A Biting Look at TV Sitcom Production

Orlando Weekly | March 27, 2007
David Duchovny, Justine Bateman, Ioan Gruffudd and Sigourney Weaver (also in Snow Cake) star in this biting look at the creatively draining world of TV sitcom production. Duchovny is a passionate writer who is essentially in the wrong business. He watches in near helplessness as a show he penned is turned from a sharp, emotionally resonant comedy into pointless, broad pabulum by suits like Weaver's delightfully awful network exec. A bearded Duchovny emerges as a surprisingly likable guy who, in true Hollywood style, is not averse to manipulative backstabbing when called for; from the moment the goofy and inept Zach gets cast as his lead, it's clear it’s not going to be an easy ride for him. Directed by Orange County's Jake Kasdan.
