Buick taps Reese Witherspoon to narrate its vision of an electric future
American actress Reese Witherspoon is voicing her support for automobile brand Buick by narrating ‘Dream with Us,’ a futuristic vision of life in a hi-tech utopia.
Both parties are building a deep relationship with Buick, partnering with Witherspoon’s media company Hello Sunshine to develop women-first messaging, starting with a sneak peek at the Buick Wildcat EV concept vehicle.
In the piece, Witherspoon narrates the technological marvels available to Buick drivers of the future including autonomous parking, the ability to change vehicle color to match your clothing and the use of augmented reality (AR) windshields.
Molly Peck, vice-president, Buick and GMC marketing, said: “We are very excited to continue our work with Hello Sunshine, a company that shares our vision of empowering and celebrating women.
“With the largest percentage share of female buyers in the auto industry, we know that more and more women are making vehicle-buying decisions and we’re thinking creatively about how to offer experiences tailored to them.Continue reading this entry »
Here are episodes 1-3 of Reese’s new content series Say Oui To Me:
Oui by Yoplait teams with Reese Witherspoon and Eve Rodsky to embolden women
A new content series created by General Mills-owned Oui by Yoplait – in partnership with Reese Witherspoon’s media company and best-selling self-help author Eve Rodsky – follows the stories of three real women embracing their creative sides and making time for themselves.
French-style yogurt brand Oui by Yoplait today announced a new partnership with Hello Sunshine, actress Reese Witherspoon’s media firm. The goal? To uplift women and encourage them to ‘Say Oui’ (‘yes’ in French) to themselves and live intentionally.
‘Say Oui’ will center around a new video series featuring Witherspoon, who will star alongside Eve Rodsky, the best-selling author of Fair Play and Find Your Unicorn Space – books designed to help women set meaningful goals, rediscover their creativity, go after what they want and live more balanced lives.
Part of a multi-year partnership, the series will see Witherspoon and Rodsky help real women in different chapters of their lives to realign their priorities and cultivate creativity. The series tells the inspiring stories of three women: a stay-at-home mom makes time to pursue her passion for painting; a woman finds everyday hope and joy in ballroom dancing; another takes a leap of faith and tries out rock climbing.
“I know firsthand how difficult it can be to carve out time to make space for yourself,” Witherspoon said in a statement shared with The Drum. “This partnership and video series are so important as they will inspire women to find their creative passions and say ‘yes’ to themselves every day.”Continue reading this entry »
‘The Morning Show’ Season 3: Reese Witherspoon Reveals New Jon Hamm Character Details; Cory And Bradley’s Arc Will Be “Really Interesting”
he addition of The Morning Show’s newest cast member Jon Hamm has “everybody excited.” Emmy-nominee Reese Witherspoon said Friday [August 12th] during an FYC event at The Edition hotel in West Hollywood.
As she prepared to begin production that same day, Witherspoon discussed Hamm joining for Season 3 as media mogul Paul Marks. “I might have gotten a lot of phone calls from my friends when they announced Jon Hamm,” she said.
“He is the greatest,” she added. “It’s such a good part too. You’re just going to get the full Hamm. Wait, that didn’t sound right,” she laughed.
“He is a very complex character,” she continued. “He’s a media mogul and he gives Billy Crudup a run for his money, which I think is the most fun part too, because Billy could eat a scene like I’ve never seen somebody eat a scene, and Hamm gets to come in and give him a great foil.”
“It’s Alien vs. Predator,” she joked.
The Morning Show follows the professional and personal lives of employees of media conglomerate UBA, specifically, its morning show hosts Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) and Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon), with ousted anchor Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), news division president Cory Ellison (Crudup), host Laura Peterson (Julianna Margulies) and journalist Maggie Brener (Marcia Gay Harden) among others.Continue reading this entry »
Filming for The Morning Show season 3 started this month, and there are some new cast additions, plus confirmation of stars returning:
Jon Hamm Joins Apple TV+’s ‘The Morning Show’
Don Draper is heading to UBA.
Jon Hamm is joining season three of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show.
Hamm, fresh from starring in Top Gun: Maverick, will play Paul Marks, a corporate titan who sets his sights on UBA, pulling Billy Crudup’s Cory, Jennifer Aniston’s Alex and Reese Witherspoon’s Bradley into his powerful orbit.
