The Morning Show explores the cutthroat world of morning news and the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning. Season 3 left the fate of UBA once again up in the air after Alex (Aniston) manages to take down Paul Marks (Hamm) by logjamming the sale of UBA to his tech company, Hyperion. But now, it appears UBA will be merging with another media company to keep the network afloat, which could spell layoffs and restructuring to come in Season 4.

The series is executive produced by Witherspoon and Aniston, directed and executive produced by Mimi Leder, executive produced by Michael Ellenberg and produced by the studio Media Res, Hello Sunshine, a Candle Media company, and Echo Films. Charlotte Stoudt, who has a multi-year overall deal with Apple TV+ for scripted television series, serves as showrunner and EP. Leder executive produces and directs under a multi-year overall deal with Apple TV+.

Cotillard became the second French actress to ever win an Academy Award and the first to win an acting award for a performance in the French language in 2018 for her performance as Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose.

Cotillard can currently be seen starring in Mona Achache’s docudrama, Little Girl Blue. Based on true events from the director’s own life, following the death of her mother (Cotillard), when Achache discovers thousands of the matriarch’s photos, letters and recordings – these buried secrets make her disappearance even more of an enigma. For her performance, Cotillard was nominated for a César Award in the category of Best Actress.

Later this year, she will be seen in Ellen Kuras’ Lee alongside Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Andrea Riseborough and Josh O’Connor.

Cotillard is repped at Agence Adequat in France and CAA in the U.S.
