From director Roger Michell (“Notting Hill”, “Venus”), producer J.J. Abrams (“Felicity” “Alias” “Lost” “Star Trek”) and writer Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada” “27 Dresses”), comes “Morning Glory,” a new romantic comedy set in the hilarious and dysfunctional world of morning television. Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton star along side Patrick Wilson and Jeff Goldblum.
When hard-working TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) is fired from a local news program, 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 revitalize the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Ford). Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts – let alone work with his new co-host, Colleen Peck (Keaton), a former beauty queen and long-time morning show personality who is more than happy covering morning “news”. As Mike and Colleen clash, first behind the scenes and then 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.
Opens November 10th.
