Basket-case network news producer Jane Craig falls for new reporter Tom Grunnick, a pretty boy who represents the trend towards entertainment news she despises. Aaron Altman, a talented but plain correspondent, carries an unrequited torch for Jane. Sparks fly between the three as the network prepares for big changes, and both the news and Jane must decide between style and substance.Written by

One of the anchormen asks for water at his desk. The Italian version mistranslates "I want Walter at my desk". See more »
This is a brutal layoff. And all because they couldn't program Wednesday nights.
You can make it less brutal by knocking a million or so off your salary... Bad joke, I'm sorry.

Excellent movie about a big media firm and the goings on both on and off camera. Covering several years, the film centers on 3 upwardly mobile, young hopefuls, all striving for their place within the corporation. Well written dialogue, flawless acting, and a riveting story made for 2 hours of solid entertainment.
