Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s Morning Show Drama Goes to Apple

Witherspoon in “Home Again

Huge TV news: Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s highly anticipated morning show drama has found a home, and it’s landed at an unexpected place. Apple snagged the as-yet untitled project with a straight-to-series two-season order, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. As expected, the star-studded series caused a bidding war.

In addition to starring, Witherspoon and Aniston will executive produce and co-own the show along with Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res company, which is producing for Apple. Twenty episodes are confirmed.

Described as “as an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning,” the series explores “the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual.”

While the project is based on an original idea by Ellenberg, Brian Stelter’s book “Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV” will serve as “additional background” for the show.

Witherspoon just had a super successful run on the small screen with HBO’s critically acclaimed murder-mystery “Big Little Lies.” It’s uncertain if the ratings hit will return for a second season. The Oscar winner won an Emmy for producing the adaptation of Liane Moriaty’s bestselling book, and took home an Oscar in 2006 for her role as June Carter Cash in “Walk the Line.” Aniston scored an Emmy in 2002 for playing Rachel Green in “Friends.” Witherspoon guest-starred in two episodes of the iconic sitcom in 2002 and played Rachel’s sister.

Besides “Big Little Lies,” “Wild” and “Gone Girl” are among Witherspoon’s producing credits. Aniston’s include “Cake” and “The Switch.”

Jay Carson (“House of Cards”) will serve as showrunner. He’s also exec-producing and writing the series. Directors have yet to be announced, but this female-led series needs some women at the helm.

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston’s Morning Show Drama Goes to Apple was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Napa Valley Film Festival Rises After Fires Devastate Region

Napa Valley Film Festival Rises After Fires Devastate Region
Watching as Northern California’s wine country became engulfed by flames that scorched 220,000 acres and claimed the lives of 42 people, Napa Valley Film Festival co-founders and directors Marc and Brenda Lhormer teetered on the brink of canceling this year’s fete.

“During the first days, we only were hearing and fearing the worst,” says Marc Lhormer of unfounded rumors that partner wineries and hotels had been destroyed. “Brenda and I actually left our home and, living out of a suitcase for nine nights, kept moving things forward.”

He adds that two days after the fires erupted, the couple gathered their team. “We went around the room asking if everyone, and their families and loved ones, was Ok, and we discussed how we could help each other. Then, we had to determine if we were all mentally and physically up for putting on the show, a show everyone had worked so hard on, full time, all

It's a Friends-aissance! Jennifer Aniston on Why New Generations Discovering Friends Today Is 'Quite Comforting'
It’s been 23 years since Friends premiered — and thanks to Netflix, which added all 10 seasons in high definition to its streaming service in 2015 — plenty of teens who weren’t even born when the iconic sitcom first aired on NBC are only just discovering it.

So how do the stars of the beloved series, which ran from 1994-2004, feel about the glorious Friends renaissance? People recently chatted with Jennifer Aniston in celebration of the launch of her new fragrance, Chapter One, and we couldn’t help but ask what she thought.

“A Friends-assance? That’s so nice,” said Aniston, 48, who played Rachel Green.

Reese Witherspoon Reveals Director Sexually Assaulted Her at 16

Reese Witherspoon Reveals Director Sexually Assaulted Her at 16
A lot of A list talent has come forward over the past two weeks to divulge details behind their own sexual harassment experiences in Hollywood following allegations against defamed producer Harvey Weinstein, who was accused of rape, molestation and other charges. The latest to speak out against this behavior, and share her own stories of abuse is beloved actress Reese Witherspoon, who started acting at a very young age. She found herself the victim of unwanted attention by an unnamed director at the age of 16. And she is only now opening up about those experiences.

Reese Witherspoon admits that she's had a hard time sleeping these past few days, as more and more women come out not only against Harvey Weinstein, but other well-known and wealthy individuals in the entertainment industry. She has been forced to remember what she calls 'the ugly truths' of her own past experiences.

Quote of the Day: Reese Witherspoon on Reliving Ugly Truths in the Wake of Weinstein Allegations

Witherspoon in “Big Little Lies

Reese Witherspoon is opening up about her own history of abuse in Hollywood. “[I feel] true disgust at the director who assaulted me when I was 16 years old and anger at the agents and the producers who made me feel that silence was a condition of my employment,” the Oscar winner said during her speech at Elle’s Women in Hollywood event yesterday, per The Hollywood Reporter. “And I wish I could tell you that was an isolated incident in my career, but sadly it wasn’t. I’ve had multiple experiences of harassment and sexual assault and I don’t speak about them very often,” she revealed.

Clearly impacted by the many allegations about Harvey Weinstein and her Hollywood peers’ decision to come forward with their own stories, the “Big Little Lies” producer and star decided to go public with hers. “This has been a really hard week for women in Hollywood, for women all over the world and a lot of situations and a lot of industries that are forced to remember and relive a lot of ugly truths,” she observed. “I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly and I find it really hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate a lot of the feelings that I’ve been having about anxiety, about being honest, the guilt for not speaking up earlier, for not taking action.”

Witherspoon continued, “After hearing all the stories these past few days and hearing these brave women speak up tonight about things that we’re kind of told to sweep under the rug and not to talk about, it’s made me want to speak up and speak up loudly because actually I felt less alone this week than I have felt in my entire career. I have just spoken to so many actresses and writers, particularly women, who have had similar experiences and many of them have bravely gone public with their stories. That truth is very encouraging to me and to everyone out there in the world because you can only heal by telling the truth.”

