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 ...

A study in tension
29 December 2019 | by deanbean317See all my reviews

Just one night after my wife and I discussed what a group of stinkers Jennifer Aniston has gotten herself into, we stumbled upon this absolute GEM of a show. From the first episode to the last the tension from episode to episode is literally so thick you can cut it with a knife. The silent moments in this show scream like no other that I've seen. There is no fat in this show...every piece is essential for the show to work, from the marquee stars to the secondary leads to what some may consider bit parts. No one is expendable. Not to overuse the standard cliches, but Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Reese Witherspoon, Billy Crudup and the rest of the cast are a tour de force and never hit a false note. What I found most refreshing was, even with a subject as politically charged as the #metoo movement, the writers treated the subject in a purely subjective manner, giving us the whos and whys and letting us make up our own minds and form or own conclusions...something the actual news seems unable or unwilling to do today. I have no idea how these characters will carry their stories over to a second season, but I'll be there when they do! Bravo Apple+!
