"The Morning Show," Apple TV+'s upcoming series surrounding the world of morning news, has piqued the interest of many due to its impressive cast. Leading the way are Jennifer Aniston, who will be playing Alex Levy, and Reese Witherspoon, taking on the role of Bradley Jackson, with Steve Carell, Mark Duplass, and Nestor Carbonell also set to make appearances.

With the two actresses taking the reins, they knew that a certain level of research would need to be conducted in order to appropriately play the parts. What did they do in order to prepare for the roles?

When speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Aniston revealed that she visited the set of "Good Morning America" to do shadow work in order to get a glimpse into the everyday world of morning news.

"What a crazy world! From 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. it's like a ghost town, and then slowly all the lights start turning on and all the sounds get louder and louder, and then all of a sudden it's this mad, insane, well-oiled machine and everyone's somehow calm," she said.

Additionally, the former "Friends" actress also referenced a conversation she had with "CBS This Morning" host Gayle King, as well as a dinner with former "ABC World News" host Diane Sawyer as being particularly helpful when it came to learning the ropes. During those conversations, she revealed that she asked questions regarding how they balance sleep and keeping a personal life, along with why they continued to do the job for as long as they have.

As for Witherspoon, she said she spent quite a bit of time with news producers in order to see how things are really done. However, one thing that surprised her during her study of the field was "how honest a lot of the female anchors were" with both her and Aniston.

"I think most people would find it shocking that women in that position, of what we perceive as power, are looked at as expendable," the "Legally Blonde" actress shared, adding, "Women who've worked so hard to become incredible journalists and to ascend to a position of what seemed like power are relatively powerless."

As for now, fans will just have to wait to see how their newfound insight translated into the work they ultimately produced for the upcoming project.
