Apple TV is getting into the original programming game, and it released the first trailer for its new drama The Morning Show.
The Morning Show is Apple TV’s new series centering around the daily drama of a morning news show (the branding of the fictitious, titular show gives off some serious Good Morning America vibes). The show stars Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell, all who play individuals working for the news program.
This trailer is most definitely a teaser. The clip does not offer us any live shots from the show, playing overlapping dialogue from Witherspoon, Carell, and Aniston, and only shows us the characters in pictures and posters. Still, it delivers quite a dramatic punch and will have you wanting more.
Clearly, there are going to be some serious egos and conflicting ideas facing off between Carell, Aniston, and Witherspoon’s characters. We get some glimpses into the drama as the teaser is laced with lines from the show like “don’t you ever question my integrity in my house again,” talks about winning and things going “my way,” and the trailer ending with Witherspoon’s character saying people “want to trust that the person telling them the truth about the world is an honest person.”
With three great actors at the helm, this has the makings of a truly poignant drama. Plus, the story feels quite timely as the general public is striving to hold news outlets and journalists themselves to a certain standard of excellence and integrity.
As Variety reports, The Morning Show comes from Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res, and is based on an idea from Ellenberg as well as drawing “on background material from CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter’s 2013 book Top of the Morning, which recounted the recent rivalry between NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America.”
Apple has ordered two seasons of The Morning Show, and each season will have 10 episodes. You can check out the series on-demand and ad-free exclusively on Apple TV Plus when The Morning Show premieres this fall.
