In Hollywood you're only as good as your last flick, and Dragonfire Films exec Peter Dragon has hit bottom with his $150 million bomb "Slow Torture." His only hope to get back to the way things were is the shoot-'em-up film "Beverly Hills Gun Club," and the only person that will help him is ex-child star turned hooker Wendy Ward. Written by

HBO wanted to pick up the series, but creator Chris Thompson and Joel Silver elected to go with Fox's higher-budgeted air order instead. Fox ended up airing only 8 shows before the series was canceled, with the remaining 5 episodes left to air on the FX cable network. See more »
If you like the current FOX TV series "Arrested Development" (perhaps even "Dream On") you would have liked FOX's "Action." Set in the intensely high-stress environment of Hollywood, this show had the same tone, feel and cynicism of "Arrested Development", but with humour a touch more risque - perhaps too risque for a 9:00 pm timeslot.
Critically well-received with decent reviews, the show was also aired on Bravo's "Brilliant But Cancelled" showcase. "Action" was simply too edgy, too offensive, and too jaded for its time, with wickedly dark humour and remarkable wit. In time it would have found its audience, but the plug was pulled too soon.
Those involved in the entertainment industry would, in particular, enjoy the loathsome humour and cynicism.
Rumour has it, it may be released on DVD.
