A lot of its competitors in the technology industry, led by Amazon, have been making incursions into Hollywood in recent years, and Apple, with cash on hand in the hundreds of billions, can certainly afford to make a run at becoming a huge Hollywood player, and reports earlier this year said the company was putting $1 billion into original content.
Not many details about the show are known except that it will be about morning shows, the "larger NY media scene", and "unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily television ritual" (per The Hollywood Reporter).
Apple has also given the green light to a reboot of the mid-80s drama Amazing Stories from Steven Spielberg and Bryan Fuller, whose credits include Hannibal and Star Trek: Discovery. After nearly 15 years away from the small screen, the Friends star is joining her former on-screen sister Reese Witherspoon in an Apple drama about the inner workings of a network morning show.

The hotly-anticipated television team-up of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon finally has a home: Apple will produce the as-yet-untitled drama series about the world of morning talk shows.
In addition to reuniting Witherspoon and Aniston (Recode resident "Friends" expert Johana Bhuiyan reminds me that Witherspoon guest-starred as Aniston's sister on that show), the show is important because it illustrates Apple's focus on landing Very Big Names as it prepares to dive deeply into the TV business.
The dynamic duo-who haven't acted together since Witherspoon's cameo on Friends-will star, executive produce and share ownership of the show with former HBO head of drama, Michael Ellenberg. Media Res, Aniston and Witherspoon are the principle owners of the show. Based on an original idea by Ellenberg, the series is written and executive produced by Jay Carson (House of Cards), who will serve as showrunner.
