The show has been ordered in a straight-to-series deal for two seasons, according to The L.A. Times, bypassing the pilot stage entirely.

After rebooting a beloved 80s anthology series, Apple has added another entry to its scripted series lineup with an untitled morning show drama series project that will star and executive produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.

The as-yet-untitled series will center around the trials and tribulations of a morning television show based in Manhattan. Can't wait for y'all to see what we have in store.

The series has been described by Apple as "an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual".

Jennifer and Reese, 41, worked together on "Friends" after the blonde beauty starred as Jennifer's on-screen sister and have since remained close friends. Aniston (Friends) and Witherspoon (Big Little Lies) will star, executive produce and co-own the show alongside Michael Ellenberg's Media Res company, which will produce the series for Apple.

The 41-year-old Oscar victor gushed: "So excited to be back and reunited with this one-of-a-kind lady!"

Emmy-nominated Jay Carson ("House of Cards") will write, executive produce and serve as showrunner for the series, which does not have a launch date. Jennifer Aniston would return to the TV screen after nearly a decade and share screen with the versatile Resse Witherspoon, the show would be worth watching. In October, Apple reached an agreement with Steven Spielberg to revive Amazing Stories for $5 million per episode.

The drama was one of the big winners at the 2017 Emmy Awards, bagging eight prizes, including Outstanding Limited Series.
