Storyline

After a fallout with their previous morning show co-host, the popular but #MeToo-scandal-ridden Mitch Kessler, a New York City TV station hires a new spunky journalist, the progressive and hotheaded southern girl Bradley Jackson, as the new co-host. The scheming station head manager Cory Ellison sees in her the chance to push his career further. The show's other popular co-host Alex Levy, disgruntled by the fact that she has to take in a newbie, tries to use this new situation to make her own power move and turn Bradley into an ally. Meanwhile, Mitch refuses to accept defeat and tries to take everyone in the station who knew about his sexual abuse scandal but said nothing down with him. Other characters include Chip Black, the show's cynical top producer and program organizer, Hannah Shoenfeld, the station's employee and Mitch's emotionally gutted silent victim, Yanko Flores, a romantic and the Morning Show's most popular reporter, Claire Conway, a British junior employee of the ...

Welcome back to TV Jennifer!
1 November 2019 | by freetafealSee all my reviews

What a fantastic return to form for Jennifer Aniston! Her ability to encapsulate a character right from the first episode with such depth, with an incredible supporting cast including a role that could only be played by an actor like Steve Carrol, the complexities of such an intensely debated topic as the MeToo movement, which has been so integral in allowing society to take that important step forward, while allowing narratives to take place that under different acting ability could very easily lost. Reese is exceptional in a role that feels formed to her.

I'm looking forward to seeing where this program about a program can take us!
