The premise of season one follows UBA network’s ‘The Morning Show’ star, Alex Levy played by Jennifer Anniston. The show follows Alex as she maneuvers the dismissal of her on-air partner of 15 years following a sexual misconduct scandal and fights to stay in the game with the rise of a fresh new anchor, Bradley Jackson, played by Reese Witherspoon. At the end of season 1, Alex has a dramatic exit from The Morning Show but it looks like she’s making a fierce comeback in season 2. The cast also includes Steve Carell, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Bel Powley, Karen Pittman, Desean Terry, Greta Lee, and Ruairi O’Connor.
