Storyline

David Weiss, young and idealistic, joins struggling TV network IBS. His coworkers include the shark-like Mick McClaren, the airheaded Lindsay Urich, and Joanne Waters, the network's token black executive. His immediate boss, programming exec Paul Weffler, combines McClaren's amorality with Urich's cluelessness, which means his job is always threatened by both of them (and by Waters). Finally, the network president, Red, is always right, even when he isn't. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Like "The Office" but for folks having an IQ 30 points higher.
15 April 2006 | by thenullcorporationSee all my reviews

Funny in an edgy, biting way; the way you don't want to admit to bumping into in your otherwise dull and dreary life. Not as disquieting as Eraserhead, but not as deep either. No hidden symbolism, no Kafkaesque allegory here. In fact it shows the shallowness of its characters all too well in crisp reality.

To say that John Cleese was wasted in "Death Be Not Preempted Toight" is to have missed the whole damned point! If you loved Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka more than Dahl's original, don't make the effort to find this respite from feel good comedy.

If you prefer Schweppe's Bitter Lemon over Lemon Dry then hunt down these few tasty morsels.
