Teary on-air exits. Behind-the-scenes power plays. An iconic brand being dethroned by a glossy rival. No, this isn't a list of plots from one of the soap operas we cover; it's a summation of the war between NBC's Today and ABC's Good Morning America — a war set to get its own Lifetime movie!
According to TVNewser, Brian Shelter's book Top of the Morning is being adapted as a made-for-TV movie. The book details the alleged backstage plot to oust Ann Curry from Today, painting Matt Lauer in a less-than-favorable light. Liz Gateley and Tony DiSantos of DiGa Vision will serve as executive producers.
