Our utopian dreams of the morning talk show may have been shattered by the bitter in-fighting on The View (Rosie-era), so it may come as no surprise that Brad and Lori, hosts of Wake Up America!, don’t entirely get along. If you’ve ever wondered just what barbs the co-hosts were capable of trading during commercial breaks, this is your chance to get a glimpse behind the scenes of your favorite nighttime morning show. Bradford Scobie and Laura Sweeney star as a closeted gay Republican and ex-meth-head divorced soccer mom, respectively, who welcome crackpot celebrities, get hopped up on coffee, and let out the vicious inner selves beneath their pearly white smiles.
