With George Herbert Walker Bush prepared to strike Iraqi forces, CNN was in a unique position to deliver 24 hour coverage. Producers Robert Wiener (Michael Keaton) and Igrid Formanek (Helena Bonham Carter) capitalized on this opportunity by offering unflinching reporting that risked their lives as they became correspondents from Baghdad just before the first U.S. Gulf War. Based on a true story that changed television journalism, this powerful HBO feature won Mick Jackson a Director's Guild Award for his work.
