Apple Lands New Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston TV Show

Apple Lands New Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston TV Show

"Friends" star Jennifer Aniston is coming back to television and she's partnering with Reese Witherspoon.

Apple has ordered two seasons of a drama about the world of network morning television that will star Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, both of whom will also executive produce.

Apple has been all-but-officially interested in the show since it hit the market this summer (so, reportedly, was Netflix). The Amazing Stories anthology is execu produced by Spielberg in partnership with Bryan Fuller, who serves as showrunner.

House of Cards' Carson will also showrun the series, which reunites Aniston and Witherspoon for the first time on screen since they played sisters in Friends. The show is based on the book "Top of the Morning" by CNN reporter Brian Stelter.

The now untitled Aniston-Witherspoon drama received a straight to series, two season order with ten episodes per season, and we're Madeline Martha Mackenzie-level excited.

The company has made a handful of shows already, the most high-profile of which is probably a series version of "Carpool Karaoke", the popular bit from "The Late Late Show with James Corden".

The two actresses are set to co-star in an upcoming series that gives an inside look at the lives and unique challenges of morning talk show hosts. Michael Ellenberg, the former head of drama at HBO, will also be an executive producer.

Neither show has a premiere date, and it's yet to be seen how Apple's original programming will be available for customers to stream.

The news is thrilling for fans of the two talented women. More recently, she scored an Emmy nom for her starring role in HBO's Big Little Lies with the limited series likely to return for a second season after taking home the win in the category.
