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.

amusing comedy drama
22 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

I particularly enjoyed great performances from many talented actors especially Tuc Watkins and am looking forward to seeing the whole series again. Any new release on DVD would be welcome. This series is definitely worth a watch if you have a sense of humor and not necessarily into sitcoms but a more subtle type of humor. The series deepens in perspective in the next season and maintains it's original appeal. What a pity it ended so soon. More of this type of comedy drama is needed on TV. Subsequent seasons have great additions to the cast which keep the story fresh. I also liked very much a quirky opening credit and theme tune.
