The show doesn't have a name or a proposed air date (though spring of 2019 is a decent bet). Deadline reports the tech company has ordered two seasons of an original TV show featuring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.
Apple, which has a $1 billion war chest to compete for TV projects, had already acquired the rights to revive Steven Spielberg's 1980s anthology series "Amazing Stories". Witherspoon (who had a memorable guest arc on "Friends" as Rachel's little sister, Jill, and who has remained pals with Aniston since) scored her first Emmy nomination earlier this year for her work on HBO limited series "Big Little Lies", and also recently had a guest turn on "The Mindy Project".
Brian Stelter's book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV will provide additional background for the original show.
The Oscar victor comes off of HBO's Emmy-award winning series Big Little Lies where Witherspoon also produced and starred with Academy Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman.
The series, as yet untitled, will follow the lives of the morning show hosts there to wake America up each day, and the "unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual".
Apple is believed to be employing a model similar to Netflix's, with straight-to-series orders and premiums over cost, which vary from show to show.
Media Res will produce the series for Apple, with founder Michael Ellenberg billed as an executive producer. Jay Carson (House of Cards) is penning the pilot and will serve as the series showrunner. The drama will transport the audience to worlds of wonder through the lens of today's most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers.
While Witherspoon just starred in Big Little Lies, the show marks Aniston's first regular TV role since Friends concluded in 2004.
