The Morning Show - behind the scenes
Nobody knows morning television better than the Americans ans with The Morning Show, we got a glimpse behind the scene to this smiley and friendly morning show. The series took us right into the lives of the people who helps America wake up in the morning. But there was something rotten behind the glossy façade.
The first season took us right in to the drama at UBA network, when anchor and it-girl Alex Levi´s on-air partner of 15 years, Mitch Kessler, is fired amidst a sexual misconduct scandal. #metoo has never been told more sharply. Never have we seen a more brutal fall than the fate of The Morning show-host Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell). Not to talk about the brutal consequences for everyone around him, when an entire working environment is heading for a melt-down.
The series is inspired by (former) CNN's Brian Stelter's book "Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV", but is in no way a documentary. Stars like Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon have led the way in this meta-production of an EMMY-winner.
And behind it all: showrunner Kerry Ehrin. We are so excited that she is heading to Bergen to talk about how she has worked to develop the series!
