Jennifer Aniston is to return to the small screen after more than a decade away, in her first regular role since ‘Friends’, in a series in collaboration with fellow star Reese Witherspoon about morning television shows and the wider New York media scene.

The series, currently untitled but headed up by former HBO exec Michael Ellenberg, is to be the subject of a bidding war in the coming weeks and is expected to be shopped around to streaming services as well as the premium cable networks. Given the heavyweight names attached to the project, it is expected to get serious interest from multiple parties, industry insiders are saying, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ellenberg’s newly formed Media Res company will be spearheading the project, with ‘House of Cards’ producer Jay Carson attached to write the script. Witherspoon and Aniston will also have executive production roles, with Witherspoon producing through her Hello Sunshine production company.

A Wrinkle in Time Trailer


Time is an extraordinarily complicated thing which does not always behave in the way you might expect. In fact, 13-year-old Meg Murry (Storm Reid), her brother Charles (Deric McCabe) and her friend Calvin (Levi Miller) are about to discover that there's a lot more to the universe in which they live than they could possibly have imagined.

Haunted by the mysterious disappearance of her scientist father Alex (Chris Pine), Meg finds herself at the home of three women named Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Which (Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey); women who may seem like ordinary neighbours at first, but are in fact supernatural beings with the ability to transport themselves through time and space.

They offer to send the children to space so that Meg can seek out her father, and find out what's really out there. Unfortunately, there's a darkness that has engulfed Mr Murry, and it is threatening to consume the entire universe. Meg is the only person with the ability to bring the light back, so she must release her inner warrior and be braver and smarter than she's ever had to be before.

Reese Witherspoon Wants To Change The Face Of Hollywood With Female-Driven Films


Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is big on female representation in cinema, as she explained during a Produced By panel in Los Angeles. The Oscar winner has made a concentrated move towards production in recent years, having worked on films like Gone Girl and Wild, but she finds that it’s a constant struggle to find projects with well-rounded, interesting parts for women.

Reese Witherspoon
Witherspoon has very strict standards for the kinds of films she produces.

Still, Witherspoon explained why she thinks it’s just a reasonable expectation for filmmakers: “Women make up 50 percent of the population, so we should make up 50 percent of the [roles and stories] in movies. It’s not a crazy thought, it’s just a representation of reality."

'Hot Pursuit' Stars Reese Witherspoon And Sofia Vergara Admit An All-Female Production Team Is More Fun


Reese Witherspoon Sofia Vergara

The release of the Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon starrer Hot Pursuit may have caught movie-goers by surprise, but the pairing falls squarely within the “I didn’t even know how much I needed this until now” category.

Academy Award winner Witherspoon, also one of the film's producers, plays an uptight police officer who has to protect the more outgoing widow of a drug boss, played by Colombian-born Vergara. By the synopsis alone, we can lump this in with the kind of cop comedy we’ve seen with Bad Boys, Showtime and, on the “female-driven” front – because that’s a genre now –  Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s 2013 offering, The Heat.

Reese Witherspoon
Witherspoon produced and starred in the female-driven flick.
