Reese Witherspoon and Kristen Wiig Are Creating a New Comedy Show for Apple
It's based on a series of short stories being released this spring.
Reese Witherspoon fans rejoice, because you don’t have to wait for Big Little Lies season two to get more of your favorite star.
The actress took to Instagram last week to formally announce a new television show she's working on with Apple, starring and co-produced by Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig. The 10-episode comedy series will be called You Think It, I’ll Say It, based on an upcoming collection of short stories from author Curtis Sittenfeld that cover topics ranging from relationships to assumptions about class and gender roles, and Witherspoon hinted on Instagram that fans may be able to expect a guest appearance from her on the show.
“Total dream come true to be working with Kristen Wiig on a comedy for Apple,” Witherspoon wrote on her Instagram post. “There might be a special guest appearance by someone you know because #FOMO is real!”
Witherspoon’s media company, Hello Sunshine, will produce Apple’s first half-hour scripted comedy show, and the show will be Wiig’s first regular television role since she left SNL in 2012.
Apple can’t seem to get enough of Witherspoon, because You Think It, I’ll Say It is one of three television projects they are working on with the star, including an unnamed morning television drama she’ll be starring in with Jennifer Aniston and Are Your Sleeping, a drama series that she is set to executive produce that stars Octavia Spencer.
It’s hard to imagine how Witherspoon will juggle her soon-to-be-hit shows with Apple, her clothing line Draper James, and a second season of Big Little Lies, but one thing is for sure—we can’t wait to see what she’ll take on next!
