Morning Has Broken will see Julia take on the role of Gail Sinclair, the 'Queen of Daytime' and star of Good Morning… with Gail Sinclair, while Nick will play one of Gail's fellow breakfast anchors.

After eight years of high ratings and awards, things begin to go wrong for Gail as ratings drop and tensions break out within the production team. David will play the role of an American producer who has been brought in to try and save the floundering show.

David, best known for playing Ross Geller in Friends, said: "I've been a massive fan of Julia's for years, and I'm thrilled to be able to finally work with her and Nick on this fantastic comedy."

Rachel Springett, commissioning editor for comedy at Channel 4, added: "Julia is undoubtedly one of our most talented comedic writers and actresses and it's a testament to the quality of her writing that she can attract such a big star. We are thrilled to have David Schwimmer star alongside Julia in this exciting new series for the channel."

Morning Has Broken is due to air in 2016.
