James L. Brooks proved that the newsroom was fertile ground for a romantic comedy with 1987’s fantastic Broadcast News, and Paramount is hoping to tap into some of the same magic more than twenty years later with Morning Glory.  The studio gathered quite the cast for the effort, as Glory is toplined by Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Patrick Wilson, and Jeff Goldblum.  The film follows McAdams as the producer of a morning news show who “decides to revitalize 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.”

Roger Michell (Notting Hill) is directing from a script by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada); notably, J.J. Abrams (Star Trek) is producing.  Check out the trailer, which is not without its charms, after the break.

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 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.
