Deadline is a short film about America's most popular incendiary news opinion talk show, 'The Final Word.' Ted Warner, the volatile host of the show, has just booked a man named James McCartney who is at the center of a political firestorm to be on his show. The star of a political attack ad that's gone viral, James claims that one of the presidential nominees is responsible for his wife's death. As they each try to make their case both men learn that the other may not be what they seem and the film explores how far each side is willing to go in order to win.
America is waiting.