The third season of the drama series, which will see Charlotte Stoudt serve as showrunner, goes into production later this month.
It means that Hamm, who is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Commercial as part of a sarcastic ad that highlights that he has never starred in a project for Apple, finally joins the tech giant’s on-screen family.
The Morning Show is coming off a number of its own Emmy noms including Witherspoon for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and Crudup for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, which he won for season one and Marcia Gay Harden for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.
The series is produced by Media Res, Hello Sunshine and Echo Films. It is exec produced by Witherspoon, Aniston, Stoudt, Mimi Leder, Michael Ellenberg, Kristin Hahn and Lauren Neustadter.
The second season, which premiered in September 2021, ended with Aniston’s Alex contracting Covid after visiting Steve Carrell’s Mitch Kessler in Italy with the virus spreading through New York, forcing the staff to get ready to produce the show remotely. Elsewhere, Crudup’s Cory confessed his love for Witherspoon’s Bradley, who is dating Laura Peterson, played by Julianna Margulies.Continue reading this entry »
Luke Wilson Reveals Why He Thinks Reese Witherspoon Might Be “Waiting” on Legally Blonde 3
It’s not time to use legal jargon in our everyday lives again? We might have to object.
Legally Blonde became an instant smash when the film—starring Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis and Jennifer Coolidge—debuted in 2001, and it’s 2003 sequel didn’t disappoint. So, naturally fans were far from seriously disturbed when Reese confirmed in 2020 that Legally Blonde 3 was, indeed, in the making.
As for where the third installment stands now? Luke—who played Reese’s love interest, Emmett, in the films—gave fans an honest update.
“I think I know as much as you all,” he said during the Aug. 18 episode of Good Morning America. “But we did have a Zoom-call get-together last summer where the whole cast—Jennifer, Matthew and Selma—all got together and talked, so it really was great to see everybody, but Reese is such a sharp individual, I think she’s probably just waiting for the script to be right and the time to be right.”
And it turns out, fans aren’t the only ones ready to revisit the bend the snap. “It would be really fun to make another movie,” Luke continued. “It seems to be one of those movies that gets handed down from mothers to daughters and so forth.”
Reese’s on-screen husband isn’t the only co-star that has expressed their excitement over another movie.Continue reading this entry »
Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine Expands Into U.K., Hires Sarah Lazenby to Lead New Unscripted Division
Hello Sunshine, the production company founded by Reese Witherspoon, is set to shine some of its rays across the Atlantic.
The company, which has been behind HBO’s Big Little Lies, Apple TV+’s The Morning Show and Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere, was last year acquired by Kevin Mayer and Tom Staggs’ Candle Media in a deal valuing it at $900 million. Now it has unveiled its first international expansion with the launch of an unscripted division in the U.K. And while exact details are under wraps, Hello Sunshine’s new U.K. division is already developing its first production, a project with British network Channel 4.
Sarah Lazenby, who was formerly head of features and formats at Channel 4, where she commissioned shows including The Great British Bake Off, will oversee operations as executive vp, unscripted U.K. Lazenby, who most recently produced HBO’s Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, will report to Hello Sunshine’s head of unscripted Sara Rea.
“We are thrilled to expand our global mission of innovative, unscripted, female-led storytelling to the U.K.,” said Rea, who joined in 2020 when Hello Sunshine acquired her SKR Productions. “Sarah Lazenby is perfectly poised to lead the charge, as her talent, passion, and sensibility for great storytelling, couldn’t be more in sync with our mission. This is a strategic and exciting moment for us as a company as we continue building upon our trusted relationship with talent and viewers around the world.”
While Hello Sunshine may be better known for its scripted output, its unscripted output includes Netflix’s Get Organized, while it is currently producing country music talent show My Kind of Country for Apple TV+ and To Paris With Love, an unscripted romantic comedy feature for Roku.
“Hello Sunshine’s unique global brand and inspirational mission to change the way women walk through the world through storytelling is one I have admired for quite some time,” said Lazenby. “It’s a dream come true to join the talented team and I look forward to bringing the sunshine to the U.K. by creating the next generation of joyous and entertaining formats.”
Hello Sunshine isn’t the only major company making new inroads into the U.K. Earlier this year, A24 opened its first overseas office in London, poaching two top BBC execs in the process.
