Quite interesting, but should not be listed as a Comedy by IMDb
3 January 2007 | by zillenSee all my reviews

It is a fairly dark edgy look at tabloid magazines and "celebs lives" in Hollywood. Courteney Cox's character Lucy is pretty good, but so far the star for me is Ian Hart who plays the schizophrenic photographer, Don. He is brilliant. A lot of drama and irony - but definitely not a comedy. I am guessing that the story line is taking "real life" up a few levels, but there seems a ring of truth throughout. Courteney Cox presumably knows Hollywood very well. The pilot was well written and a relief to watch as it was commercial free for this one time. Some of the scenes moved too quickly and at times it was confusing. But I will continue watching to see how it develops - it will be interesting to see if the writers can avoid repetition in this type of storyline.
