The first teaser for Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon’s upcoming Apple TV+ drama, “The Morning Show,” is bumming us out way more than any segment on the “Today” show ever has.

Starring Witherspoon, Aniston and Steve Carell, “The Morning Show” is a “high stakes drama that pulls back the curtain on early morning TV.” In the 1-minute video above, we don’t get to see Aniston, Witherspoon or Carell, but we hear their voices as they discuss the complications of being a journalist responsible for offering up cheery news to America each morning.

The drama will debut on Apple TV+ this fall — though Apple has yet to set a launch date or price for the streaming service.

“Morning Show,” based partly on CNN media reporter Brian Stelter’s book “Top of the Morning,” provides an inside look at the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning, exploring the unique challenges faced by the women (and men) who carry out this daily televised ritual. Along with Witherspoon and Aniston, who also executive produce, and Carell, the series stars Nestor Carbonell (“Bates Motel,” “Lost”), Mark Duplass (“The Mindy Project,” “The League”), Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Billy Crudup.

Per the tech giant, “Apple TV+, Apple’s new original video subscription service, will feature original shows, movies and documentaries, coming to the Apple TV app this fall. Apple TV+ subscribers will enjoy authentic stories with emotional depth and compelling characters from all walks of life, ad-free and on demand.”
