Aspiring news producer Becky Fuller has dreamed since childhood of working for the Today show, but her dedication to her career is offputting to potential suitors. After being laid off from her job at the local Good Morning New Jersey, her mother advises her to give up her dream before it becomes an embarrassment. However, Becky perseveres, sending many different rsums out. She finally receives a call from IBS, which is looking for a producer on its struggling national morning show, DayBreak.After a discouraging job interview with Jerry Barnes, who dismisses both her and DayBreak as alsorans, Becky bumps into one of her heroes, veteran television journalist Mike Pomeroy in an elevator. She is brushed off rudely, but is told by the other passenger that this is just typical of Mike. Seemingly against his better judgement, Jerry hires Becky to be DayBreaks executive producer. On her first day, Becky realizes she has signed on to a show in turmoil, lacking in direction and money. After meeting the acerbic but longsuffering cohost Colleen Peck, who predicts Beckys demise, she fires the conceited cohost Paul McVee, much to the delight of her coworkers. Becky chooses a reluctant Mike as Colleens new cohost. Mike is under contract to IBS, but has managed to mostly escape being utilized while still getting paid. Becky finds a clause in his contract by which he is obliged to accept an official job offer or lose his salary, effectively blackmailing him into accepting the position. ........
