The Morning Show is an American drama television series created by Jay Carson. The series was filmed for Apple TV + 1 and was sponsored by Apple Corporation.

The script is based on the book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, written by CNN journalist and host Brian Stelter. The writers of the series took as a basis for the plot the firing of NBC host Matt Lauer, who was accused of sexual assault in 2017.

The Morning Show attracts with its cast. It stars Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell. Thanks to them and the amount of intrigue in the plot, the series received a high rating.

The main character of the comedy-drama series The Morning Show is Alex Levy, who works in television and hosts a top-rated morning show. Levy's show has high ratings and is popular with a wide variety of segments of the population. Many people even believe that Alex's program strongly impacts society, and it is a former American television news anchor.

The action begins when Mitch Kessler, Alex's on-air partner, is fired after fifteen years of successful work because of the sexual abuse scandal. From this moment, Alex understands that any wrong move can lead to the show shut down. Alex does not want to lose her job as the country's main news leader. But Bradley Jackson, a haphazard field reporter with impulsive decisions, led Alex to a new television news world.

What is also interesting for the production of one series, Apple allocated about 15 million dollars. Usually, such expenses go to the creation of special effects or large-scale scenes. In the case of The Morning Show, a large part of the budget was spent on the fees of two actresses, who also acted as producers of the series. Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon both received $2 million per episode, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It's pretty funny when you consider that one of the show's main themes is about greed in the infotainment industry.
