After previously focusing on music-related programs like "Carpool Karaoke: The Series", the news continues to show that Apple is looking to branch out with other content to take on big players like Netflix and Amazon. Between Aniston's TV legacy and Witherspoon's recent small-screen awards buzz, thanks to Big Little Lies, we're guessing plenty of viewers will be interested-but will they be willing to pony up for yet another streaming service just to watch this drama, or the Steven Spielberg anthology series Amazing Stories?
The tech giant has picked up the untitled drama with a straight-to-series, two-season order (20 episodes total).
The show will boast 10 episodes per season and draw from the book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, by Brian Stelter.
An Apple spokeswoman would only say the series is "an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual".
Mueller has enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn
Also part of Mueller's line of inquiry is the $530,000 Flynn received for consulting work on behalf of Turkey in the fall of 2016. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has gathered enough evidence to charge President Trump 's ex-National Security Advisor Michael T.
The dynamic duo-who haven't acted together since Witherspoon's cameo on Friends-will star, executive produce and share ownership of the show with former HBO head of drama, Michael Ellenberg.
The show will be executive produced by Ms. Aniston and her Echo Films production company, along with Ms. Witherspoon and her Hello Sunshine company. In addition to Spielberg and Fuller, Amazing Stories is executive produced by Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey and Hart Hanson; and produced by Universal Television and Amblin Television.
The new show will reunite the two actresses.
Aniston, who earned five Emmy nominations and won one for her role as Rachel Green on NBC's Friends, is repped by CAA, Lighthouse Management and Hansen Jacobson.
