Jennifer Aniston to return to TV screens

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston had previously worked together in two episodes of FRIENDS

Little is known about the untitled series except that it will explore "morning shows and the NY media scene", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

News of the project, which first appeared in The Hollywood Reporter, comes at an early stage: A script by Jay Carson (House of Cards) has yet to be written, and the project has not been shopped to networks yet.

Hollywood superstars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are teaming up to become a TV powerhouse.

The show marks Aniston's first return to television since Friends, although the actress has made guest appearances on shows like 30 Rock and Cougar Town.

For Witherspoon, it's set to be yet another success following her brilliant performance as Madeline Martha Mackenzie in Big Little Lies.

The package is expected to be offered to premium cable networks like HBO and streaming services like Netflix.

The 48-year-old has expressed her interest in returning to television, if and when the right project came along.
