Film >The TV Set
David Duchovny, Justine Bateman, Ioan Gruffudd and Sigourney Weaver 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 Weaverís 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, itís clear itís not going to be an easy ride for him. Directed by Orange Countyís Jake Kasdan.
