Pick of the Day

The Morning Show, Apple+

Based on Brian Stelter's 2013 book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, the first season followed Morning Show host Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) as she struggled to figure out her next steps after her longtime cohost Mitch (Steve Carell) was fired following claims of sexual misconduct.

Bradley (Reese Witherspoon), a young outspoken journalist, was brought into the just as everything was turned upside down.

At the end of the first season, Alex realised that she was being pushed out of the network because of her age, so she and Bradley decided to stray off-script during a live broadcast to expose the culture at their network.

The second season will also introduce new characters, including Julianna Margulies‘ Laura Peterson, who is a top journalist and a mentor to Bradley.

Last week’s opening episode of this latest show from Paul Abbott was well good. The key characters are established, it looks great, it’s a bit cheeky, and rattles along at a cracking pace.

This week, Wolfe (Babou Ceesay) and Maggy (Naomi Yang) come across the unearthly sight of a car planted firmly in the ground like an obelisk, having plunged from a bridge above.
