Lately, there's been a lot of buzz about Jennifer Aniston. Some are juicy but questionable, and yes we're talking about those rumours of her reuniting with ex-husband Brad Pitt. However, this we know to be true: she's getting a television comeback and it's sooner than expected.
Although Aniston never really left showbusiness and has recently starred in movies such as Dumplin' and Murder Mystery, the celebrated actress didn't take a major role in any television series since playing Rachel Green in Friends more than a decade ago. To say that fans were ecstatic at the announcement that she will return to television via Apple TV+'s The Morning Show is an understatement. Ahead, the exciting details about her upcoming comeback.
Jennifer Aniston will be playing an ageing news anchor
The Morning Show centres on three main characters: Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston), who is an ageing news anchor; Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), Alex's former co-anchor who was fired for sexual allegations; and Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), the journalist who is being groomed to replace Mitch and pitted against Alex. The plot will mostly revolve around Alex fighting to keep her job and the tensed relationship with newcomer Bradley.
It explores the effects of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements
The series will explore not just the downfall of predatory men in the entertainment industry, but also the way it affects the women they were involved with and how other people will take advantage of the drama. One line in the trailer perfectly sums it up, "Watching a beloved woman's breakdown is timeless American entertainment."
It's said to be one of the most expensive series to be produced
Believe it or not, the show is estimated to be more expensive to produce than Game Of Thrones, according to Financial Times. It's said that Apple TV+ invested around $6 billion dollars to produce original content and a chunk of it was used for The Morning Show. Well, with that amount of money, we're expecting some top-notch content.
