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.
Reese attended the CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday night! After posing on the red carpet, Reese presented the CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year to Garth Brooks, then hung out with Nicole Kidman, Halsey, Gigi Hadid, Kacey Musgraves and Sheryl Crow during the show. Reese sparkled in a gorgeous one-shouldered little black dress from Atelier Versace, with Louboutin heels, Nikos Koulis earrings, and Martin Katz jewellery. Photos can be found in the Gallery:
‘From Book To Script To Screen,’ Reese Witherspoon Is Making Roles For Women
Actor Reese Witherspoon became famous in her 20s after starring in films like Election and Legally Blonde, but by the time she entered her 30s, the film landscape had shifted. DVD sales had shrunk and smaller, female-centered movies were in short supply. It was nearly impossible to find good leading roles for women.
Witherspoon began asking different movie studios what projects they were developing for women. “With the exclusion of one studio, everybody said ‘Nothing. Nothing with a female lead,’ ” she says.
So Witherspoon decided to start a production company and began adapting books with complex female characters into films and TV shows. The idea was to create better parts for women — and to help female authors get their stories sold.
Witherspoon’s company spearheaded the adaptation of Gone Girl, Wild and Big Little Lies, among other titles. Looking back, Witherspoon describes her shift into producing as “betting on myself.”

From Scratch, published on April 30 by Simon & Schuster, was selected as Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine May 2019 book pick.
From Scratch is a sweeping, autobiographical romance that follows an American woman as she falls in love with a Sicilian man while studying abroad in Italy then builds a life with him in the United States. When she unexpectedly loses him to illness, she is challenged to pull herself through grief so she can raise their daughter as they would have raised her together: with hope, joy and infinite love.
ocke’s sister Attica Locke (Empire, When They See Us), will serve as showrunner and executive producer with Saldana. Witherspoon and her producing partner, Lauren Neustadter will executive produce under Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine banner, along with Richard Abate, Jermaine Johnson and Will Rowbotham of 3 Arts Entertainment. Saldana’s sisters Cisely Saldana and Mariel Saldana will co-produce.
“Attica and I are honored to be adapting From Scratch with the visionary Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Neustadter, Richard Abate and the incredibly gifted Zoe Saldana,” said Tembi Locke. “We have a shared interest in championing stories that bring a rich tapestry of experiences to the screen. I am thrilled that this global love story has found a perfect home at Netflix.”
Said Zoe Saldana: “This is a profound true story of love and family, deprivation and nourishment, that needs to be brought to life on the screen as Tembi Locke brought it vividly to life for me on the page. We are grateful to Netflix and thrilled to be working with Reese, Lauren, Attica and 3 Arts on this wonderful project.”
Witherspoon said: “Tembi’s memoir is a raw and tender exhibition of life in all its pieces. She brings you into her love, her loss and her resilience with such vulnerability and strength. We immediately fell for Attica and Tembi’s vision and feel honored to have the opportunity to help bring it to life onscreen. We could not imagine more perfect partners for this than Zoe and her sisters and 3 Arts Entertainment, along with the incredible team at Netflix.”
Added Channing Dungey, VP Original Series at Netflix: “Between the Locke sisters and the Saldana sisters, I’ve never seen a show that’s more of a family affair,”Reese Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine have been producing really exciting content, and we’re thrilled to make this powerful and emotional series with them.”
