9. Shine On with Reese
Created By: Reese Witherspoon
Starring: Reese Witherspoon
Release Date: Monday, Oct. 28
As if Reese Witherspoon wasn’t busy enough juggling multiple projects, she added another onto her plate last year. While producing many feature hits, releasing her first best-selling book, filming Big Little Lies (and The Morning Show and Little Fires Everywhere) and hosting one of the most successful book clubs around, Witherspoon notched a new title to her growing multi-hyphenate: talk show host. The Academy Award-winning actress headlined DirecTV’s Shine On with Reese, a one-on-one conversation series featuring Witherspoon chatting with inspiring women.
If you’ve been watching clips from Shine On with Reese on YouTube because you don’t have DirecTV, have no fear. The first season’s nine episodes are coming to Netflix this month for an uplifting binge-watch. The unique talk show finds Witherspoon interviewing each female guest about their road to achieving their dreams as their experience as a woman. Season 1 included guests Dolly Parton, Ava DuVernay, P!nk, Cleo Wade, Elaine Welteroth, Sara Blakely, Candace Nelson, Glennon Doyle, Abby Wambach, America Ferrera, Kacey Musgraves and Simone Askew.
Shine On with Reese comes from Reese Witherspoon’s media company Hello Sunshine, which has produced the Oscar-nominated films Wild and Gone Girl. Hello Sunshine also produces a number of television series, those Witherspoon stars in and otherwise, as well as webseries and podcasts. The DirecTV talk show marked the first unscripted role in Witherspoon’s career and further extended her brand. As of right now, the show hasn’t returned for a second season and one hasn’t been announced. Don’t miss the first season when it comes to Netflix this month!
