The successful Apple TV series ‘The Morning Show’ was much more than just work for Jennifer Aniston (51). The actress, who co-produced and played the role of Alex Levy, has stated in an interview with the Los Angeles Times that making this series was therapeutic for her.

“Some scenes felt lifelike to me and that sometimes took a while”

“Some scenes felt lifelike to me and that sometimes came in quite a bit. The Morning Show felt like twenty years of therapy, summarized in ten episodes. I am someone who always had the credo: ‘I’m fine, everything is fine’. But that’s not the case, everyone has moments when you think, “leave me alone.” To see that from an actress’s perspective was very interesting and educational, ”said Jennifer.

“During my career I have really had moments when I thought: ‘I don’t want to be here right now, I don’t want to be judged by people all the time and I don’t want to keep smiling for the photographers.”

The Morning Show highlights a daily American current affairs show, in which Jennifer is one of the presenters. Her male co-host, played by Steve Carell, is fired after it emerges that he has been guilty of years of sexual abuse in the workplace. The program was co-created by Aniston and colleague Reese Witherspoon, following on from the MeToo movement that started in the United States in recent years.

The second season of The Morning Show is currently in the works, although filming has been temporarily delayed due to the corona virus.
