Apple TV shows

Back in July, we found out that Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon were planning to reunite (after Witherspoon’s brief guest stint on Friends) to star in a television drama about the cutthroat world of morning TV shows. Apple was among the many potential buyers to be interested, and now the tech giant has officially given the untitled series a two season order as part of their foray into original programming.

Big Little Lies season 2

Big Little Lies is one of the best things I saw on television this year, and Emmy voters agreed with that assessment: the show won eight trophies at the most recent ceremony, taking home prizes for Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Lead Actress for Nicole Kidman (who did some of the best work of her career in the show).

Whispers of a second season began almost immediately after the first season ended, leaving many viewers conflicted: the first season wrapped up so well…could they possibly be able to top themselves by coming back for more? While HBO has yet to officially announce production on the start of Big Little Lies season 2, a new report says that the gang is getting back together again to head back to Monterey. And now star Reese Witherspoon has dropped out of a planned movie, so there’s another piece of evidence pointing toward the inevitability of a second season.

According to a new report, the company has set their sights on a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories and a Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston morning show comedy as their potential splashy debut into the high-competition world of streaming TV.

a wrinkle in time trailer

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay, the director of Selma and Middle of Nowhere, has a great grasp of drama that, arguably, not a lot of directors making $100 million movies possess. Her name on Disney’s adaptation of Madeline L’Engle‘s 1962 novel “A Wrinkle in Time” has us excited. If one director could make Meg’s journey through the universe have both emotion and spectacle, it’s DuVernay.

Home Again trailer

Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon has another comedy coming up. The last two comedies she starred in, Hot Pursuit and This Means War, weren’t embraced as warmly as Sweet Home Alabama or Legally Blonde, but her next film, Home Again, which is Hallie Meyers-Shyer‘s directorial debut, looks more grounded than her last two comedies.

Home Again Trailer - Reese Witherspoon

Over the past few years, Reese Witherspoon has taken on an eclectic batch of projects like the animated musical comedy Sing, Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Inherent Vice, an Oscar-nominated turn in Wild, and an impressive recent turn in the intriguing HBO series Big Little Lies. But now she’s going back to the well with a new romantic comedy, but this one comes from the offspring of two filmmakers best known for their work in the genre.

Home Again stars Reese Witherspoon as a 40-year old woman named Alice, recently separated from her husband, who decides to start her life anew by moving back to her hometown in Los Angeles. Choosing to live a little more spontaneously, she allows three young filmmakers to crash at her place for a bit, which creates all sorts of new surprising relationships.
