Jennifer Aniston is coming back to television

Apple has landed Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston for an upcoming original drama series that will based on the world of morning talk shows.

The drama will be set on a network morning show, and is the second full-force attempt at getting Apple into the premium television arena. 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.

Apple, which has a US$1-billion (S$1.36-billion) war chest to compete for TV projects, had already acquired the rights to revive Steven Spielberg's 1980s anthology series Amazing Stories.

Witherspoon, who has since won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role as June Cash in Walk The Line, made a TV comeback of her own this year on Sky Atlantic's Emmy victor Big Little Lies.

The team successfully analyzed the space in a room and created a custom reflector that could improve Wi-Fi signals inside it. The team also developed an approach to simulating how radio signals spread and interact with objects in their environment.

The show will mark not only Aniston's first TV role since starring as Rachel Green in the USA sitcom Friends, but also the first time the two actresses have worked together since the show.

While Apple has been trying to attract high quality storytellers to produce their new programming, no one yet knows exactly how audiences will be able to watch any of their series when they're ready for consumption.

It will be executive produced by Aniston and her Echo Films, along with Witherspoon and her Hello Sunshine company.

Media Res will produce the series for Apple, with founder Michael Ellenberg billed as an executive producer. Ms. Witherspoon appeared in a season 6 episode of Friends as Rachel's (Ms. Anniston) sister. House of Cards producer and political consultant Jay Carson will serve as writer, executive producer and showrunner.
