Gugu Mbatha Raw shares the screen with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon in the trailer for the Apple TV+ series, The Morning Show.
The series, which also features Karen Pittman, will follow a morning show that is seemingly going through a crisis, including a co-anchor shake-up. According to the official description, the series will offer “an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning.” The series is based on the book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV by Brian Stelter.
Apple TV+ describes the series in this way: What happens when the people you trust to tell the truth prove themselves to be dishonest? The Morning Show follows the free fall of an early morning newscast in the wake of a scandal, and its struggle to survive in an era when news arrives in the palm of your hand.
Mbatha-Raw plays “whip-smart and charming head booker of talent” Hannah Shoenfeld. As you can see in the trailer, aside from being highly intelligent, she also is adamant about her leads positively affecting the morning show’s audience.
Check out the trailer below.
The series will debut this fall.
