Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are set to reunite on the small screen! The Hollywood stars, who played sisters on the beloved ‘90s sitcom Friends, are reportedly teaming up again for a new television drama.
Little is known about the untitled series except that it will explore “morning shows and the New York media scene,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Reese and Jennifer will pull double duty as stars and executive producers on the surefire hit show. In addition to its stellar cast, the series will mark Jennifer’s long-awaited return to the small screen following a two-decade absence. The actress has concentrated on movies since wrapping the tenth and final season of Friends in 2004.
The 48-year-old has expressed her interest in returning to television, if and when the right project came along. “I’ve thought about it a lot,” she told Variety. “That’s where the work is. That’s where the quality is. At this point in my career, I want to be part of wonderful stories, exciting characters, and also just having a good time.” The small screen was made even more desirable after Jennifer watched her husband Justin Theroux became a primetime star thanks to his role in the spooky HBO drama The Leftovers.
Unlike Jennifer who found stardom on television, Reese cemented herself as a small screen star earlier this year thanks to her role in the critically acclaimed HBO drama Big Little Lies (for which she earned an Emmy nomination). The mother of three’s successful streak is sure to continue with the help of a veteran like Jennifer.
