The A-listers' previously announced collaboration, a dramatic series exploring the behind-the-scenes action of daily morning shows and its players, has officially been ordered to series by Apple for two seasons.
The series, as yet untitled, will follow the lives of the morning show hosts there to wake America up each day, and the "unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual".
CNN's Brian Stelter will consult on the project, with his 2013 book "Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV" serving as background material for the writers.
The now untitled Aniston-Witherspoon drama received a straight to series, two season order with ten episodes per season, and we're Madeline Martha Mackenzie-level excited.
The Witherspoon-Aniston series is being produced through Media Res, a production company founded by former HBO programming executive Michael Ellenberg, who is an executive producer on the series. Witherspoon played "Jill Green, ' sister to Aniston's 'Rachel Green" on two episodes of Friends. Both Witherspoon and Aniston will act as executive producers.
Since leaving his position as head of drama at HBO, Ellenberg has focused on development and has teamed with Bron Studios to launch Media Res. Apple has also committed to making "Amazing Stories", an anthology series produced by Spielberg and "Hannibal" creator Bryan Fuller. The company's first project in the works is Scenes From a Marriage, a limited-series take based on the five-hour 1973 film, with In Treatment's Hagai Levi and playwright Amy Herzog attached.
Neither show has a premiere date, and it's yet to be seen how Apple's original programming will be available for customers to stream.
The morning-TV project marks Aniston's first regular role on a TV series since NBC's hit Friends exited in 2004.
