Storyline

A look behind the scenes of network television. Rob Malone is the president of LGT, a television network fighting for ratings, and usually losing. Taking up the battle with Malone are Lori Volpone and casting executive, Malcolm Laffley. Each episode takes a look into how a network runs - how the executives deal with the stars, how they make big budget deals while trying to keep the network financially stable. Malone has too much on his hands, the owner of the company drifts in and out of a coma, the casting exec. is being accused of sexual harassment, and the VP in charge of development is doing everything she can, no matter how evil, to move up in the ranks.

This is network tv? wow!
1 October 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Now, I don't know much about how t.v. networks run and the people who work there, but I have a feeling it's a lot like Beggars and Choosers! From Rob Malone, network president, down to Lori Volpone, vice president of development-- the characters are both smart and funny. The series gives you an inside view of how a network runs, and how everyone working there deals with the trials and tribulations of life on the inside.

Inside of this little fictional network, LGT, you see that it's very disfunctional, in a way that most could never imagine. Everyone and their brother are busy backstabbing everyone outside of the network to get ahead in the network, and doing everything they can think of to everyone outside of the network to get the network ahead as a team. Make sense? Maybe not...but it's network television, who said it made sense. All you have to know is this: the characters are funny, the acting is above top notch, and the storylines will keep you glued to the set every week. The show has a good way of keeping you involved...you're always hoping the network pulls thru and their ratings go up, and you find yourself hoping that the people trying to keep this from happening lose, and in the end, they usually do. You can't help but watch, and when you do, you can't help but stay by the t.v. till it's all over and the problems have been resolved. It's a great show with an awesome cast, and if you wanna get into the business, it might be a good learning tool as well. If you haven't seen the show already, watch it, it tends to grow on you.
