Witherspoon is no stranger to television and is coming off the second season of HBO’s limited series “Big Little Lies,” while Aniston is an Emmy winner from “Friends” but has not had a series regular TV role since wrapping her run as Rachel on the mega-successful NBC comedy series.

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.

Mark Worthington (‘The Umbrella Academy’) eyes end to Emmy run as ‘the Susan Lucci of production designers’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“I’ve been nominated eight times — I’m kind of the Susan Lucci of production designers at this point,” Mark Worthington laughs in his exclusive interview with Gold Derby (watch the video above) in reference to the “All My Children” star who infamously waited until her 19th nomination before winning a Daytime Emmy Award for her performance in 1999. A past Emmy nominee for “Ugly Betty” and “American Horror Story,” as well as an Art Directors Guild Award winner for both, Worthington is now nominated at the Emmys for the pilot of “The Umbrella Academy” in the category of Best Contemporary Production Design.

It is a curious placement for a superhero show with post-apocalyptic scenes that is set “in an unnamed city” with a timeless design. Worthington justifies Netflix’s submission: “It’s alternate-timeline, but it’s more or less contemporary. Although

TV Shows Critics Hated to Say Goodbye To

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: What show was the hardest show for you to say goodbye to as a critic? Why?

Emily VanDerWerff (@tvoti), Vox

Like so many critics who came up professionally in the 2000s, I came up parallel to the rise and reign of ABC’s “Lost.” It was a show that sometimes infuriated me and sometimes annoyed me but always, always engaged me. Through most of the show’s run, I was scrambling to gain a toehold in the industry, but for its final season, I recapped the show for the Los Angeles Times and devoted everything I had to it. I know there were questionable decisions made in that final season, but bidding it farewell also felt like bidding farewell to a part of my life, and I have

ABC Seeking Big Provocative Soap, Light Crime Drama & Adult Comedy This Development Season

  • Deadline
In her first full development season, ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke will be pursuing the goal she set for herself when she joined ABC last December — to bring back female viewers to ABC and reclaim the title as No.1 network with women. She is looking to do that by developing shows that would attract women while also not alienating ABC’s male viewers.

Top priority is finding “a big, provocative soap,” Burke told Deadline. Provocative does not mean sexy, she was quick to clarify. Instead, the word refers to bold, loud storytelling. It could be a family soap but the setting also could be workplace or sci-fi, Burke said, pointing to past ABC hits Lost and Desperate Housewives as examples. Burke also is open to a franchise soap like ABC’s flagship drama, the venerable Grey’s Anatomy.

Also on the wish list for one-hour series is finding a strong “crimedy,

ABC Head Karey Burke Defends Broadcast’s Relevance: ‘We Know the Stakes Are High’

  • Variety
ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke came out in heavy defense of the broadcast network at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour on Monday, asserting its continued importance amid an industry discourse dominated by talk of pure-play streaming platforms and the traditional players launching their own subscription services.

“We know the stakes are high because broadcast really matters,” she said, adding that major networks can “move culture at a scale no other platform can.”

Touting the 150 million monthly viewers that ABC attracts across its platforms, Burke added: “And that is why brands still pay us a big premium to advertise on our air, and why competing streamers want to advertise on our air – we just won’t let them.”

On the marketing side, ABC invests “heavily” in making viewers aware of its programming, she said. Echoing Showtime programming head Gary Levine’s dig at the streamer on Friday, Burke also took a swipe at Netflix.

‘The Hunt’ Trailer: Betty Gilpin Is Playing The Most Dangerous Game In New Blumhouse Thriller

Robert Redford Will Be President in HBO's Watchmen and it Will Touch on Racism, Police Brutality, and More

Actor Robert Redford is set to star as… well, Robert Redford in the new HBO series Watchmen, that is being adapted by Damon Lindelof, from the comic books created by Alan Moore. Redford will play himself in what Lindelof describes as an “alt-history”, wherein Richard Nixon stayed in the presidency in the 1980’s, but died while in office, which was then handed down to Vice-President Gerald Ford, who lost re-election in 1992 to Redford. In this alternate universe timeline, Redford has remained in the presidency since then, and is still president in present day.

At this week’s Television Critics Association Panel (via FoxNews), Lindelof spoke a bit about the themes of the series, and the fact that this America has faced more conflict on American soil than that of cold-war era Russia, saying:

“What in 2019 is the equivalent of the nuclear standoff between the Americans and the Russians? It is race and the police.
