New York (The Verge) — Apple’s first Morning Show trailer teases a heavy take on TV journalism theverge.com/2019/8/12/2080….
Apple needs flashy dramas to help its new Apple TV Plus service compete in the upcoming streaming wars, and The Morning Show is shaping up to be one of those shows. The new drama stars Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon. Here’s a first look at the teaser.
A new teaser for the show, which stars Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon, makes it look like Apple’s version of The Newsroom, Aaron Sorkin’s HBO series about a team of journalists at a CNN-like organization, as they fight trends that affect the coverage of major political and cultural events. The Morning Show’s teaser doesn’t include any of the major stars, but the dramatic voiceover about the importance of journalism today is reminiscent of the style of Sorkin’s series, which ran from 2012 to 2014. — Julia Alexander/@verge
