The pressure cooker world of morning TV is the setting for this sharply performed laugh-fest. Combining the fast-paced energy of an old-school screwball comedy with a modern attitude, the tale sees sacked local telly producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) given one last shot at success when she’s hired to reinvigorate the failing national breakfast show 'Daybreak'. Her ratings rescue plan involves pairing current host, Colleen Peck (Keaton), with veteran newsman, Mike Pomeroy (Ford), in the hope of creating on-screen magic. But with snobby Mike refusing to cover light-hearted topics and, worse still, hating Colleen's guts, the battles begin, both off-air and on. Naturally, the more the pair fights, the harder Becky's life gets, threatening her blossoming relationship with fellow producer Adam, her job and ultimately, the show itself.
Melanie Griffith stars as an ambitious secretary who starts a new job working for a nightmare boss and falls for an executive.
