Here are a few more recently published promotional interviews for The Morning Show:
Join Reese on the set of ‘The Morning Show’ as she catches up with some of the amazing women who helped bring the series to life.
Truth Be Told is a new crime-drama series for AppleTV+ that Reese executive produced through Hello Sunshine. Below is an interview with some of the other producers about how the show was developed – there is only a brief mention of Reese, but still an interesting look at the work put in.
‘Truth Be Told’: How the Apple TV+ Drama Came to Be, From Pitch to Screen
In Apple TV+’s “Truth Be Told,” Octavia Spencer plays Poppy Parnell, a true-crime podcaster who is compelled to reopen the murder case that made her a national sensation and comes face to face with the man she may have mistakenly helped to put behind bars. Relitigating the murder case via her podcast, Parnell contends with nearly 20 years of family secrets, deceit, and the San Francisco Bay Area’s powerful in order to get to the truth.
The series, which is created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman (“The Good Wife”) and premieres today, came about after general conversations on the value of true crime between executive producers Jenno Topping, Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter. Witherspoon recommended that Topping and Neustadter consider Kathleen Barber’s 2017 novel, “Are You Sleeping.”
“We read it and loved it, and especially loved its potential in terms of an adaptation,” Topping said. “Lauren then got involved as well. We had just done ‘Hidden Figures’ with Octavia, and together we found Nichelle and it just became a happy party.”
Besides the novel, Bay Area native Spellman’s attraction to the project started with the opportunity to explore the phenomena of podcasting and revisiting criminal cases. She also relished the idea of setting a series in the city where she was born and raised. The original story was set in Illinois, a state unfamiliar to Spellman.
“I’m a Bay Area girl, and I really wanted to show the diversity that I remembered,” she said. “Much of what I was fond of has kind of disappeared, or been altered after all the money that came in from Silicon Valley spread through San Francisco and then into the East Bay. So the series is a little bit of a love letter to how things used to be.”Continue reading this entry »

Ronan Farrow Hasn’t Seen The Morning Show Yet But ‘Thinks the World’ of Reese Witherspoon
Ronan Farrow is understandably busy at the moment, but he promises to stream a certain ripped-from-the-headlines series soon.
The Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist, 31, exposed alleged sexual misconduct and cover-ups at NBC when he published his book Catch and Kill last month.
The contents of Farrow’s best-seller mirror the fiction depicted in Apple TV‘s new drama series, The Morning Show.
Though he’s yet to tune into the show, which stars Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Anniston, the writer tells PEOPLE he intends to binge-watch it eventually.
“I got a truly lovely note from Reese Witherspoon who I think the world of and is doing a lot of great things for reading too,” he tells PEOPLE. “You know, she really supports books, and she posted about Catch and Kill when it came out and that was wonderful to see as someone who admires her.”
He added: “The moment I have free time, I will watch, because a lot of great people worked on that.”
While Catch and Kill digs into real-world allegations against former morning news anchor Matt Lauer, Morning Show includes a Lauer-like character played by Steve Carell, who is ousted from his long-running television gig when his misconduct comes to light.Continue reading this entry »
