- The Morning Show to release on Apple TV+ in autumn
- Aniston, Witherspoon, Carell play cable news TV hosts
- New trailer only contains voice-over from principal cast
Apple has released the first teaser trailer for The Morning Show, the news drama starring the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell in the lead, alongside a supporting cast featuring Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), Billy Crudup (Almost Famous), Néstor Carbonell (Lost), and Mark Duplass (Togetherness). The Morning Show trailer doesn’t include a single peek at the characters being played by any of them. Instead, it features shots of the newsroom overlaid with voice-overs from Aniston, Witherspoon, Carell, and Crudup laying out their principles, what they’re fighting for, and the service they provide to audiences. Weirdly, Apple’s TV+ preview from March (below) had more footage of the characters.

The Morning Show teaser trailer opens in a dimly lit hallway, with a poster for the show-within-a-show visible in the left corner of the frame, featuring Carrell and Aniston’s characters. Alex (Aniston) is the first to chime in, as she says: “Good morning. I’m bringing you some sad and upsetting news. First and foremost…” before Mitch (Carell) chimes in: “I am a journalist. I can feel when the world needs me.” This all takes place while we get shots of Mitch Kessler’s office, where we see a few awards and a photo of Mitch with Alex. Alex then jumps in to remark: “Because, guess what, America loves me.”
