Reese Witherspoon’s dance card looks sudden very full.
The Oscar-winning actress – who recently signed to reiterate her highly ambitious plans choice Character, Tracy Flick, in a Paramount+ sequel to the 1999 film – has signed a deal to direct a new series for Prime Video.
Per Deadline, the half-hour comedy titled All stars, has received an order for two seasons directly related to the series. That Teddy Lasso-esque satire stars Witherspoon as a former cheerleader who sneaks through to England to teach a ragtag group of students the art of cheerleading. Crazy ex girlfriend Co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna serves as creator/showrunner.
What does all this mean for the future of Witherspoon’s current TV appearance, The morning show, which will return with Season 3 next year? According to Deadline, however, Witherspoon doesn’t have a deal for a possible fourth season of the Apple TV+ drama All stars reportedly doesn’t rule them out continuing the show (should it continue beyond Season 3).
TVLine has reached out to an Apple TV+ representative for comment.
With reference to All starsWitherspoon says she was “pulled by the idea of watching an American woman come and introduce the very American sport of cheerleading to a group of young women in the UK,” adding, “I love that this show is done with real heart is filled, deep joy and the power of teamwork.”