As painful as it was to revisit these experiences, Witherspoon seemed hopeful that doing so publicly would help bring much-needed attention to an issue that’s all too common. “I feel really, really encouraged that there will be a new normal,” she said. “For the young women in this room, life is going to be different because we have your back and it makes me feel better because, gosh, it’s about time. … I’m so sad that I have to talk about these issues, but I would be remiss not to.”

Witherspoon made her big screen debut with 1991’s “A Man on the Moon.” She won an Academy Award in 2006 for playing June Carter in “Walk the Line.” Her other credits include “Wild,” “Legally Blonde,” and “Election.” She can currently be seen in Hallie Meyers-Shyer’s “Home Again,” a romantic comedy about a recently separated woman who unexpectedly gets roommates.

Nora Johnson, Writer of ‘The World of Henry Orient,’ Dies at 84
Nora Johnson, who wrote the screenplay for “The World of Henry Orient” with her father, writer-director Nunnally Johnson, died Oct. 5 in Dallas. She was 84.

Her daughter, Marion Siwek, said she died of natural causes.

Johnson based the story on her novel about two schoolgirls who have a crush on a concert pianist, informed by her experiences at private school in New York. Peter Sellers played the pianist; the film also starred Angela Lansbury and Paula Prentiss. It also became a Broadway musical, “Henry, Sweet Henry.”

Her memoirs about her father and growing up in show business included “Flashback,” “You Can Go Home Again” and “Coast to Coast,” a memoir of her childhood shuttling between her journalist mother in New York and her Hollywood-based father. Nunnally Johnson was the writer and director of films including “The Three Faces of Eve” and “The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit” and screenwriter of “The Dirty Dozen.”

Reese Witherspoon Reveals She Was Sexually Assaulted by a Director When She Was 16 Years Old
Reese Witherspoon has revealed her own experiences with sexual harassment in Hollywood in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. During a powerful speech at this year’s Elle Women in Hollywood event in Los Angeles, where Witherspoon was one of eight honorees, the actress went on the record saying she first experienced harassment from a director when she was only 16 years old.

Venom Targets Veep Star Reid Scott in Mystery Role

  • MovieWeb
Sony Pictures' highly-anticipated Venom movie has a cast that keeps growing and growing, with Veep star Reid Scott entering negotiations for an unspecified role. It's possible that his character may have roots in the Marvel Comics, or that he could also be a brand new character created for this spin-off, but those details have not yet been made available. We reported last month that Venom production was delayed, with filming reportedly beginning on October 23 in both Atlanta and New York City. With the cast coming together the way it is, it's possible that filming may begin very soon.

‘Veep’ Actor Reid Scott in Talks to Join Tom Hardy’s ‘Venom’ (Exclusive)
Reid Scott is in talks to join the cast of Sony’s “Spider-Man” spinoff “Venom” starring Tom Hardy.

Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate are also on board, with Ruben Fleischer directing. Sony had no comment on the casting.

Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”), Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”), and Kelly Marcel will write the script for “Venom.” Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.

The studio has made it clear that Spider-Man will not be in these standalone films, but has left the door open for Venom to possibly appear in other “Spider-Man”-related movies. “Venom” hits theaters on Oct. 5, 2018.

Since its inception in 1988, the alien symbiote Venom has been one of “Spider-Man’s” most popular characters, making the film a top priority for Sony. The villain made his first big-screen appearance in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” where

SAG-AFTRA Re-Elects Clyde Kusatsu as National VP for Los Angeles
SAG-aftra delegates have re-elected veteran actor Clyde Kusatsu to a two-year term as national VP for the Los Angeles branch — the largest of the performers union.

Kusatsu, who lost the presidency of the Los Angeles local chapter to Jane Austin in August, won re-election Friday at the SAG-aftra biennial convention at the Sheraton Universal. The four -day event is closed to the news media.

Kusatsu has dozens of credits including a recurring role on “The Young and the Restless,” and is part of the ruling Unite For Strength faction, led by President Gabrielle Carteris.

Rebecca Damon won re-election to a two-year term as executive vice president of the performers union over Matthew Modine. The exec VP slot is the second-highest elected post in SAG-aftra and acts in the place of the president if the president is absent.

Six other national VPs were elected — Liz Zazzi, New York; Ilyssa Fradin, Mid-Sized Locals; Suzanne Burkhead, Small

Box Office Surge Ends as 3 Films Vie for Top Spot

Box Office Surge Ends as 3 Films Vie for Top Spot
New entry “American Made” (Universal) and holdovers “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” (20th Century Fox) and “It” (Warner Bros.). are basically tied at the top for weekend box office #1, with estimates placing all within $310,000. Any of the three could emerge on top when Sunday’s actual numbers are compiled after the weekend.

That’s good news for “It” in its fourth weekend (now headed even higher than the $325 million that seemed likely a couple days ago), more mixed for the opening of Tom Cruise’s latest film and the holdover for the expensive second release in the “Kingsman” franchise.

What is not good news is the sudden 20 per cent-plus drop in box office total revenues for the weekend. After three post-Labor Day stanzas where “It” propelled a strong resurgence that gave hope that the mediocre summer’s returns might improve, the current results suggest that the year will end down
