Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon's TV Series Just Found a Home & It's

Apple Earnings: iPhone Sales Up Even Before iPhone X Went On Sale

The show and Steven Spielberg's reboot of his "Amazing Stories" 1980s anthology series are the first two original dramas ordered by Apple and follow the hiring earlier this year of Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht to oversee video content. Ms. Aniston and Ms. Witherspoon are also executive producers of the show. Witherspoon and Aniston are also producing the project with former HBO executive Michael Ellenberg.

Following a bidding war, the untitled drama was picked up by Apple with a straight-to-series, two-season order for 20 episodes total.

The series is based on an idea from Ellenberg and will draw background material from CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter's 2013 book "Top of the Morning", which recounted the recent rivalry between NBC's "Today" and ABC's "Good Morning America".

Jay Carson (House of Cards) is writing, executive producing, and serving as showrunner for the series.

The company has made a handful of shows already, the most high-profile of which is probably a series version of "Carpool Karaoke", the popular bit from "The Late Late Show with James Corden".

A short time later, a group of responding officers found a single-car crash near the location of the initial traffic stop. The officer, identified as Jamie Cox, made a traffic stop in the area of State Street and Dawn Avenue at about 1 a.m.

Both Ms. Aniston and Ms. Witherspoon are represented by Creative Artists Agency.

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are heading to Apple! It's unclear if Apple will make the shows available by iTunes or another platform, and whether access will be based on a subscription or advertising-based model.

Premiere dates for Amazing Stories and the morning news show have not yet been determined.

Aniston told Variety she wanted to return to TV. Witherspoon, who has been active on the development side, won an Oscar for her role in Walk the Line and also scored a nomination for Wild. She is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.

Stelter is repped by ICM Partners.
