Reese Witherspoon And 'Friends' Star Jennifer Aniston Returns To Television

Apple Earnings: iPhone Sales Up Even Before iPhone X Went On Sale

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are set to co-star, executive produce, and co-own a new drama series for Apple, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Apple has been all-but-officially interested in the show since it hit the market this summer (so, reportedly, was Netflix).

Aniston executive produces through her Echo Films banner; Witherspoon through her Hello Sunshine production company, and Ellenberg through Media Res. Brian Stelter, host of CNN's Sunday morning program Reliable Sources and author of Top of the Morning, will consult on the series.

Apple promises "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". And the project will mark the big return to television of Ms. Aniston, the former "Friends" star.




After nearly 15 years away from the small screen, the Friends star is joining her former on-screen sister Reese Witherspoon in an Apple drama about the inner workings of a network morning show. Witherspoon recently made a big TV splash with Big Little Lies, which earlier this year netted her an Outstanding Limited Series Emmy for her work as a producer on the star-studded HBO miniseries, while Aniston won an Emmy and Golden Globe for her beloved turn as Rachel in Friends.

Reimagining the original anthology, Amazing Stories, executive produced by Spielberg in partnership with Bryan Fuller, "will transport the audience to worlds of wonder through the lens of today's most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers".

Aniston has not appeared in a regular role on a TV series since "Friends" went off the air in 2004.

Neither show has a premiere date, and it's yet to be seen how Apple's original programming will be available for customers to stream.
