Taking cues from Kathie Lee and Hoda, Morning Buzz Live! satirizes the wacky world of boozed-up morning TV.

During a regular taping, veteran host Marie-Claire (Racquel Belmonte) is forced to work with Linda Wu (Carla Mah), a diversity hire replacing white guy Josh (Kyle Fines). All three employ wild antics in order to boost ratings while grappling with their own deep-rooted issues with the entertainment industry.

At its best, the show mimics SNL sketches, with each actor one-upping the other with slapstick humour. All of the scenes dont make a coherent whole, and the ending seems to go off course. But these talented young artists show promise, not only as comedic actors but as writers as well.
