'The Morning Show' Trailer: Aniston, Carell and Witherspoon

'The Morning Show' Trailer: Aniston, Carell and Witherspoon

With the tagline "The news is only half the story", the series follows the lives of the people behind the early morning TV shows we all wake up to.

In the clip, which Witherspoon also shared on her Instagram page, the camera flows behind-the-scenes at the empty studios of the fictional morning show, panning through the hallways, dressing rooms, and control room before settling on the anchor desk.

With Apple TV+ launching this fall (which starts in just six weeks!), the streaming service has released a teaser for The Morning Show, which stars the award-winning trifecta of Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon. "Good morning", says Aniston's voiceover. "We are doing this my way". Witherspoon's voice can be heard saying, "I want to be right, I want to win!", while Carell says, "I am a journalist!" "That's all I ever wanted to do", while Aniston's character declares "America loves me!" Reese later quips, "I think they want to know the person behind the facade". Aniston was on Friends for 10 seasons before it ended its run in 2004.

It's Carell's first foray back into the small screen after seven seasons on The Office. "[We're having] so much fun brainstorming and laughing and sending each other emails". Witherspoon made her main role television debut in last year's Big Little Lies, for which she also executive produced the series.

The suspected gunman, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius , of Allen, Texas, has been booked on capital murder charges. Crusius told law enforcement members he wanted to kill as many Mexicans as possible, sources told ABC News.

I feel that people are screaming for an honest conversation.

The series also stars Billy Crudup and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

The Morning Show will debut exclusively this fall (date TBA) on Apple TV+, a video subscription service that will feature original shows, movies and documentaries.
