The Morning Show was one of the first shows announced by Apple when they shared their plans of releasing their streaming service- Apple TV Plus. The upcoming show is star-studded with known faces like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell. With such faces and Apple’s goodwill in the market, the show is set to be a hit drama series for Apple. The show is definitely the most significant attention for Apple TV Plus, and with the first teaser clips releasing on YouTube, the hype has reached even higher.
There are a few things you can expect from the show. The first being that Apple ordered two installments for the series and will partially adapted from the book Top of the Morning by Brian Stelter. This is Steve’s first lead TV show role since The Office and the same with Jennifer, as this is her first significant TV show role after Friends.
The second piece of information we have is that Kerry Ehrin is going to be in charge of the show. Kerry already has shows like The Wonder Years, Bates Motel and Friday Night Lights under her belt. She got nominations for Emmy under Outstanding Comedy and Drama series.
