Storyline

Oliver Platt plays Wallace Benton, a journalist for a New York tabloid magazine called the NY Ledger. He works along side his soon to be ex-wife, and various other people, using his journalistic instincts to get the story no matter what it takes. He seems to drink heavily, and he curses, so he's clearly an average guy, with no super human qualities about him. On the side, he teaches a class full of journalism students, who sometimes go along on his researching "missions," and he frequently uses them to get information on stories he has done, or is doing, to save himself some time. Benton is a smooth talker with a lot of tricks up his sleeve, always searching for more information to add just the right touch to his articles, and he sometimes finds himself using somewhat devious tactics to get that information.

A great new addition
4 October 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Only one episode of Deadline has aired, and I'm already a fan. I must admit, I was looking forward to this show way before it premiered, but now that I have seen it, I love it. The show stars Oliver Platt as Wallace Benton, a journalist for a New York tabloid paper called the Ledger. He always gets this information he needs for his stories no matter what it takes.

Wallace works at the same paper as his wife, and they seem to be in the middle of a divorce/separation, tho they're clearly still on really good terms. Benton, along with his journalism, teaches a group of journalism grad students. He uses one of his students, a female-I forget her name, to help him research stories, and she's one of the main characters. He has other students who are in the show less, but they also help him get information for his stories. I love Platt in general, and I think he is perfect in this role. He's passionate about what he does, he works hard, and it looks as tho he's a kind of guy who is always going to try to do the right thing. I like that in a character. Platt is also very funny in this show. I think overall, the show is great. Great characters, perfect casting, and a thrilling plot. I think this show has a bright future.
