ICYDK: Multi-award winning The Morning Show explores the cutthroat world of morning news and the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning. Told through the lens of two complicated women working to navigate the minefield of high-octane jobs while facing crises in both their personal and professional lives. The Morning Show is an unapologetically candid drama that looks at the power dynamics between women and men, and women and women, in the workplace.
The previous season left off with the dramatic live broadcast of The Morning Show with newscasters Alex Levy and Bradley Jackson, played by Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon respectively, speaking out about the network covering up the sexual misconduct allegations within their working environment, when the feed was suddenly cut off.
Here, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who are also producers of the show, share their thoughts about the hot topics covered in Season 2 such as sexism, racism, cancel culture and the changing journalism landscape, as well as challenges in creating the show during the pandemic.
