The Cleaner Will Premiere Its Second Season on June 23rd

Season two of the hit A&E original scripted drama series The Cleaner, starring Benjamin Bratt, Grace Park, Amy Price-Francis and Esteban Powell premieres Tuesday, June 23 at 10Pm Et/Pt. The second season will feature thirteen one-hour episodes.

Film review: 'Suits'

Creatives vs. managers. That's a battle the entertainment industry can certainly identify with and, happily, this brainy comedy at the Nortel Palm Springs International Film Festival extends its comic outlook to just about every profession.

A devilishly funny send-up of advertising, big-agency style, "Suits" could pocket some significant change for a distributor willing to take a chance on a low-budget, anti-establishment satire whose appeal could certainly be milked in college towns. Any upper-level English, journalism or liberal arts major contemplating a job in the big, bad, entry-level world (possibly in advertising or media) could get a kick out of this cheeky comedy.

Indeed, "Suits" is the saga of one Ken Tuttle (Randy Pearlstein), a recent literature grad toiling away at a big-time ad agency in Manhattan. He's writing copy for the sale of such staples as batteries, deodorants and now, female hygiene articles, and he fears he's turned into a hack.

Like most successful business organizations, the agency is middle-managed by suits, power-mongers who look good in meetings. The actual work is done by the creatives, the motley gaggle of writers and goof-offs who come up with the actual product, in this case the ad campaigns. Essentially, the conflict in "Suits" is the war between the MBA-ish suits and the countercultural creatives. Sound familiar?

Fortunately, filmmaker Eric Weber, who toiled long in the ad game himself, has doled out a generally even-handed comedy, seeing humor on both sides and poking crazy fun at the stiffness of the suits and the immaturity of the creatives. It's often deliriously funny, more than a little bawdy and, in general, a consistently entertaining work.

It's the talented, well-chosen cast that fleshes out "Suits" to credible, comedic dimension, including Pearlstein's subtle portrayal of the conflicted copywriter. Special praise also to Robert Klein for his convincing turn as the agency head whose smarts and instincts keep the agency on course. Tony Hendra is wonderful as a talented creative director whose inner demons do daily battle with his writing talents; Paul Lazar is amusing as an untalented dweeb who kowtows to management; Ingrid Rogers is winning as a somewhat insecure and defensive "creative"; Mark Lake is so credible in his three pieces as a kiss-ass suit that you'd think he just got his MBA from Stanford last spring; and Eben More is hilarious as a prissy back-stabber.

"Suits" is Savile Row in its cut and look, owing to cinematographer Peter Nelson's comic compositions and costume designer Ivan Ingermann's daffy fits.
