Spirited young producer Becky Fuller (Rachel McAdams) has a tough job on her hands when she's asked to revive the fortunes of flagging breakfast TV show Daybreak, which has a reputation for eating up and spitting out even the most seasoned producers.
Her first job is to bring in legendary, but cranky, TV presenter Mike Pomeroy (Harrison Ford) to work with diva-esque anchorwoman Colleen Peck (Diane Keaton). But things start to go wrong when Becky's new presenters begin bickering live on air. To make matters worse, her love affair with fellow producer Adam (Patrick Wilson) has started to go off the boil.
Can Becky keep it together long enough to bring in the ratings and save Daybreak - all while rescuing her love life? A fun and frothy romantic comedy from Roger Michell, the director of Notting Hill.
Screenplay: Aline Brosh Mckenna
