Since the award-winning show concluded for a decade-and-a-half, Aniston starred in countless films. And now, she is returning to TV to take on an entirely different role.
She will both star in and executive produce Apple TV+'s original series 'The Morning Show', which debuts on November 1. The show will take viewers through the dynamics of a news programme that is faced with sexual misconduct allegations against one of its hosts.
"Acting and at the same time producing was intense for Jen," People quoted a source.
Aniston is teaming up with her co-star Reese Witherspoon, who guest-starred on 'Friends' as her bratty younger sister, Jill, in 2000.
The actresses pitched the idea of the show to Apple back in 2017, but the direction took a completely different turn when the #MeToo movement began. Suddenly, a fictional show became anything but unrealistic.
In the series, Aniston's character, Alex Levy, is forced to address the nation after her co-host Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) is fired following allegations of sexual misconduct.
