The A-list early birds get the worm: Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon‘s drama about the behind-the-scenes goings-on at a morning talk show has received a two-season pickup at Apple, our sister site Deadline reports.
The Friends and Big Little Lies actresses will star in and executive-produce the scripted series, which is based on an idea from former HBO executive Michael Ellenberg and which will include context from Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV. The project also has apparently had some tweaks since its inception: When we first reported on the potential series in July, it was conceived as a comedy.
The order is for 20 episodes spread over two seasons.
The series will mark Aniston’s first regular TV gig since Friends ended in 2004.
