Channel 4’s Upfront 2015 event for the advertising industry today broke the news that Morning has Broken, a 6 x 30-minute comedy written by and starring Julia Davis, has been commissioned.

Ordered by Head of Comedy Phil Clarke and Commissioning Editor Rachel Springett, the series will see Davis as Gail Sinclair, the ‘Queen of Daytime’ and star of Good Morning… with Gail Sinclair.

After eight glorious years of high ratings and winning awards, things begin to go wrong for Sinclair when the programme begins to lose viewers and tensions break out within the production team.

Made by Brown Eyed Boy, the series will be directed by How Not To Live Your Life star Dan Clark and produced by Gary Reich.
