Jennifer Aniston will be returning to the small screen more than a decade after Friends. She is joined by Reese Witherspoon in an untitled series about TV morning shows, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project is set to hit the market in the coming weeks and is expected to be shopped around to premium cable networks and streaming services such as Netflix.
The series is based on original idea of former HBO head of drama, Michael Ellenberg, and his newly launched film and TV production company Media Res will lead the production. Jay Carson is signed on for the script while Steve Kloves will be the executive producer. Aniston, Witherspoon and Lauren Levy Neustadter (Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine Head of Film and TV), will also be credited as executive producers.
Witherspoon played Aniston’s younger sister on the blockbuster hit series Friends and they have been close over the years.
Just recently, Witherspoon received an Emmy nomination for HBO’s Big Little Lies. As for Aniston, she earned five Emmy nods and won an award for her portrayal as Rachel Green on Friends. She expressed her interest in making a small screen comeback in January.
“I’ve thought about [returning to TV] a lot. That’s where the work is,” Aniston told Variety. “That’s where the quality is. At this point in my career, I want to be part of wonderful stories, exciting characters, and also just having a good time.”
