The program is one of nine originals from Apple TV+ which entered into the TV streaming market in the early hours of November 1st.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JENNIFER ANISTON, SAYING: "I haven't necessarily felt that ageism has affected me only because I feel like I'm working more than I've ever worked.

The MeToo of it all - we're all kind of trying to find our way and understand this new normal.

And I think the show does a really good job of shedding a light on that.'' (SOUNDBITE) (English) JENNIFER ANISTON, ASKED ABOUT RETURNING TO TV, SAYING: ''Well, it wasn't really about TV versus film.

It was really the show - the idea that Michael came to the two of us about and I love morning talk shows and getting to learn about the world behind it is just fascinating.'' As well as starring in the show, Aniston and Witherspoon also executively produced it.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REESE WITHERSPOON, SAYING: ''I am, really so enormously grateful to have a partner like Jennifer.

I mean, to have someone who's known worldwide who's ready to tackle these big issues like MeToo and sexual harassment in the workplace and sexism and racism.

And it's all in this show.

So we really try to make sure the bar was really high and we really, we really aim for the stars.'' Apple's Chief Executive Tim Cook says it's the first "all-original" subscription video service.

iPhone's latest change helps users set Gmail as default email client

Tech giant Google has updated its latest version of Gmail, adding the option for it to become the default email option on iPhones. According to Mashable, the new option is in response to a change made by Apple to the new iOS 14, which dropped last week. At WWDC in June, Apple announced that users would be able to change their default web option from Apple's Safari browser and switch the Mail email service to non-Apple services. Until now, if the users opened a link, it would open in Safari. Or if one clicked on a person's email to send them a message, a new email would open in Mail. If a Gmail user wanted to send a person an email, the user would have to specifically open Gmail, compose a new message, and either copy and paste or type in their email. However, now, if one has made his/her default email client Gmail, and if he/she wants to go to a contact in the phone, they need to click on that person's email, which will lead to a new email addressed to that address will open in Gmail.
