Storyline

When we meet George (Ken Finkleman) again, he's no longer trying to be... well, such a good dog. Ditched by his live-in girlfriend Claire, it's onward and upward for George, who reconnects with old flame Virginia Hailwood (Lolita Davidovich, Gods and Monsters, Play it to the Bone), the socialite daughter of a very wealthy - and very conservative - media baron. When opportunity knocks, George answers, and quickly finds himself the head of Daddy's newest concern: the yet-to-launch Canadian arm of a right-wing American TV news network called Right News. Never one to let a simple clash of ideologies get in the way of a chance for a private executive bathroom, George is sure he's up for the challenge at work. Written by Shaftesbury

This show is brilliant!
28 June 2012 | by olymadamSee all my reviews

This show is a perfect example of sarcastic, well written, mockumentary-style television. Fair warning - if you listen to Beck or Limbaugh, this show is probably not for you. It centers around George Findlay, a cynical, selfish (and incidentally Jewish) TV producer who is given the job of running a Christian, right-wing TV network (Right News) by his girlfriends rich, ultra-conservative father. But the show isn't just about mocking the conservative right and their take on the news - it also fabulously lampoons workplace politics and relationships. The push for sensational news is universal no matter what network, and Right News is no exception. The characters are well defined and hilarious - from the perfect Christian woman with an addiction to porn to the egotistical news anchor who thinks sexual harassment is something made up by leftist conspirators. I highly recommend it!
