Synopsis

When hard-working TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) is fired from a local news programme, her 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 (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 (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. McAdams is a little fireball in her role, Diane Keaton reminds us just how good she is and Ford is wonderfully relaxed as the grumpy elder statesman.
