Reese Witherspoon and her new costar Julianna Margulies were hard at work on Wednesday as they filmed a scene for their Apple TV+ series The Morning Show.
The 44-year-old Legally Blonde star was spotted out in a courtyard with the Julianna as they had a brief conference between takes.
Reese, who plays a newly instated co-host on a fictional morning news show for the series, looked the part with a classy navy blue blazer and black slacks.

She had her arms crossed to guard against the breeze, which whipped back her delicate blonde locks.
Julianna was dressed more conservatively in a long black overcoat and had her raven tresses tied back in a bun.
The 54-year-old ER star joined The Morning Show for its second season in a recurring role as the news anchor Laura Peterson.
Also joining the series this season will be former Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj, along with High Maintenance and Russian Doll actress Greta Lee and Irish actor Ruairi O’Connor.

The Morning Show’s first season began with one of the lead anchors (played by Steve Carrell) being fired from the program for sexual harassment.
Jennifer Aniston stars as his co-host, Alex Levy, who tries to take over the dominant position on the show, while Reese stars as the risk-taking field correspondent Bradley Jackson, who is bumped up to co-host to fill the empty spot.
Now it seems the two women will also have to contend with a power struggle from Julianna’s character at the fictional UBA network.
Reese has expanded to producing in recent years, even for projects that she doesn’t appear in, like the critically acclaimed Ben Affleck–starring thriller Gone Girl, and both she and Jennifer are executive producers on the series.
