TV news gets the big screen treatment once more in Roger Michell’s Morning Glory which hits screens next January.
After being fired from a local news program, TV producer Becky Fuller’s (Rachel McAdams) career begins to look as bleak as her hapless love life. Stumbling into a job at “Daybreak” (the last-place national morning news show), Becky decides to revitalise the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford).
Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts – let alone work with his new co-host, Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton), a former beauty queen and longtime morning show personality who is more than happy covering morning “news.”
As Mike and Colleen clash, first behind the scenes and then on the air, Becky’s blossoming love affair with fellow producer, Adam Bennett (Wilson) begins to unravel –and soon Becky is struggling to save her relationship, her reputation, her job and ultimately, the show itself.
Morning Glory hits cinemas on 21st January 2011
