Jennifer Aniston is glad she got her reps in the entertainment business before “The Morning Show” came around.
Aniston and Reese Witherspoon grace the Fall TV Preview 2019 edition of Entertainment Weekly. Both women star in and serve as executive producers for the Apple TV+ series.
“This role never could’ve come to me any sooner than now,” Aniston tells EW. “It’s one of the hardest jobs I’ve had. I knew I was up to the task, but then there was the excavation of all the emotions in order to create this world for this woman.”
“All of her lifelines are falling away,” she continues. “I would walk out of some of those scenes feeling like a manhole cover just came off my back.”
Apple TV+ executive James Erlicht made an offer on “The Morning Show” 15 minutes after hearing the pitch. “It was so undeniable, both in the story they wanted to tell and who was involved,” he says. “We said we had to have it.”
“The Morning Show” also stars Steve Carell and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. It premieres sometime in November 2019.
