Apple Lands New Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston TV Show
The tech giant has secured one of the most sought-after new projects in television, landing the rights to a new drama centered on a morning TV show
and starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, the company announced on Wednesday.
Apple, which has a $1 billion war chest to compete for TV projects, had already acquired
the rights to revive Steven Spielberg’s 1980s anthology series, “Amazing Stories.”
But the Witherspoon-Aniston project is by far the splashier move.
The show will be executive produced by Ms. Aniston and her Echo Films production company, along with Ms. Witherspoon and her Hello Sunshine company.
Ms. Witherspoon is coming off a major success with the HBO limited series “Big Little Lies,” for which she was a star and an executive producer.
Few details are known about the series other than its big stars
and its concept, which is built around a morning TV show in the style of “Today” and “Good Morning America.” The show does not have a title, and no scripts have yet been handed in.
And the project will mark the big return to television of Ms. Aniston, the former “Friends” star.
