Steve Carell plays Mitch Kessler, a morning talk show host who is fired after accusations of sexual misconduct surface, in the new Apple TV+ series "The Morning Show." The cast, which also includes Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, told Yahoo Entertainment Carell's character is not based on Matt Lauer's experience with sexual misconduct accusations. "Unfortunately, and sadly there are so many different examples of this type of character out there right now," Carell said. Aniston added: "Nothing was specifically modeled after anyone in particular at all."
"The Morning Show" premieres Nov. 1 on Apple TV+.
