Goofball comedy directed by former Saturday Night Live writer Adam McKay.
Will Ferrell stars as Ron Burgundy, a top rated 1970's San Diego anchorman who believes women have a place in the newsroom - so long as they stick to covering fashion shows or late breaking cooking news, that is. So when Ron is told he'll be working with a bright young newswoman (Christina Applegate) who's beautiful, ambitious and intelligent enough to be more than eye candy, it's not just a clash of two TV people with really great hair - it's war.
Seven years after capturing the heart of his co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is offered the chance of lifetime: to be in the world's first 24 hour global cable news network, GNN, in New York City. The newsman quickly rounds up his classic news team, sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and Weather Man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and heads to The Big Apple. Upon arriving, he is quickly challenged by his strong female boss, Linda Jackson (Meagan Good), Australian multi-millionaire network owner Kench Allenby (Josh Lawson) and a chiseled popular lead anchor, Jack Lime (James Marsden).
It's up to Ron and the team to find their own way to the top of news and the top of the ratings.
