When Amanda Gallo, fresh from the backwater of local TV,
lands the job of her dreams at FAIR News—the coveted
morning anchor slot—she’s finally made it: a six-figure
salary, wardrobe allowance, plenty of on-air face time,
and a chance to realize her dreams, not to mention buy
herself lunch. Amanda Wakes Up takes off as Amanda feels
for the first time that she can make her mom and her best
friend proud and think about an actual future with her
boyfriend, Charlie. But she finds her journalistic ideals
shredded as she struggles to keep up with the issues in a
ratings-crazed madhouse—battling for hair and makeup
time, coping with her sexist (but scathingly handsome)
coanchor, Rob, mixing up the headlines with pajama
modeling on the street, and showing Benji Diggs, her
media maestro boss, that she’s got what it takes.
As the news heats up in a hotly contested election season
and a wild-card candidate, former Hollywood actor Victor
Fluke, appears on the scene, Amanda’s pressure-cooker job
gets hotter as her personal life unravels. Walking a
knife’s edge between ambition and survival, and about to
break the biggest story of her career, Amanda must decide
what she’s willing to give up to get ahead—and what she
needs to hold on to to save herself.
