One of the Better Black Independent Films in Recent Memory
25 February 2000 | by IboChildSee all my reviews

With so many films that "dumb down" for the audience, it is refreshing to see a film with some level of intelligence. Isaiah Washington gives one of his better performances as an executive of an upstart television network (think WB or UPN). Nicole Ari Parker once again demonstrates her range as an actor in her role as a struggling sitcom writer/producer. If you need just one reason to see the film, see it for her performance. Another would be for those interested in learning more about what goes on "behind-the-scenes" of network television. Not a perfect film, but definitely worth a look.
