Between heading up her own production company, Pacific Standard, running the Draper James lifestyle brand, and starring in upcoming projects like A Wrinkle in Time and the rumored second season of Big Little Lies, Reese Witherspoon certainly knows how to keep busy.

Earlier this week, she added to her to-do list when it was announced that Apple bought her new drama with Jennifer Aniston about morning television. Witherspoon and Aniston will not only star in the series, which will mark Aniston's first recurring TV role since she wrapped Friends back in 2004, but they'll also co-own and produce it.

This isn't the first time the pair has worked together. Witherspoon played Rachel Green's younger sister on the famed NBC series back in 2000.


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. House of Cards alum Jay Carson is reportedly writing the series, which will have an original story, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Brian Stelter's book Top of the Morning, which chronicles the behind-the-scenes drama of shows like Today and Good Morning America, "provided additional background."

At this point, it's unclear how much Apple paid for the show—which is only the second time the tech giant has ordered a program straight-to-series—though multiple outlets were reportedly in a bidding war over the concept.

A premiere date hasn't been shared publicly yet. We'll be sure to update as soon as we have additional information.
