Lifetime Scrapped Plans for Morning-News Movie That Put Spotlight on ‘Today’

10 May 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Lifetime movie that was supposed to cast a jaundiced eye on the war between the nation’s most-watched morning-news programs will not see the light of day at the cable network.

Lifetime generated headlines when it announced its intention to develop a TV movie based on CNN media reporter Brian Stelter’s 2013 tome “Top of the Morning.” The book took readers behind the scenes of NBC’s “Today” show in 2012 as it suffered amid ratings declines and the ouster of then co-anchor Ann Curry, all while it grappled with losing the morning TV crown to ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Some pundits even offered their takes on which actors should play each of the morning personalities involved in the a.m. drama.

But Lifetime, part of A+E Networks, a joint venture of Disney and Hearst, let its option on the project lapse several months ago, according to three people familiar with the situation. »
