Upon its launch this fall, Apple TV+’s original programming with include a new episodic series called The Morning Show starring Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, Billy Crudup, and Mark Duplas. After serving up a brief teaser last week, Apple has now unveiled a full-length trailer, offering our first real look at the Anniston and Witherspoon-produced dramedy.
By the looks of it, The Morning Show’s storyline is a nod to the real-life scandals surrounding TODAY and CBS This Morning, both of which lost their male leads over sexual misconduct allegations. The trailer begins with Anniston’s character announcing the firing of her longtime male co-host (Carell) as a result of an unspecified transgression. Witherspoon is brought in to replace Carell’s character, but her presence seemingly leads to Anniston’s own tailspin a la Howard Beale in Network.
