I’m thinking of having someone to help me run the site. To possibly help with photos, interviews, videos and links to certain films etc as obviously I’m not able to update the site 24/7. Drop me an ask if you’re interested!
Hunderby and Nighty Night star Julia Davis is working on her latest comedy project, for Channel 4.
Morning Has Broken will see Davis take on the lead role of Gail Sinclair, the star of a popular daily television programme, Good Morning… with Gail Sinclair.
Dubbed the ‘Queen of Daytime’, things begin to go wrong for Sinclair when, after eight glorious years of high ratings and winning awards, the programme begins to lose viewers and tensions break out within the production team.
Gail’s home life is no better, having separated from husband Craig and currently undergoing relationship counselling with little success; whilst their 14-year old daughter, Christina, bears the brunt of her mother’s frustrations about age, weight and youthfulness.
Producers say: “Morning Has Broken follows the rise and fall of Gail Sinclair and her attempts to desperately hang onto her power and popularity. It’s a show less about the making of television and more about the relationships between a group of co-workers who, everyday, are under the immense pressure to deliver topical, meaningful content in the world of current affairs, lifestyle, medical issues and showbiz.”
Both written by and starring Julia Davis, a 45-minute pilot episode of Morning Has Broken will be filmed in London during the latter half of May.
Made by Brown Eyed Boy, the pilot will be directed by How Not To Live Your Life star Dan Clark and produced by Gary Reich.
Should the pilot prove popular with Channel 4 bosses, a full series is likely to go into production later this year.
Davis’s most recent comedy project was 2012's dark period sitcom Hunderby, with Sky Atlantic. The broadcaster was keen for a second series but the development of this new title suggests none will be forthcoming.
This blog now has an Instagram dedicated to Julia!
