The Morning Show Teaser Trailer Released by Apple

-

Apple has released a first look at The Morning Show, the new series coming exclusively to the new subscription video service Apple TV+ this fall.

The Morning Show stars Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon, Emmy Award winner Jennifer Aniston and Emmy Award-winner Steve Carell in a high-stakes drama that pulls back the curtain on early morning TV. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup, Bel Powley, Karen Pittman, Desean Terry, and Mark Duplass also star.


The series is loosely based on CNN correspondent Brian Stelter’s book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, which is officially described as follows:

CNN correspondent Brian Stelter reveals the dark side of morning television with exclusive material about current and past morning stars, from Matt Lauer to Katie Couric.

When America wakes up with personable and charming hosts like Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos, it’s hard to imagine their show bookers having to guard a guest’s hotel room all night to prevent rival shows from poaching. But that is just a glimpse of the intense reality revealed in this gripping look into the most competitive time slot in television.


Featuring exclusive content about all the major players of the 2000s, TOP OF THE MORNING illuminates what it takes to win the AM — when every single viewer counts, tons of jobs are on the line, and hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake. Stelter is behind the scenes as Ann Curry replaces Meredith Vieira on the Today show, only to be fired a year later in a fiasco that made national headlines. He’s backstage as Good Morning America launches an attack to dethrone Today and end the longest consecutive winning streak in morning television history. And he’s there as Roberts is diagnosed with a crippling disease — on what should be the happiest day of her career.

So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and discover the dark side of the sun.

Mimi Leder serves as director and executive produces the series along with Aniston, Witherspoon, Kerry Ehrin, Michael Ellenberg, Kristin Hahn, and Lauren Levy Neustadter.
