OVERVIEW

powered by AFI

Brief Synopsis

Diminutive Danny DeVito, as both actor and director, skewers television, the ratings system, big business and anything else that gets in the way in this first movie-for-television made for The Movie Channel, playing New Jersey trucking magnate Vic DeSalvo, who breaks into television by having the worst idea ever to come down the pike accepted by a disgruntled, just-fired TV progamming chief. The neophyte's script becomes the biggest hit in television history and Vic DeSalvo becomes the industry's darling.
