Trivia

Profit's exploration of Gracen&Gracen's interface is done through a 3D-image rendering interface, which represents the entire company as a building with a series of offices. This is VRML (Virtual Realilty Modeling Language) which was, at the time, believed to be the way that future websites would be built. See more »

Bring it Back!
4 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Back in 1996 when Fox was not picking up further episodes, I called programming and pleaded with them to reconsider. I have never done that with any show before or since. Profit was by far the most entertaining and compelling drama, ever. Homicide Life on the Street was a close second but lacked the dark intrigue of Profit. The end of each episode always left one awe struck and wanting more. In an era of mind-numbing reality shows who's only virtue is that it's cheap to produce, network prime time is becoming a complete wasteland; pushing even more viewers to cable. Any network picking up the rights and reintroducing this show will have a major hit on their hands.
