Live Shot was a short-lived but high-quality show during the initial start up season for the UPN network. With a balance of comedy and drama, the show explored the inner workings of a Los Angeles television news operation. Its musical score consisted almost entirely of popular music. Professionals in the news business embraced Live Shot as one of the few television series that "got it right."
Hill Harper (Tommy Greer) and Nia Long (Ramona) first appeared together as friends a year before in an episode of "The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air" ('Will Steps Out', season 5, episode 11). See more »

"We, the members of Odd Man Out, will be bringing some of our brothers and sisters of the LA broadcast news media out of their closets and into the bright, warm light of self-respect and pride. We expect you, as a member of the LA broadcast media..." - you know, I don't like this group talking about my member.

An unappreciated early UPN show
This was high quality offering from UPN's first season. It was a smart, flashy, behind the scenes drama about an L.A. tv news program. The writing and stories were uniformly good, the look and feel of the show very slick (almost to a fault), the use of background music exceptional. The actors were all good and worked together well. A minor drawback was that all the actors were so good-looking to the point of straining credibility.
