Jennifer Aniston Back on TV After 15 Years

September 11, 2019

Jennifer Aniston stole hearts on the hit show ‘Friends’ as the “daddy’s girl” turned businesswoman, but now she is returning to the small screen with a new role.

Twenty-five years ago, she took on the character Rachel Green on the NBC sitcom.

Aniston will now both star in and executive produce Apple TV+'s new series "The Morning Show."

It takes viewers into a newsroom and shows how a morning show is faced with sexual misconduct allegations against one its hosts.

Aniston will be collaborating with her costar and executive producer Reese Witherspoon.

According to PEOPLE Witherspoon worked with Aniston on ‘Friends’ starring as Rachel’s bratty younger sister, Jill in 2000.

Both Witherspoon and Aniston pitched the idea back in 2017 to Apple.

An exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly talks to both actresses about their TV reunion and how "The Morning Show" changed after the #MeToo movement.

Witherspoon mentioned in the interview that the show originally pitched isn’t what made it to the screen.

After the #MeToo movement, Aniston said the show could not address what was going on across through the nation.

In the series, Aniston who plays Alex Levy is forced to address the nation that her co-host Mitch Kessler who is played by Steve Carell is fired following sexual misconduct allegations.

Back in 2017, former TODAY show host Matt Lauer was fired after sexual misconduct claims were filed against him.

"The Morning Show" is available to stream on Apple TV+ on November 1.
