Plot Synopsis

BREAKING GREENVILLE is a half-hour reality series that takes viewers behind the cameras of two real-life TV news stations in one of the smallest TV markets in America -- Greenville, MS -- spotlighting their rivalry and the individual newscasters determined to take their jobs seriously, even when some of the news they cover is less than serious. Whether it's a cat stuck in a tree or a low-pressure storm system, this group of competing news frenemies learns fast that making something out of nothing is challenging and rewarding. At WABG, the news personalities are: Lucy Biggers, the morning anchor, who was born and raised in Fairfield, CT, and is the daughter of Sissy Biggers, a staple on Lifetime and Food Network in the 1990s; Pam Chatman, the news director, who was commemorated with her own dedicated portion of Highway 61 as well as a statewide holiday by the Mississippi state legislature in 2008; David Lush, the news producer, who also has three weekly on-air segments; and Lakiya Scott, the evening anchor, who was born in France, raised in Atlanta, and attended graduate school in Michigan. These news personalities work at their rival station, WXVT: Eric Zernich, a weekend meteorologist/reporter, who graduated with honors in atmospheric science from The Ohio State University; Callie Carroll, the morning news anchor, who is fresh out of college and away from her home of Missouri for the first time; Renae Skinner, a co-anchor, who has made it her journalistic mission to expose crime, social injustices, and institutional corruption; Steve Schill, an anchor/meteorologist, whose first weather gig was in Eureka, CA, where he produced and hosted a live one-hour Sunday evening talk show; Vernon Turner, the chief meteorologist, who joined WXVT in July of 2012 as the weekend weather person; and Woodrow 'Woody' Wilkins, a native of Greenville, who is a Navy veteran and the station's news director.
On Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 10:30pm ET/PT, truTV premiered the Season 1 finale of BREAKING GREENVILLE. In the season ender, "Number, Please!," both stations pull out all the stops before the ratings come in. Callie steps on the scale one last time, Eric tries to blow everyone away with his tornado story, and Lucy throws everything but the kitchen sink into her morning show.
