Hasan Minhaj joined the cast of "The Morning Show"
"The Morning Show" is one of the most awarded (although, as it turned out recently, not the most popular) series produced for Apple TV+. Currently, work is underway on its second season. According to Deadline, Hasan Minhaj will join the cast.
Hasan Minhaj is a comedian known primarily for his performances in the satirical program "The Daily Show" (whose host, Jon Stewart, is currently working on a new program for Apple TV+) and his original talk-show "Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj". The role in "The Morning Show" will be his first performance in a high-budget drama series. He will play the role of Eric, a new charismatic TV presenter who is quickly advancing his career.
"The Morning Show" series is about the work of people creating the so-called breakfast TV. According to the original plans, the second season was to appear in the Apple TV+ catalog this fall, but work on it had to be suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The scriptwriters used the delays to make changes to the plot of the series to better reflect the current situation in the world.
