Jennifer Aniston Is Making a Million-Dollar Comeback On The Small Screen With This New Apple TV Show
If you ask anyone to identify the most beloved TV sitcom from the 90s, they are most likely to name the show Friends. The show, which featured six amazing characters (and actors), aired for around ten years before concluding in the year 2014. However, the cast is still benefitting from the show, earning millions every year in royalties for every deal the show has signed with major media distribution companies.
Not all of them have been as successful after Friends ended, which is evident by the fact that, except for Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston, we haven’t seen them all that much on TV or in films. By far, Jennifer has been the most successful among her co-stars, raking in an impressive $220 million in net worth as of 2018. In comparison, by 2018, her second-richest Friends co-star Courtney had only $120 million to her name.
Aniston Becoming Richer
If you thought Jennifer had put brakes on her earnings spree, you are mistaken. The celebrity has had a wonderful film career and hasn’t stopped making movies yet. Now, according to reports, she has also signed on to work for an Apple TV+ series called The Morning Show, alongside actress Reese Witherspoon and the amazingly hilarious Steve Carell.
Fans of Aniston would be thrilled to find out that their favorite TV actress, who delivered excellence while performing the character of Rachel on Friends, is returning to the small screen as a regular on a show. Of course, only time will tell whether this new show has the potential to surpass Friends in both quality and popularity, however, Aniston is already making a lot of money from it thanks to her incomparable fame.
For the final season episodes of Friends, all of the cast members, including Aniston, were paid around a million dollars per episode, making them the highest-paid TV stars in history. Hence, it only makes sense that Aniston should settle for compensation around that figure. Indeed, according to reported figures, for every episode of the show, Aniston will be paid around $1.1 million.
However, keeping in mind the impact of inflation, Aniston is certainly making less than a million dollars. For example, the value of a single dollar in 2004 (the year when Friends ended and Aniston was making a million per episode) would be equivalent to $1.36 in the current year. This means that, in inflation-adjusted terms, Aniston is actually making $809K per episode.
But it is still a very lucrative deal, considering this is a new show and may not become as famous as Friends. Also, the compensation is most likely tied to the amount of screen time being taken by every cast member. For example, Aniston’s co-star Witherspoon would be making just as much, while Carell would be getting paid around $600K mostly because of smaller screen time compared to both Aniston and Witherspoon.
The Morning Show is one of the shows which would help Apple establish a footing in the streaming media industry, and is expected to make it to the screen sometime in the fall of this year.
