Apple+ Releases Full Trailer For ‘The Morning Show’ Starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon & Steve Carell
Apple’s new streaming service, Apple TV+, which is due to go live in the Autumn, has released the first full trailer for ‘The Morning Show‘, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon & Steve Carell.
Set behind the scenes of a tv station, the dramedy asks “what happens when the people you trust to tell the truth prove themselves to be dishonest?” The Morning Show follows the free fall of an early morning newscast in the wake of a scandal, and its struggle to survive in an era when news arrives in the palm of your hand.
The series stars Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon, Emmy winner Jennifer Aniston and Golden Globe winner Steve Carell in a high-stakes drama that pulls back the curtain on the morning news.
They are joined by Billy Crudup (‘Watchmen’, ‘Alien: Covenant’), Nestor Carbonell (‘Midnight, Texas’, ‘Lost’), Bel Powley (‘Informer’, ‘Benidorm’), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (‘Black Mirror’, ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’) and Mark Duplass (‘Goliath’, ‘The Mindy Project’).
‘The Morning Show’ is written by Kerry Ehrin (‘Bates Motel’, ‘Parenthood’, ‘Friday Night Lights’), who also serves as showrunner, based on an original idea by Michael Ellenberg. Mimi Leder (‘The Leftovers’, ‘Shameless’) direct and exec produces, alongside Aniston, Witherspoon, Ehrin, Kristin Hahn (Echo Films) and Lauren Levy Neustadter (Hello Sunshine). Michael Ellenberg also exec produces via Media Res, who serve as the studio.
‘The Morning Show‘ doesn’t have an exact premiere date yet, but it is to be one of Apple TV+’s launch titles, so will appear in Autumn (Fall) 2019, when the service launches in the UK & US.
It will be joined by Ronald D. Moore’s alt-history space drama ‘For All Mankind’ starring Joel Kinnaman; ‘Mythic Quest‘, a comedy set in a video game development studio from Charlie Day & Rob McElhenney, the people behind ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’; ‘Truth Be Told‘, an adaptation of true-crime novel ‘Are You Sleeping’ by Kathleen Barber starring Octavia Spencer and Lizzy Caplan; And ‘Snoopy in Space’… it’s Peanut’s Snoopy… in Space!
