The series, which has already received a two-season and 20-episode order and created by Michael Ellenberg (The Leftovers), will follow the lives of the people who wake up before dawn and deliver the morning talk shows on TV. Carell is set to portray Mitch Kessler, a morning show anchor who is struggling to maintain relevance in the evolving world of media.

The 56-year-old actor has focused more on his theatrical career since departing The Office in 2011, starring in against-type dramatic performances that have earned him critical acclaim, including his Oscar-nominated role in 2014’s Foxcatcher, 2017’s Last Flag Flying and this year’s family drama Beautiful Boy starring alongside Oscar-nominated Timothée Chalamet, which just hit theaters earlier this month.

The upcoming drama will also mark Aniston’s return to television for the first time in 15 years since starring in one of the main roles on the hit NBC sitcom Friends, with the actress also having chosen to focus on film roles including the comedies Horrible Bosses and its sequel and Office Christmas Party and is set to star alongside Adam Sandler in the upcoming Netflix comedy Murder Mystery, marking their second collaboration after the 2011 comedy Just Go With It.
