Apple have published the first official trailer for ‘The Morning Show’. In addition to stars Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell; the original drama series will co- star Billy Cudrup and Mark Duplus.
In the full trailer Anistons character declares a “new era” is set to begin at the morning show after imparting “sad and upsetting” news to viewers about her fired co-anchor played by Steve Carell following allegations made against him.
Carrels character isn’t the only one to be affected by the news, with Anistons character declared to be past her “sell-by -date” with a hungry field reporter played by Reese Witherspoon, thrown into the deep end as the show-within-a-show’s power dynamics begin to shift.
Apple shared more about what we can expect from the Apple TV+ original:
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 Morning Show 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.
As a fan of political dramas including Aaron Sorkin’s hit HBO drama series – The Newsroom – I’m pleasantly surprised by the tone of the first trailer. Judging by the early response, Apple are onto a hit with the show set for two seasons comprising of ten episodes.
Apple TV+ is set to launch this Autumn via the Apple TV app. Subscribers will be able to access Apples original content across iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and a selection of Smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Sony and Vizio.
