Storyline

A look behind the scenes of network television. Rob Malone is the president of LGT, a television network fighting for ratings, and usually losing. Taking up the battle with Malone are Lori Volpone and casting executive, Malcolm Laffley. Each episode takes a look into how a network runs - how the executives deal with the stars, how they make big budget deals while trying to keep the network financially stable. Malone has too much on his hands, the owner of the company drifts in and out of a coma, the casting exec. is being accused of sexual harassment, and the VP in charge of development is doing everything she can, no matter how evil, to move up in the ranks.

bring it back!!!
30 March 2003 | by grow-itSee all my reviews

I loved this series, I wish some one would put out video's for sale. this series could go on for ever. Rudolf Martin playing as Nicolai Krasnikove is forever great. Why did this show just stop? I hear it had low ratings, bull It way the best mini showtime had or has on! or give people a chance to own it.
