Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon's TV Series Just Found a Home & It's

Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon's TV Series Just Found a Home & It's

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.

The show doesn't have a name or a proposed air date (though spring of 2019 is a decent bet).

The project received a straight-to-season order for two seasons from Apple, likely because of its star power: Aniston and Witherspoon are not only starring in the show, but also executive producing.

Apple has been all-but-officially interested in the show since it hit the market this summer (so, reportedly, was Netflix). Brian Stelter's book Top of the Morning will reportedly provide background material, with Stelter himselve acting as a consultant.

The series does not have a title or any finished scripts yet, but Apple has already placed a two-season straight-to-series order that will encompass 20 episodes after a bidding war between multiple outlets, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Apple hasn't said where people will be able to watch its shows, though the company hopes to release its first slate in 2019, Bloomberg reported in October.

Aniston and Witherspoon's series will offer an inside look at the lives of morning talk show hosts and the drama and challenges they face.

Jay Carson (House of Cards) is writing, executive producing, and serving as showrunner for the series.

Both Aniston and Witherspoon and their respective production companies, Echo Films and Hello Sunshine, will be executive producing the project, alongside former HBO drama head Michael Ellenberg. The drama will transport the audience to worlds of wonder through the lens of today's most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers.

The news is thrilling for fans of the two talented women.

It's a huge acquisition for Apple as it attempts to rival streamers like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu in the original programming space.

Aniston, who earned five Emmy nominations and won one for her role as Rachel Green on NBC's Friends, is repped by CAA, Lighthouse Management and Hansen Jacobson.
