When The Morning Show first debuted with the launch of Apple TV+ in November, there was no doubting that the star-studded ensemble about a daytime talk show was really the Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston show.

Jun 27, 2020   Comments Off on ‘Succession,’ ‘The Morning Show’ Bosses on Writing About the Media and Power #TheMorningShow

The media can’t get enough when it comes to talking about the media — which is why, perhaps, its obsession extends to fictionalized takes on the business as well.
