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.

Arrgh It's Canned?!?!
31 December 2002 | by jgrayson_auSee all my reviews

Typical, just when we here in Australia get the show, I find out it's canned. Saw it for the first time last night (new years eve) at like 2am. Excellent show. Oliver platt is a genius, Lili Taylor is one of the most underated actors (and lookers!) around and the show had exceptional writing. I was just about ready to say stuff sleep, stay up and watch it, and I find out it's been dumped. Darn! NBC - FOOLS!
