Alex (Aniston) and Mitch (Carell) are pop­u­lar long­time an­chors of an early-morn­ing news show, but their world is turned up­side down when Mitch is ac­cused of sex­ual mis­con­duct. In the wake of Mitch’s fir­ing, net­work ex­ec­u­tives hire as­pir­ing jour­nal­ist Bradley (Witherspoo­n) in hopes of breath­ing some fresh life into the show. But Bradley soon be­comes a se­ri­ous threat to her older co­host, who be­gins to sus­pect she’s be­ing el­bowed out of the hard-won po­si­tion she’s held for more than a decade. It doesn’t help that the am­bi­tious new­comer is clearly anx­ious to out­shine her. Now the vet­eran an­chor must do what­ever she can to stay on top in a ruth­less, male­dom­i­nated in­dus­try where rat­ings — and money — rule supreme.

“We pull back the curtain on the power dy­nam­ics be­tween men and women in the high-stakes world of morn­ing news shows,” Witherspoo­n says. “It’s a real in­sider’s view into the lives of the peo­ple who help Amer­ica wake up ev­ery day.”
