executive produced by Ehrin; Ellenberg; Aniston and Kristin Hahn through Echo Films; and Witherspoon and Lauren Levy Neustadter through Hello Sunshine.
There’s no price or actual launch date, but all of those details will likely be announced next month at its annual Apple event. Apple TV Plus will launch alongside streaming services from other major competitors, like Disney+. Having shows like The Morning Show and See, which stars Jason Momoa and reportedly cost $15 million an episode, is just one way to stand out.
Apple ordered two seasons of the show with 10 episodes per season streaming exclusively. The new service is an original video subscription service that will feature original shows, movies, and documentaries. The app would be app free and the program will only be available on demand. Apple TV+ available across iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, streaming boxes like Roku and Amazon Fire TV, and even some third-party smart TV sets.
