  • Apple lands Aniston-Witherspoon TV show

While there isn't a title for the new project yet, or a script, Apple went ahead and gave the show a two-season order. The yet untitled series will center on the cruel world of network morning television shows.

Apple has secured a TV series starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, two of the most successful actresses of their generation, in the clearest sign yet of the tech giant's intent to make a big splash in Hollywood. The series is described as, "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". Can't wait for y'all to see it!

A Friends episode called The One With Rachel's Sister introduces Witherspoon's Jill Green, Rachel's spoiled younger sister who almost starts a relationship with her ex-boyfriend Ross.

The 41-year-old Oscar victor gushed: "So excited to be back and reunited with this one-of-a-kind lady!" But this project is far splashier - Witherspoon is coming off a major success with HBO limited series Big Little Lies, for which she was a star and an executive producer. After releasing a pair of forgettable series that failed to gain any type of traction - Planet of the Apps and a Carpool Karaoke spinoff - Apple last month finally stepped up to the plate and inked a multi-million dollar deal to revive the 80s sci-fi adventure series Amazing Stories. Jennifer Aniston would return to the TV screen after nearly a decade and share screen with the versatile Resse Witherspoon, the show would be worth watching. House of Cards' Jay Carson will serve as the pilot writer and showrunner.

The actress starred as Madeline Martha Mackenzie in the hit show and co-produced alongside fellow Oscar victor Nicole Kidman.
