Good Morning Show

(グッドモーニングショー)

 
Synopsis:

A winner of the Montreal and Japan Academy Prize, veteran director and screenwriter, Ryoichi Kimizuka (Bayside Shakedownseries, Nobody to Watch Over Me) tackles a new genre—the morning variety show!

Combining news, sports, entertainment, food and fashion trends, the so called “morning wide show” format offers viewers a little bit of everything to jump-start their day. Serving as main host of one such show is Shingo Sumida (Kiichi Nakai), a former television news reporter trying to salvage his television career. Once, he was an anchorman at the top of his game, but now he has been forced to step down after a botched report in the field.

On this especially unlucky day, he finds himself beset by a host of challenges. First, his beautiful but delusional co-host (Masami Nagasawa), having misinterpreted their relationship, plans to announce live on air that they’ve been having an affair - in front of his wife! Then, the show’s producer informs Shingo that the programme is being cancelled. When news breaks about an armed man creating a hostage crisis downtown, the embattled Shingo finds himself tackling this mess too. By the end of the day, his wits, sincerity, career and privacy are teetering on a cliff-hanging edge between the Good Morningshow and the nightmare-that-is-live-TV show!
