"Good Morning, Miami" is a sitcom which ran from 2002 to 2004 on NBC. Created by "Will & Grace" producers
David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the show focused on the personal and professional life of Jake, the executive producer of the lowest-rated morning show in the country, based in Miami.

Jake decides to accept the risky job when he first sets eyes on the show's beautiful, down-to-earth hairdresser, Dylan, who wows him like nobody before... and presents a romantic challenge like nobody before. Meanwhile, the carnival of clowns at the station includes pompous host Gavin; Jake's wise-cracking assistant, Penny; and highly insecure station manager, Frank. After a while, Jake's ambition changed as he and Penny had a brief relationship.

Early in the first season, the cast was rounded out with Tessie Santiago as Lucia (Gavin's co-host), and Brooke Dillman, who played the station's weather-nun, Sister Brenda. They were written out of the series by the producers who were still searching for the "center" of their program.

During the second season, Jake and Dylan began their relationship, almost even deciding on a relocation to New York together. Victoria Hill, a new station boss, took over the show to get higher ratings, and Gavin struggled to warm up to her. A new weather girl, Joni, was also introduced.

Although only some of the second season was shown in the USA, it was fully shown on TG4 in Ireland several times in daily morning time slot. The series ended with Jake and Dylan deciding to go their separate way, Gavin and Penny deciding to start a family and Frank marrying Gavin's mother.

Trivia

*Though unsuccessful and unacclaimed, the show lasted in the coveted Thursday "Must See TV" lineup for an entire season.

*The show contained numerous references to Feuerstein's earlier work. There is a moment where he chews out Gavin in front of the audience and Penny remarks, "That's one Fired Up little yuppie!" (a reference to his role on the short-lived sitcom "Fired Up"), a moment where he drinks hard liquor and his voice gets hoarse (he did the same thing after eating food that was too spicy in "Woman on Top"). And he remarks that his hair highlights are natural (which he also did in "What Women Want").

*After nine episodes were aired during the second season in the United States, the show was canceled and didn't get to finish airing the rest of the 18 episodes that were ordered for the season. However, all episodes of the second season were shown on TG4 in Ireland.

*Heather Locklear was originally offered the role of Victoria Hill (much like her Catlin Moore role on "Spin City") for the second season of "Good Morning, Miami". She said she liked the show, but turned down the role. The part was given to Tiffani Amber Thiessen.

*For the second season, exterior footage of NBC affiliate WPTV-TV's studio complex in West Palm Beach, Florida was used to portray the exteriors of the fictional "Good Morning, Miami" studios.

*The theme song, entitled "Once in a Lifetime", is played by John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls.
