Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston's untitled drama series about a morning talk show has landed at Apple with a two-season straight-to-series order, the company announced on Wednesday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Apple nabbed the rights to the coveted project after it sparked intense interest from multiple outlets over the summer, and has already given the show a two-season order.

However, while details about the morning-show project are vague, given the setting of New York City and the cutthroat world of television news, the show will likely be fairly adult in content. It's not yet clear what parts Aniston and Witherspoon will be playing, but considering that both actresses have the charisma to be anchors IRL, it wouldn't be surprising if the duo takes on highly-visible roles as morning show hosts. Witherspoon, who is coming off the award-winning Big Little Lies, played Aniston's little sister on Friends.

ET confirmed that the pair would co-star in the series about TV morning shows in July.

Apple hasn't said where people will be able to watch its shows, though the company hopes to release its first slate in 2019, Bloomberg reported in October.

Media Res will produce the series for Apple, with founder Michael Ellenberg billed as an executive producer.

Stelter is a consultant on the drama, and Jay Carson ("House of Cards") is writing the pilot and is an executive producer along with Witherspoon and Aniston.

The new series marks a TV reunion for its stars, and Witherspoon seems thrilled. Their other series, Amazing Stories, comes from Steven Spielberg and Bryan Fuller.

Apple's programming efforts are being overseen by Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, who joined the company from Sony Corp.in June. Amblin Television's Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey and Hart Hanson exec produce the drama from Universal Television.
