Lifetime Adapting Top Of the Morning Book Into a TV Movie
The morning show wars may soon be heading to Lifetime. The cable network is looking at adapting Top of the Morning, based on the book of the same name by former New York Times reporter Brian Stelter, into a two-hour TV movie.
The book follows the cutthroat world of morning TV, where ABC's Good Morning America has recently surged while NBC's Today has stumbles in the wake of several missteps — in particular, the messy departure of co-anchor Ann Curry. Also likely to be addressed: GMA anchor Robin Roberts' battle with cancer and triumphant return to the show.
