There have been rumors that Jennifer Aniston‘s character on the Apple TV+ series The Morning Show is based on The Today Show‘s Katie Couric… and now she’s sharing her thoughts on the show!
The plot of the series follows the male co-host of a morning show who is accused of sexual misconduct, similar to the way Matt Lauer was when he was a co-host on The Today Show.
Katie, who hosted that morning show with Lauer for many years, opened up about the TV series on the podcast Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino.
Katie said she had “so many thoughts” while watching the show. She added, “I thought some of it was really interesting. I think the long-term impact and the serious devastation that results from certain behaviors was quite well represented, or quite well conveyed in that.”
“I think Jennifer Aniston is great. … I wish they had made her more charismatic because I think you need a certain ebullience to pull off a show like that,” she said about the star’s performance.
