Sometimes fiction can be a reflection of reality. Lately, national news anchors losing their jobs over accusations of sexual harassment have been making headlines. As such, it has become the basis for Apple TV+’s newest series The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell. In it, Carell plays Mitch Kessler, a major news anchor who has been fired off from a national broadcast morning show, leaving his co-host Alex Levy (played by Aniston) to run the show on her own. But when Bradley Jackson, a new younger news reporter (played by Witherspoon), is chosen to be a co-anchor, Alex views the new addition as someone who could take her job. Soon, it becomes a battle of egos and doing whatever it takes to protect their standing or advance in the world of morning news television. Check out the full trailer here below.
