Apple’s upcoming TV streaming service has added another television legend to its roster of stars for its inaugural season — and he’s kind of a big deal.
Steve Carell, who has entirely eschewed TV roles since The Office went off the air in 2013, will return to television to team up with Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston for one of the Apple service’s original programs.
As said in The Hollywood Reporter, the yet-untitled show is about working for a Good Morning America–type morning program and is based off of Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.
Carell’s character is said to be one of the morning show’s anchors who “is struggling to maintain relevance in a changing media landscape.”
Witherspoon and Aniston have not shared a screen since Witherspoon guest starred as Aniston’s character Rachel’s younger sister on the hit sitcom Friends; they will both executive produce the Apple show through their respective production companies.
