Well this news is a tad exciting. After ten years since winning our hearts as Rachel on Friends, Jennifer Aniston is heading back to the small screen for a new TV series.
This time Jen will be starring with her pal Reese Witherspoon in a new HBO series, yet to be titled, about morning television. It’s believed the pair will play opposing morning show hosts battling it out to win the ratings. As a former morning TV producer, I am loving this angle! There is lots of action in the world of morning TV; the constant battle for number one, the endless crusade for the best guests, always striving to be the first with everything – all while dealing with lots of big personalities (and egos!). I can’t wait to see how this plays out, and with the amount of breakfast TV hours these ladies have accumulated, it’s safe to say there will be some truth behind it.
Jen and Reese have of course been seen on the small screen together before, Reese played Rachel’s younger sister in Friends in the show’s 2000th episode.
The project is still in the very early stages and hasn’t been brought by a network yet but is being shopped around by former HBO head of drama Michael Ellenberg. Jay Carson, whose credits include shows such as House of Cards, is behind the show’s script. Reese and Jen are listed as Executive Producers.
The big question with this show is…after inspiring millions of women around the world to go and get themselves the ‘Rachel haircut’ with Friends, what hair style will we be asking for when this show airs?!
